- Do the relevant BMS professors have the capacity to supervise the applicant? - Does the BMS have enough resources in the chosen field to guarantee the completion of the PhD? - Does the applicant rank in the top 10% of his/her year? (The BMS converts all grades to the German grading scale according to German Federal Regulations and only the best 40 applications in each of the Phase I and Phase II catego- ries will be considered further.) D. USEFUL HINTS 1. Applicants who require a scholarship must submit their online application by the first round deadline of 1 December. After that date, only a very limited number of BMS scholarships will be available. 2. A well-written personal statement that answers all the points on page five will help your application stand out from the rest. We strongly encourage female applicants to write about their achievements with confidence. 3. Submit your application as early as possible! At least one week prior to the deadline is recommended. This will give your recommenders plenty of time to write a letter for you. 4. Language tests should be taken well in advance of the application deadline. It is your responsibility to take a test early enough in order to ensure receipt of the required test score by the application deadline. 5. In general, the BMS admits new students once a year for entry in October. However, exceptions for highly talented applicants are sometimes possible.

    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.
