Full Registration Process - Step by Step

Below you will get an overview about the whole application procedure divided into steps for regular as well as partial scholarship applicants. Please check by yourself in which step you're at the moment.

If you applied or think about applying for a DAAD scholarship, please visit this page.

1st Step - Online Application

To apply for one of our programs visit the Online Application Form page:

Attention: Please be aware that the application period for both programs has not started yet. When application has opened you will find the link to our online application form right here.

After submitting your application, you will receive a confirmation email stating that we received your application. We will take some time to thoroughly review your documents before we will get back to you in order to let you know about our decision via email.

2nd Step - Acceptance and Application Fee

After you got accepted for the program you have to transfer the application fee of 250,- Euro to our University Bank account within 14 calendar days. Please note that transfer fees have to be paid by the participant. In case you would like to avoid bank fees, of course you are welcome to transfer the complete program fee in one payment. As bank transfers may take some time, a proof of payment (e.g. by sending a faxed or scanned copy of the money transfer form) will be highly appreciated.

3rd Step - Applying for Visa

After we have received your 250,- Euro application fee payment, we will send you an invitation letter and an insurance letter. With those documents please visit your next German embassy and apply for a „Schengen VISA“ as soon as possible.

Please note: If you were applying late and we are already in May, make sure that you would make an appointment at your nearest German embassy already after applying for the program. It is easier to cancel an appointment after you got rejected than getting a last-minute appointment after you got accepted.

4th Step - Complete your Payment

If not already done during the second step yet, please complete your payment within 28 calendar days after you got accepted to the program. Please note that transfer fees have to be paid by the participant. As bank transfers may take some time, a proof of payment (e.g. by sending a faxed or scanned copy of the money transfer form) will be highly appreciated.
