See you in 2024! But first, some FAQs

The Admissions Office will be closed from 22 December through 2 January, but here are some FAQs and application tips to help out while we’re away. We look forward to receiving your applications!

We’re taking a break here in the Hertie School Admissions Office as a busy year comes to a close, but we’ll be back on 3 January to answer all your questions. With our 1 February priority deadline for the MPP, MIA and MDS around the corner, it’s a good time to reflect on your letter of motivation or scholarship essay. We’ve gathered some FAQs and application tips for you in case you have admissions-related questions during the break.
