Prospective Students

How to apply

Online System

An application to the Bucerius International Exchange Program consists of two steps.

1. Nomination

A student's home university must complete an online nomination form and confirm that she/he has been selected to apply for the International Exchange Program at Bucerius. Nominations are due by April 1.

2. Application

Following nomination by their home university, students will receive login credentials for an online system. Applicants will be asked to complete a form and upload various materials (detailed below) by April 15.

Applicants will be asked to upload the following items:

  1. A brief statement of purpose (one to two pages explaining areas of special interest, reason for wanting to study at Bucerius, previous international experience, etc.)

  2. A transcript of grades (in English or German) from applicant's current university, including a description of the grading system and, if possible, class rank

  3. Proof of English language proficiency

  4. One passport-sized photo to be used for a student directory and ID card

Having completed the online portion, applicants will be asked to submit an official transcript of grades (in English or accompanied by a certified translation into English) from their current or most recent university. If a university issues official transcripts electronically (i.e. through an online transcript ordering service, such as eScrip-Safe), these can be sent directly to the following email address: sabrina.henning(at)

An application is not complete until an official transcript meeting the aforementioned criteria has been received by Bucerius Law School.

2016 Application Deadline Passed

The application deadline for the 2016 program has passed; information about the 2017 program will be made available in January.
