In the interest of maintaining the programme's high standards, the number of participants will be limited to 25.
Prerequisites for participation are a minimum of one year of legal training at a university and a very good command of written and spoken English.
Even though we do not require students to upload language test results during the online application process, we urge students with poor language skills to abstain from applying. Professors will not be able to accommodate language difficulties. Knowledge of German is not a prerequisite.
Online registration is open from 1 November 2023:
Application deadline: 3 April 2024
Applicants will be informed in April whether or not they have been offered a place in the course and a tuition waiver.
Application materials for the MUST programme:
Please upload the following supporting materials as a PDF file during the application procedure:
Please upload a transcript or other detailed official record of all previous exams in legal studies.
Participants currently studying at an educational institution should enclose a transcript of all exams taken to this date. The transcript must be translated into English or German and must explain the grading system. If there is no official translation available, participants can attach an English translation of their own.
In regard to previous higher education, a copy of the results from final exams, translated into English or German, should be enclosed.
2. Curriculum vitae (CV)
Please use the Euro Pass format (http://europass.cedefop.europa.eu), if you do not have your own form.
3. Statement of motivation
Applicants should write a short statement of no more than one computer typed page in English as to why they wish to take part in the summer programme and whether they have previously studied European Union or German law.
4. English language certificate (not mandatory)
You may attach proof that you have successfully completed an English language test (e.g. TOEFL or IELTS). This, however, is not a prerequisite for the application. English native speakers don't need to provide an English language test.
