The application period for the academic year 2016/2017 is closed.

The next application period will open on November 03, 2016 (2:00pm CET). Applicants to the VGSF program should be aware that there are two rounds of evaluations. The first evaluation will take place on December 13, 2016 (2:00pm CET), and will consider all complete applications which have been submitted by that date. A first round of offers will be made based on that pool of applicants. If not all available positions can be filled on the basis of that first round, applications received after the first cut will also be evaluated. Note that the second and final phase for 2017/2018 runs until January 29, 2017 (2:00pm CET).

In case you are interested to apply, we suggest to carefully read the information about the application procedure in order to properly prepare your application. Further information about the program can be found under curriculum. We also propose to take a look at frequently asked questions. For all remaining questions please contact

We are looking forward to your application.

Kind regards,
