To be considered for admission to the Master Programme ‘European and European Legal Studies’ you are required to invite two professors or other persons to act as referees supporting your application and to complete an online application. If you wish to apply for a scholarship brokered by the Foundation Europa-Kolleg Hamburg, two additional referees shall be named.

The closing date for your application for admission in the winter semester 2017/18 is 15 March, 2017. This year we will also offer an early admissions period, for a limited number of applicants seeking an earlier decision (for details, see “deadlines” below). The application deadline for early admissions is 31 January, 2017.

Before you start the application process, please be sure to carefully read the instructions.
