Instructions for Applying

Required Documents

  • Academic records (high school, Bachelor's, Master’s or MD's transcripts and certificates, respectively)

Please note: All submitted official documents must be written in English, German or need to be translated into either one of these languages. If you are submitting a translated document, please also provide a copy of the original document. For the online application, non-certified translations are sufficient. However, please note that the original (or certified copies thereof) and the certified translation of these documents will have to be presented to the coordination office once candidates have been accepted onto the program. Certification of copies can be issued, for example, by the dean's or registrar's office of your university, a German embassy or consulate, a branch of the German Academic Exchange Service, a public notary or a Goethe Institute.

  • 2 letters of recommendation from scientists familiar with you and your work (e.g., your MD, Master or Bachelor supervisor). You will be automatically notified about the submission of the recommendation letters by your chosen referees. Please note: it is your responsibility to make sure that the referees submit their letters by the application deadline. 
  • 2 brief essays – one describing your previous research experience, the other describing the reasons for your particular interest in the IMPRS-TP program
