Selection and admission

ZEF staff members screen your application for academic qualification, quality and relevance of your research proposal, and recommendations. Promising candidates are interviewed online and their research proposal is checked for potential plagiarism.
This review is usually being completed within three months after the submission of the application. The final decision is being announced in December/ January.


A note on plagiarism

Plagiarism is the use of someone else's (or even your own) work or ideas without acknowledment. Plagiarism can be intentional or unintentional. This type of behavior is intellectually dishonest and violates the ethics of academic professionalism. Shortlisted candidates are obliged to submit a softcopy of their research proposal to perform a plagiarism check.
