Invitation to take subject test 2018

We sent out the letters of invitation for the subject test on Thursday, 5 July 2018.

If you did not receive an e-mail with an invitation then you were not invited to take the test. We will not send an extra e-mail to applicants not invited.

This year, the cut-off for Brain-track applications was 1.3 (German grading system), for Mind-track applications 1.5 (German grading system). This means that we invited only those applicants who had GPAs of 1.3 (Brain) and 1.5 (Mind) or better. Once again, it was a very competitive field with more than 360 applicants.

Invited applicants living/resident in Germany, Switzerland, Austria

You will take the subject test in Berlin: Saturday, 14 July 2018, 10.00–14.00.

All other invited applicants

For all other applicants we will organize a test location in their country of residence. Tests will take place between 14 and 24 July 2018.

Once you have told us where you currently live we will start to search for a test location and check back with you regarding the exact date and time of your test.

Please find information on the subject tests here:

Final decision on admission

You will receive the final decision on whether you have been accepted into our program by mid-August.

Late admission without subject test

Please note that applicants who have not been invited to take the subject test still may get admitted on the basis of waiting time and without having to write a subject test.

Please find information on waiting time admission here:

Visa for students who took the test

Especially applicants coming from countries with time-consuming visa procedures – e.g., Iran, most countries on the African continent, and some countries in South America – have to contact the German embassy now for an appointment soon after mid-August. You must not wait until you receive the definitive information that you have been accepted because it may be too late by then to get a visa in time for the start of the program!

Please turn to the respective German embassy on the basis of the letter you have received from Uni-Assist (pdf attachment in their e-mail to you, starting with the subject field: Your application number xxxxx) which confirms that you have turned in a complete and valid application for our program. (we would like to repeat: Please insist that the embassy supplies you with a visa appointment on the basis of this letter. If you and they wait until you get the final confirmation it may be too late to get a visa before the start of the program.)

Start of teaching period

The teaching period for master cohort 2018 will start on 1 October 2018.
