- Applicants should have a good first university degree.
- Candidates are required to have a very good knowledge of English and a working knowledge of German.
Applications should be made by 30 April of the year in which the student intends to start the course. Please use the application form available as a download in pdf format. Please submit certified copies of original certificates. Copies of certified copies are not valid.
Language test certificates are required from all applicants with the exception of native speakers. For further details please see the application form. In order to avoid delays, please arrange for test centres to send the test certificate to the Centre for British Studies, Mohrenstraße 60, 10117 Berlin rather than to Humboldt University's main postal address.
Selected candidates will be invited for interviews that usually take place in the second half of June. Places are allocated early in July.
Please note that no decisions concerning the allocation of places for interview are made prior to all applications having been received and read, which, due to the high volume of applications received each year, usually means several weeks after the deadline. You will be notified regardless of the outcome of your application, so please be patient.
