Dear CGL applicants,

First and foremost, we would like to thank you for your interest in the Cologne Game Lab. We received all your documents, which were duly examined by our Aptitude Assessment Commission. Now the first phase of our application process is over and it is time for the interview round.

Below this message, you will find tables with the interview schedules. You can find out if you have been invited to an interview or not by searching for your unique applicant number. You should have received this number per email after submitting the application form on our website. To make the search easier, you can press Ctrl+F in Windows or Command+F in Mac. This will open a search field on your browser where you can type in your number. In case the tables are not probably displayed on your device, you can download it as a PDF file.

If you find your number on the schedule, the date and time next to it correspond to your personal interview slot. If your number is not on the schedule, it will appear on a list at the bottom of this page, which contains the applicant numbers of those who are not invited to an interview.

Interviews will last 10 (ten) minutes. There are two interview modalities: Skype and on-location. Please read the instructions concerning each modality provided below. Those who live in Germany or in a country close to Cologne (e.g. The Netherlands, Belgium) are automatically invited to an on-location interview. International applicants (excepting the above-mentioned cases) are automatically invited to a Skype interview.

If you cannot make it to the interview, please inform our student counselor Federico Alvarez at fa (at)

On-Location Interviews

Candidates invited to an on-location interview should come to our campus on Schanzenstraße 28 (2nd floor) in Köln-Mülheim.

We will prepare a waiting area for you to pass the time before the interview and our interviewers will call you at the designated hour. Make sure to be there on time, but please be aware that there could be a slight delay. Should this be the case, we thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

Skype Interviews

Please add CGL’s account (colognegamelab) to your Skype contacts at least a week prior to your interview.

Make sure that your account enables us to clearly identify your full name. Please be available online ten minutes prior to your scheduled time. We will do our best to call you just in time. However, be aware that there could be a delay of up to one hour. Should this be the case, we thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

Please let us know in case you prefer an interview on location.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Federico Alvarez at fa (at)

Interview Schedules

All times correspond to CEST – Central European Summer Time ( International applicants should take the time difference into account.
