    Please note that accepted upload-file formats are pdf and doc. The documents must be in English or German; otherwise an official translation into English (e.g. of certificates and coursework) must be added.

    Only applications that are complete and submitted electronically by 11:59 PM Central European Time will be considered. Please note that if you have resided in Germany more than 12 months (total) in the last three years, you are not eligible to apply for this LMU-based ITN according to EU regulations and should consider applying with one of the partners. Note that their application deadlines differ and the admissions process at Leeds and KTH is entirely independent.

    Important: upload data files may not exceed 5 MB per file. Please do not use special characters in file names, or upload any encrypted files. If one upload document consists of several pages, the pages have to be merged into one document.
