What Should I Do Before I Apply?
Before submitting any documents familiarize yourself with the application procedure. Take a look at the Berlin, Michigan, Virginia, and Zurich faculty members' websites for more information on their work and projects (see Faculty). If you want more detailed information or advice about your application, contact the member of the Berlin faculty whose work is relevant to your interests and abilities.
In your cover letter/motivation letter, you should describe your research and career interests. On the online application form, identify one or two members of the Berlin faculty who could serve as your dissertation advisor(s).
