In addition to the general application requirements, applicants to the German Graduate Program must complete the following:

Language Assessment

Once we have received your application and the $75 application fee, the German School will email you the instructions for the Graduate Placement Exam, which will then be sent via regular mail.

Submission of the online assessment must be completed before your application will be reviewed for an admissions decision.

German MA and DML candidates who have already completed their summer of candidacy need not take the online placement exam; however, we reserve the right to require you to take the placement exam again if a significant amount of time has passed since you last attended a German graduate session at Middlebury.

MA in Applied Languages

Students applying to the MA in Applied Languages must provide a Statement of Purpose in language and a CV/résumé in language using this sample template.

Address for Submitting Materials

German School

14 Old Chapel Road

Middlebury College

Middlebury, VT 05753

Note: While we do accept applications for the graduate summer program on a rolling basis, in order to request materials and help students prepare for the visa process, those applying to the summer program followed by the academic year abroad must submit an application by May 1. Applicants for the year abroad must also have a passport that is valid for at least six months after the end date of the program.
