BMS PhD Application Guidelines - for all you need to know about applying to the BMS
First download our BMS PhD Application Guidelines and read them thoroughly before beginning the online application process. You will find the answers to your questions in there, or in our FAQs, or here on our website.
Students entering Phase I of the BMS are expected to have a bachelor degree, or equivalent. (Thus, in particular, Berlin mathematics students in their "Hauptstudium" can apply for membership in BMS. For students who are further advanced, part of the Phase I course requirements may be waived.)
For entering Phase II, students are expected to have a master degree, or to pass the BMS Qualifying Exams. (In particular, they thus satisfy the regular admission requirements of the Berlin universities' PhD programs.)
The BMS TOEFL code is 2593. We also accept IELTS.
The academic year is made up of the winter semester and the summer semester. Lectures in the winter semester 2016/17 will start in October 2016 and last until February 2017. Lectures in the summer semester 2017 will start in April 2017 and last until July 2017.
