Application documents

Your application is usually the first step of getting to know you.

This makes it all the more important that you put in your best effort!  


A sound application should include the following documents:

  • Cover Letter
    Convince us that you have the necessary motivation and skills. But always remain truthful, e.g. giving examples to verify your statements is a plus. Take the time to check for spelling and grammar, and avoid using standard sentences. Instead, try to use your very own words.

  • Curriculum Vitae
    Pay attention to: Clarity and completeness. Do not skip or forget anything. Make sure to include all additional skills such as language skills or any other knowledge you have gained (e.g. software), or extra-curricular activities (e.g. internships, holiday jobs, volunteer jobs).

  • Copies of your latest report cards

  • Certificate for the participation in internships, if applicable

  • Certificate for the acquired language skills, if applicable

  • Verification for the participation in volunteer commitments, if applicable

  • any other potential verifications/certificates
