Our application portal closes on November 5, 2018, at 12 noon Central European Winter Time. The admission committee is composed of professors and doctoral fellows of the Graduate School and will review the applications in 4 steps. In a first step, we check if the applications are complete and if the applicants fulfill the eligibility criteria. In a second step, the committee assigns reviewers for the applications. Based on the reviews, the committee invites applicants for interviews in a third step. In the fourth and final step, the committee creates a shortlist of successful applicants. The Interviews will take place in the first two weeks of February 2019. Invitations to the interviews will be sent out around mid-January. We will inform you about the outcome of the admission process until the end of February 2019.
