    Admission to the GSST can be sought by individuals with a relevant scientific background. A MSc/Diplom degree qualifies for direct entry into the doctoral program. A Bachelor's degree or other degrees not fully equivalent to a MSc may allow admission to a qualification period under some conditions (restrictions apply).

    Admission should take place prior to or at the very beginning of your doctoral project. Admission can take place any time throughout the year. It will be followed by university enrollment at the earliest possible date.

    A. For domestic students

    For admission to the GSST, you need to

    • interview with at least two GSST members
    • be accepted for a doctoral project by the project leader

    The following forms - and documents mentioned therein - are relevant for admission to the GSST:

    Admission as a doctoral student

    Please return all documents to: GSST Office, Dr. Stephan Schröder-Köhne, Josef-Schneider-Straße 2, D15, 97080 Würzburg

    Once you have submitted the relevant documents and all requirements are fulfilled, you will receive a letter of acceptance by the GSST. You will need this for university enrollment at the Central Administration ("Referat für Studienangelegenheiten").

    B. Additional steps for international students

    International students are admitted to the GSST in the same way as domestic students. However, university enrollment takes place via the International Office.
