Timeline Application Round 2023

Online Application

Our application round 2023 is closed. We will accept applications again from spring 2024.


Please note that your referees also must submit their letters of recommendation by the application deadline. Therefore, we recommend that you nominate your referees directly after registration in our online portal. Please note that you will only be able to submit your application once at least one of your referees has uploaded a letter of recommendation!

Application Interviews

Our application interviews will take place from June 26 to 30, 2023. As we will send out interview applications on short notice in mid-June, we kindly ask all applicants to keep these days free to be available for the interviews.

Due to the Corona pandemic, interviews will be conducted virtually via video conferencing software.

Acceptance and Rejection Letters

Applicants will be notified in July whether or not they are admitted to the program.

Program Start

The program start date for our new IMPRS students is September 15, 2023.

We recommend to arrive on site at least one or two weeks in advance in order to complete the necessary bureaucratic tasks, such as registering at the citizen’s office, opening a bank account, and registering as a doctoral student at the university.
