If your native language is neither English nor German, but you have completed your formal education at a school, college or university where English is the language of instruction, then please submit a certificate from the institution to confirm this. The certificate will suffice as proof of your English proficiency and one of the aforemen- tioned tests will not be required. If your native language is German, your Abitur or Matura grade in English will serve as proof of English proficiency. We require a grade of at least befriedigend or equiva- lent. If you cannot submit a copy of your Abitur or Matura , or it does not show a grade for English, then you must submit the result of one of the aforementioned tests. viii. Research Statement - Phase II applicants only Phase II applicants should already be knowledgeable in their research area and have an idea with whom they would like to work at the BMS. We expect the research statement to be at least one page, but maximum two pages long . It should explain the applicant’s ideas with respect to his/her future dissertation, as well as outline the underlying research project. While applicants should be familiar with the research of potential supervisors, prior contact with BMS faculty members is not necessary, however the applicant should mention who could be a suitable supervisor. A descrip- tion of all BMS research areas is here: and the list of BMS faculty members can be found here: . Please have your research statement ready as a pdf file, as you will be asked to up- load it to your online application. Please note that applications which remain incomplete by the submission deadline will not be considered!

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
