Important GRE Test Update: Due to worldwide test center unavailability this Spring, Heidelberg University and Göttingen University do not require any GRE test for the May 1, 2019 application deadline round.
Solid knowledge of the English language is necessary for success in the program. If English is not the applicant’s native language, the following internationally-accepted English language tests are accepted: Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), International English Language Testing System (IELTS), or a C1 Advanced/Cambridge Certificate in Advanced English (CAE). Test scores are valid for four years from the application deadline (i.e. the test score is valid if taken after December 01, 2014 for a December 01, 2018 application deadline). Our TOEFL DI code is C308. Please note: The English language test is required for admission to the program, but not for the application submission. If you cannot complete the test before applying, please indicate that it will be taken at a later date.
Your application will also include your:
1) Curriculum Vitae (CV), maximum 3 pages and in English, plus additional supporting documents (all educational diplomas, all academic transcripts, English language test qualification); and
2) Letter of Motivation (in English) up to 3-4 pages in length (Times New Roman, font size 12, line spacing 1.5) with a scanned-in version of a handwritten page preceding the typed Letter of Motivation. The handwritten page (no length requirement) should briefly introduce yourself and your Letter of Motivation.
3) A signed Declaration Form.
