The expert reference, preferably in a sealed envelope, may be submitted with the applications or submitted separately by the referee.
  • An interview with a liaison lecturer, usually held at your university or near where you live (telephone interviews may also be held).
  • Attendance at a selection workshop in Berlin consisting of a one-to-one interview and a group discussion.

At each stage only a small group is selected for the next stage. You will be informed in writing of the decision reached at each stage of the selection procedure.
