  • In the first phase, candidates fill out the online application form and attach, where requested, a single PDF file of less than 50MB containing the following documents in the order specified here:
    • Curriculum Vitae (CV), based on the English template from the Europass website

The people writing the recommendation letters can be also marked as referees in the application form. Referees are people who have collaborated with the candidate, which are willing to answer questions about her/him. One of these references should be an academic who has been a teacher or tutor of the candidate; other referees can be from the professional experiences of the candidate. Please note that the referees must be able to communicate in English or German.
