Last call: Submit your application by 1 May!

With less than four weeks to go until our final application deadline, you still have time to apply to the MPP, MIA and MDS programmes and to full scholarships. Here's a review of the application process:

Documents we require:

  • A letter of motivation
  • Copies of your academic transcripts – these can be unofficial copies for now
  • English proficiency certificate

As a reminder, letters of recommendation are now fully optional for the MPP, MIA, and MDS programmes.

Submitting your application is simple:

  • Create an account in our online application portal
  • Select “master’s programmes” in the drop-down menu
  • Click on your programme of interest to start filling out the form. You can upload all of your documents electronically.

Financial aid still available

We are still offering partial scholarships for students who apply by the final deadline (that means tuition reductions ranging from 10% to 50% of the tuition fees). Don’t forget to complete the “Financial information” section of the application if you would like to be considered for financial aid.

Additionally, we will accept a second round of applications for several of our full scholarships until 1 May. These require additional application material, usually an essay.

Finally, our Student Funding Office is there to support you in identifying external funding opportunities. Have you tried searching with our Funding Navigator yet? If you need some guidance, send them an email at studentfunding[at]hertie-school[dot]org.
