PhD Program at the International Helmholtz Research School for Diabetes
If you are interested in joining the International Helmholtz Research School for Diabetes and would like to profit from an exceptional international and translational PhD program centered on diabetes research then this is for you.
Applicants require a university Master's degree (MSc or equivalent) including a written Master's research thesis to apply to the International Helmholtz Research School for Diabetes. Applicants still studying for their degree may provide a provisional certificate or bona fide statement from the university, stating the examination marks already obtained. You should receive your degree not later than 6 months after the application deadline. Degrees from countries outside the European Union are subject to a recognition procedure. In addition, a final evaluation is performed by one of the German universities, Technical University Munich or Ludwig Maximilian University, respectively. If you do not hold a Master's degree but think that your degree is an equivalent please contact the research school office. Scanned copies of your certificates and documents can be uploaded as a PDF file (max 3 MB) during the online application.
Proof of English Language Skills
The language of the International Helmholtz Research School for Diabetes is English and for successful participation in the PhD program you need excellent English language skills. A language test for English (TOEFL, IELTS, CAE) is required for all applicants except native English speakers. Alternatively, if your degree was in English you may provide a PDF document from your University in which this is stated.
In case you do not have sufficient time to do a language test for English and your studies were not in English please provide a document from your university stating your English language abilities. Please be reminded that an official English test or a degree in English is highly advantageous. In any case applicants should be able to speak fluently with the reviewers about their research area during the application interview.
