Application Process

Please read carefully what to prepare before you upload your application to the BioMedical Design Fellowship Programme. 


You are required to upload all of the following materials:

  • Your resume or Curriculum Vitae (PDF format) including diploma and permission of leave. See details below.
  • Your application essay (PDF format). See details below.
  • Your video application essay. See details below.

    All application material needs to be in English.

CV –  Diploma – Permission of leave
Your educational history, including institutions names and locations, majors, degrees, and years attended (list your latest experience first). Your CV should be no more than 2 pages. Please merge the CV with a copy of your highest ranking diploma and a permission of leave in case you are employed. There are several free services online to merge PDF files. Just search for “PDF merge”.

Application essay
We request a short, written essay in order to learn more about the person behind the application (minimum font size 11, maximum 1,000 words). We encourage you to share with us your passions, values, and vision for your future when answering the following question:

  • With what skills and experiences can you contribute to the interdisciplinarity of the BioMedical Design programme?
  • What do you think about a need driven approach to innovation?
  • What impact do you expect the BioMedical Design program to have on your career path?

Video Essay
Please answer the following two questions in a video recording that is no more than 2 minutes long:

  • Describe a decision you made that was a failure. What happened and why?
  • How do you network and make new contacts?

Upload the video on YouTube or Vimeo and provide the URL at the bottom of your written essay. If you use a video service such as YouTube to host the clip, we suggest choosing the “unlisted” option, so that only those who have the link can access your recording. Please test the link to ensure the video can be viewed with the URL before submitting it.

Done! – What then?

  • Your application is read by the BioMedical Design staff.
  • Shortlisted candidates will be invited to an assessment process online. The process will be run for invited applicants in groups of 18.

Please notice: If you are invited for the further assessment process you should keep your calendar open for an afternoon workshop on either the 30th of April or 1st of May.
After the workshop a personal interview takes place in the first weeks of May.
Selected candidates for the fellowship will be notified by mail at the end of May.

We know the assessment process is long but we are very thorough in our selection process to be able to set the best teams possible. The curriculum also needs our attention at the same time, that’s why we need to fit in the assessment workshops when we have the necessary employees available.

  • The programme starts early September.

All applicants will receive a personal e-mail if they have been accepted to the programme or not.
