Who qualifies for the IMPRS-TP?
Students from all countries are welcome as applicants. Applicants must have a 4 year Bachelor or Master of Science (or an equivalent degree) in a relevant field or a Medical Degree. Applications from trainee medical doctors with laboratory experience are particularly encouraged. Please note that you need to have completed your degree prior to starting the PhD program, but not necessarily at the time of application.
As part of the selection process, the IMPRS-TP administrative office will verify the equivalence of the applicants’ academic/degree documents.
Grade / Score
A minimum grade/score applies for MSc degrees: within the German grading system, this is a score of 2.5 (where 1.0 is very good, 5.0 failed); In order to estimate the equivalency of your grade/score to the German grading system, please use the following formula:
|Nmax||=||maximum grade which can be achieved at your University|
|Nmin||=||minimum grade which can be achieved at your University and is still considered a pass|
|Nd||=||grade achieved as given on your transcript and / or certificates|
Candidates whose native language is not English are required to provide a certificate documenting proficiency in English, for example TOEFL.
Candidates applying for the residency/PhD track need to be proficient (C1 - click here for more details) in German.
