Reference Requirements

You can submit your application irrespective of the fact if your referees have completed the online reference form or not, as the submission does not impede referees access to the application.

Referees must submit their online references by latest 12 November 2014, 23:59 CET (GMT +1). We strongly suggest that you complete the 'general info' and 'references' part of the online application first in order to give your referees enough time to complete the reference online. Furthermore please make sure to contact your referees before completing this part in order to find out if they are available and willing to provide a reference. It is applicant's responsibility to ensure that references reach us on time.

As stated within the online application form we only accept references provided through institutional email accounts.

Only in cases where the referee does not have an institutional email address, i.e. only holds a 'hotmail', 'gmail' etc. account, we ask you to:

1. Complete the form with the available email address.
2. Inform your referee NOT to complete the online form.
3. Ask your referee to send a reference letter on institutional headed paper, signed and stamped as a PDF document to
4. Ask your referee to include your application ID number (7 digits) in the reference letter.
