If you would like to be accepted as a junior student at the University of Potsdam, you will need to take part in a selection process. You will find forms and guidance for the application here.
Prospective junior studies may apply to begin studying in the winter semester only. The application process is in two stages. In the first stage, we seek to find out what motivates you to become a junior student. You also need an expert assessment from a teacher who knows you from class and teaches a subject related to your desired junior studies discipline. In addition, we need permission from your parents and your school. Submit the following documents to the University of Potsdam between May 1 and May 31:
The second stage of the selection process consists of an interview with each applicant, a University of Potsdam lecturer, and an advisor from the Central Student Advisory Service.
If the University of Potsdam and your school agree that you are a good fit, you will be admitted to the Junior Studied Program at the University of Potsdam.
