BMS PhD Application Guidelines 3 Please use our online application form to apply for the BMS PhD Program. Before you can access the form, you first have to register with us on our homepage : . Students wishing to enter Phase I of our program are expected to have a Bachelor’s degree or equivalent. Berlin mathematics students in their Hauptstudium can apply for membership to the BMS. For students who are further advanced, part of the Phase I course requirements may be waived. To enter Phase II, students are expected to have a Master’s, a German Diplom or an equivalent degree. Current BMS Phase I students are required to pass the BMS Qualifying Exam. In addition, all Phase II students must satisfy the usual admission requirements for entry to the PhD program of the Berlin universities. University regu- lations can be downloaded here: . It is not necessary to wait until you have completed your degree before you submit your application, but you must have completed your degree by the time you start at the BMS. For example, if you are scheduled to obtain your Bachelor’s degree by 1 October 2018, you may apply for Phase I even though you hold no degree at the time of application. If you are pursuing a Master’s degree that will be completed before October 2018, you must apply for Phase II of the BMS PhD Program. The result of all applications submitted by 1 December will be decided by mid-March.

What students are saying

    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.
