How to apply?
We encourage an early preparation of the application which will avoid a late arrivals after the deadline (that cannot be accepted).
The deadline for next term (fall 2019) applications was November 21, 2018.
Interviews will be held during Feb 18-22, 2019 in Heidelberg. Skype/phone interviews may take place earlier.
Our next call for applications (for term fall 2020) will be summer 2019 with the new deadline in November 2019.
A complete application must include the following items:
- A complete application form, including a list of all courses stating the credits, and grades/marks if no transcripts can be provided. You may also attached a pdf of a course list or the transcripts.
- Copies of academic certificates including those of the MSc and/or the BSc degree etc. We also need copies of translations of the certificates. For university admission lateron - not for the IMPRS application already - also the school leaving exam certificate is needed and all certificates in original form. Note that applicants usually do not have a MSc degree yet, so in this case the BSc and the transcripts are sufficient.
- Copies of transcripts and translations.
- If already available: A copy of the MSc and/or BSc thesis (with an English abstract if the thesis is not written in English), or published papers. Most applicants will not have a thesis ready at the time of the deadline.
Further, two letters of recommendation should be organized.
Be sure that all the information you provide to (1) the online registration and (2) the one you upload is identical. If not, the application may be considered as incomplete.
Incomplete applications cannot be accepted.
