Selection Process

Written Application

Please be aware that only complete applications with all requested documents sent in one batch can be considered.

Interviews

After a review of all applications, the selection committee will assemble a list of candidates to be considered for admission to the program. These candidates will be invited for an interview via video conference system or telephone.
The interview is a positive indication, but not a guarantee of admission. All invited applicants must complete their interview in order to be considered for admission.
Interviews are usually last about 30 minutes and are conducted by one or more staff members of the INEMA program. They serve as an opportunity for the applicant to demonstrate her/his motivation and interest in the field of study.

Post-interview

After each round the applicants will be informed about the outcome of their application, i.e. whether they will be invited to the interview and/or can be admitted to the program.

EPOS scholarships

The decision about the EPOS scholarships is made separately by the DAAD only after the second round of applications. The decision is made based on the application dossiers as well as the assessment of the preliminary selection interviews via video conference system or telephone.
