Application procedure

If you are close to finishing your graduate studies, please bear in mind our semester start when scheduling your oral defence, since the final results will need to be handed in and you will have to move to Mannheim before the Master courses begin.

Please send your application (form and all documents required as described on page 3 of the form) to our Coordination Office in due time.

Input confirmation can be expected within approx. one week, unless the coordinator is out of office – then you will get an automatic response. If none of both is the case, please ask.


  • 15th May for the winter semester (September)
  • 15th November for the summer semester (March)

We recommend you to submit your personal applicant profile as well.

If the estimated date for finishing your studies lies after the deadline, you can still apply; however, the admission can then only be a provisional one. After obtaining your degree you will need to hand in your final results and, provided all prerequisites are fulfilled, the registration can be then effected.


The fulfilment of the prerequisites qualifies you for the selection process, but does not automatically result in your admission to the programme.

Applications handed in incomplete and/or after the deadline will not come into consideration.
