Research Master in Fluid Dynamics (former "VKI Diploma Course") 2023 - 2024


Thank you for your interest in the VKI Research Master in Fluid Dynamics and welcome to the application page.

The present web procedure allows you to submit your application in a sequence of steps. Each time you complete a step, press 'submit' and the information will be saved on the web server of VKI.

After completing and submitting this starting page your application is initiated and you will receive an e-mail with a username (your e-mail address) and password, before being introduced to the next step. With this username and password you can login to your application at any time and continue filling it in, starting from the last saved status.

Once you have filled in all the required fields, you will receive an e-mail with a PDF of your application. At this stage you can no longer modify the application, but you can still login and view its status, or download the pdf version.

From that point on, you will receive regular updates of the status of your application.


Recommendations by three of your current professors (or supervisors) are required.
You will be asked to fill in their names and e-mail addresses in the appropriate place on the application form.
The system will send an e-mail to them asking for the recommendation.
Once all three recommendations have been received, you will receive an e-mail from VKI and the actual evaluation of your application will start.


VKI offers fellowships to qualified candidates from countries participating in the funding of VKI(*) and new NATO member countries(**), and no tuition fee applies.
For candidates from other countries, see the details inside the application document.
