The application period for the student intake October 2023 will prospectively open on December 1st, 2022. The Admissions Committee reviews the applications to the program and will usually announce the decision in the course of the month following the deadline. If your nationality requires a student visa in order to enter Germany, we strongly recommend that you apply as early as possible, so you have adequate time to obtain your visa. Please keep in mind that, depending on the country you are from, visa processing might take up to 3 to 6 months or even longer. Please check with the local German embassy how long the visa processing would be expected to take.
