Selection & Admission

Applications will be reviewed by an Admissions Committee that includes faculty members of the participating institutes. Candidates will be selected based on their academic qualifications, recommendations, and their performance during an interview. The interview may be held in Munich or in one of the partner institutes. Alternatively, it may be conducted by phone or on skype.


An important part of the selection procedure can be an interview by several faculty members for which the applicants under consideration will be invited to our selection workshop. This will give the opportunity to meet the training faculty, to visit the participating scientific institutions, and to learn more about life in Munich. Applicants who are invited for an interview to Munich will receive financial assistance for travel and accommodation expenses.

The student selection workshop and the interviews for students who apply in 2018 are scheduled to take place 25-27 February 2019.


Decisions about admission will be made each year by about April or earlier and all students will be notified thereafter. Admission to the program may be dependent on the fulfillment of certain requirements that need to be met before the start of the new academic year (e.g. completion of a degree, completion of credit courses, participation in an English language course).
