5. Frequently asked questions about the application process

How many and for which areas of study are Deutschlandstipendien awarded?

Currently 101 Scholarships could be awarded for the winter semester 2020/21. In addition to the sponsored study programmes listed on our webpage free scholarships are also awarded. Free scholarships are scholarships without any special study programme preferences in respect of the sponsors. Therefore applications are both possible and desired for all study programmes (state of 30th June 2020).

I have already obtained the Deutschlandstipendium in the last winter semester 2019/20 at MLU and I would like to apply again. What should I keep in mind?

For your reapplication please use your login-details from the last year (application period of winter semester 2019/20). For login please use your email-address and password from the last year. If you lost your old password, you can reset it with the function “Reset password” ("Passwort zurücksetzen"). In this way it is possible to use your application details from the last year. Please don’t forget to update your information and documents in the online application portal, in particular the information about your grades and other criteria. If you don’t update your information, it might lead to exclusion of your application.

What are the current application and registration deadlines for a course of study at the MLU?

  • An application for restricted study programmes with Numerus Clausus is possible until 20th August 2020.
  • Enrolment for undergraduate  programmes without restricted access can be made until 15th October 2020  and
  • for Master's programmes without Numerus Clausus up to 30th September 2020.

For foreign applicants who did not receive their university entrance qualification in Germany, the application deadline is 15 July 2020 for both undergraduate programmes and Master's programmes.

The deadlines may vary for individual programmes. Further information can be found here or on the web pages of the admission office of the MLU.

I have not yet been accepted at the MLU nor have I a matriculation number yet. Can I still apply?

Yes, you can apply. In this case please attach a copy of your online registration at the MLU or regarding subjects with restricted access (numers clausus), the confirmation of your submitted application. When filling in the application agreement to apply for the Deutschlandstipendium, please enter your application number instead of a matriculation number.

What do I indicate in my application if I haven’t got a transcript of records yet or the credit points (ECTS) and grades are not listed yet?

If you do not have any credit points (ECTS) and/or grades yet or these are not listed in your transcript of record, please contact your examination office and ask for an overview of your credits. If you cannot find out how many credit points you’ve already achieved there either, please fill in a “0” in the fields “Previously gained credit points (ECTS)” and “Calculation of grading required” in the online application portal and give a brief explanation in the field “Remarks about the application” at the end of your online application.

At the time of application the standard period of study in my degree programme is already less than 2 semesters. Can I still apply?

Yes, you can still apply. The Deutschlandstipendium is usually granted for 2 semesters, but a shorter period is possible, however not for less than 1 semester. Please note that if you successfully end your studies while receiving the scholarship, the funding will end with the announcement of the overall result but at the latest by the end of the second month following the completion of your last examination.

Do I require any expert opinions, reference or recommendation letters to apply?

No, reference and recommendation letters as well as expert opinions will not be considered.

What are the chances of receiving the Deutschlandstipendium?

In principle everybody who achieved or will continue to achieve excellent results at school and/ or university can apply. However, the awarding of the Deutschlandstipendium also depends on how many sponsors support the Germany Scholarship programme at the university and for which areas of study scholarships are available. The total number of scholarships awarded since October 1st 2011 can be found here.
