How to apply

To be admitted for the International Masters program in Language Science and Technology, you first need to send us your application. The deadline for application for the program is February 15 of the respective year. Make sure that all required documents belonging to your application arrive by this date; you will then be informed of the result of your application by the beginning of April. If you are not finished with your bachelor's degree yet, you should send preliminary documents instead; see the FAQ.

All documents must be submitted electronically using our registration data bank, log on using the password you received when you submitted your application, and upload your documents, with the exception of documents which are not sent out directly by the applicant, such as TOEFL scores or letters of recommendation. All documents which are required in certified form are to follow as hard copies. Any documents reaching us after the deadline cannot be added to the application file.

Please consult the application checklist and the FAQ for further details.
