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

The next application period will open in November 2016. Applicants to the VGSF program should be aware that there are two rounds of evaluations. The first evaluation will take place in December 2016, 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 the end of January 2017.

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,

Josef Zechner & VGSF faculty
