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. There, you may find out if you have been invited to an interview or not by searching for your unique application number. You should have all received these numbers 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.

If you find your number on the schedule, the date and time in the cells 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.

We will only conduct online interviews. 

The interview method is teleconference via Zoom. 

Please read the instructions below: 

Zoom Interviews

Successful applicants will receive a separate email with the necessary access data. 

Interviews will last 10 (ten) minutes. 

Please download Zoom on your device at least a day 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 30 min. Should this be the case, we thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.

Please test your internet connection and your technical devices (video and audio) via Zoom in advance and use headphones (if possible) to reach the best possible transmission quality. 

If you cannot make it to the interview, please send an e-mail to study(at) at least three days prior to the interview. 

Interview Schedules 

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

Please note: 

  • If you have more than one applicant number, please search for all numbers. If you are invited for an interview, only the number that was used for the interview counts for the rest of the application round.

If your applicant number appears on the list below, it means that you did not make it to the interview round. Keep in mind that our application process is highly competitive and only a few make it to the next round, so you should not take this rejection as a critique of your skills or creativity. The Cologne Game Lab appreciates the time and effort you put into the aptitude test and wishes you all the best in your future endeavors.
