Application Documents


For the application you need the following documents (upload):

  1. Bachelor-Diploma or higher.
  2. Transcript of records with an explanation of grades and credit points.
  3. Application essay: the admission essay should have a length of 4-5 pages. The essay is supposed to show that you can independently discuss one of the focus topics of the program (globalization and justice, market and morality, climate change and responsibility, welfare and human dignity, migration and rights, or digitalization and self-determination). The essay serves to determine whether you have a special aptitude for the EELP program. Special attention is paid to whether you are able to develop your own problem in one of the focus topics of the program, whether you can take into account and connect normative and analytic-descriptive aspects, whether you are able to structure your own essay in an easily accessible format and to articulate the essay in a both generally comprehensible and academically adequate language, and whether generally accepted academic standards are observed. There are no fixed guidelines concerning the structure and format of the admission essay.
  4. Language certificates (see language requirements).
