Online Application Tool

The GraduateCenterLMU provides the LMU doctoral programs with an online application tool for recruiting doctoral candidates and, where applicable, other participants. This tool creates the basis for an internationally accessible, transparent application process which complies with consistent quality standards. It is currently used by approximately 30 doctoral programs.

The GraduateCenterLMU liaises with those responsible for the respective programs and adjusts the basic configurations of the tool to the individual requirements of the doctoral program in question.
