Fast track PhD Options for B.A. students
Freie Universität Berlin offers a fast-track program for highly exceptional B.A. students. To qualify, B.A. students need to provide evidence of an exceptional academic record during the B.A. program with an A grade point average (in German: 1.3 or higher, without any exception), two letters of well-known scholars, and successful completion of an entrance exam as required by the statute for PhD programs at Freie Universität Berlin.
This entrance exam is designed by the examination committee after application; we do not know the details of this exam before the application for admission to the PhD proecedure.
For GEAS, fast-track students should ideally have at least one year of experience living and studying in East Asia and have high-level language skills in one of the respective languages, according to the rules of admission to GEAS.
