Applicants require an university master’s degree (MSc or equivalent) from a relevant discipline to apply. To be able to enroll at one of Munich's universities (TUM or LMU) a master's thesis must have been written during Master's studies.

Applicants who haven't finished their master's degree at the time of application may provide a provisional certificate or bona fide statement from the university stating the marks already obtained and an estimated graduation date. Applicants accepted in the program are required to have completed their master's degree before they can start their PhD in the MUDS program.

Please read the FAQs or contact the MUDS office if you have further questions.
