When is the DAAD application deadline?

At TU Berlin it is August 31st of the year BEFORE you intend to start the UM course. For further information see here.

Which documents do I need to send?

  • Documents which DAAD requires can be found on our checklist and on the DAAD website (under 'Application Procedure'). You can send simple copies of your awarded academic degree, academic transcript and school leaving certificate. If you are selected you will then be required to forward certified copies of those documents.

Can I apply online?

Yes, the interactive Urban Management Application form can be downloaded here. The DAAD Application form and supporting documentation can be attached to this UM Application form and emailed to:

info[at]urbanmanagement.tu-berlin.de

OR, in case you are sending your application as hard copy by post, the following address applies:

Technische Universität Berlin
Urban Management Program
Sekr. HBS 5
Hardenbergstraße 16-18
D-10623 Berlin

My graduate studies were in English, do I need to provide a TOEFL test?

I can't provide a TOEFL/IELTS test result until the deadline. Can I still apply?

Please submit your application with a note saying the test result will follow. We need the result, at the latest, by October 31st of the year BEFORE you intend to start the UM course.

Is there any special format for reference letters?

Reference letters should be written on paper with an official letterhead, a recent date, be hand-signed and bear an official stamp. DAAD requires one academic and one professional letter of reference. This distinction is not required for the Urban Management Course.

When will the results be announced?

The results will be announced around middle of February of the year you intend to start the UM course.

Should I apply for other scholarships at the same time?

Competition for a DAAD scholarship for a postgraduate course with relevance to developing countries is very fierce and DAAD funding is only available for three places in the Urban Management Course. Please check other funding possibilities (there is a selection on our website) and apply for the UM course at the same time. TU Berlin does not itself offer scholarship programs.
