The Q&As have been scheduled to accommodate different time zones and will cover the same content. Thus, we ask interested students to register for the time that suits them best (no need to register for both sessions).

Please register (with your name, current affiliation, study major/program, and study year) to receive the link and password to the online meeting (registration is possible until the day of the event).

About one week before the orientation, we will start sending the Zoom link and passcode to registered participants. If you do not receive the link automatically, please double-check your spam folder or contact us in case you did not receive any email. Especially students who will graduate from their BA program by March 2024 are invited, but all students interested in the program are welcome.
Please be online on time.

Please refer to the application page and the application FAQ, as well as the introductory videos below, before joining the online Q&A. If you cannot participate in the online orientation and the FAQ does not answer your questions, feel free to contact the JDTS coordinator via info[a]
