An application for admission to the graduate school should include exactly 2 PDF-files consisting of (please take care of the order):

Every applicant should contact two academic or professional referees and ask them to submit completed recommendation forms (doc), optionally accompanied by letters of reference, directly to BiGSEM.

Applicants whose native language is not English must present proof of their language proficiency unless they have completed a college or university degree taught entirely in English. A high score in the Test Of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or any other standardized international test constitutes sufficient evidence of a good command of English.

The available places will be offered to the most promising candidates after a careful selection process. Prospective students are encouraged to add any relevant information that might help the admissions committee in making their decision.
