  1. Hi! I am currently a senior studying Music with a discipline in Voice Performance and am pursuing Speech-Language Pathology as my Graduate Degree path. I have started the process of gaining experience/education (shadowing with a faculty member of the SLP department who specializes in treating vocal disorders at my University's clinic, reaching out to local ENT offices for further shadowing opportunities, attending webinars, reading published research papers) to help get myself into this track as quickly as possible. I am also preparing myself to take the necessary post-grad leveling/transition courses necessary to supplement missing coursework. That being said, it is safe to say that my efforts have not had enough time in development to make me a competitive grad school applicant for this upcoming academic year (2022-23) or even the next, realistically. One thing I did intend to do when entering college, however, was travel abroad post-undergrad (Gap Year) for internship/work experience to better help prepare me for the field I was going into for Grad School and I believe this is still a viable option with SLP in mind! I was wondering if anyone on the forum is aware of any international/abroad opportunities such as teaching/clinical jobs, unpaid/paid internships or anything of that nature that would aid a student in my position in the process of strengthening their experience to help them become more competitive come application time? Whether from your own experience with any of these opportunities or the experience of another, I would be grateful for any and all possible feedback on this topic as this is all still rather new to me but I am trying to explore as many options as I can! Side Note: Only because this info could be relevant to the topic of international work, I do have fluency in English/Spanish, have taken courses in Italian/German and am planning to begin learning Mandarin at the start of 2022. Again, thank you for any advice/assistance you can offer with this topic! :)))
  2. I'm thinking about applying for grad programs outside of the US. Has anyone had experiences or sucess with this? What are some good programs to consider?
  3. By the time I had the idea to apply to graduate programs abroad, I had already applied to 6 schools in the states and was exhausted by the application process. I couldn't choose my top choice school due to the price tag scaring me, and it scared me enough to accept a seat at the cheapest school (also the coldest and farthest drive). I have already lived and worked abroad during my gap years, so I don't know why this idea never came to mind! Essentially my question is: Is it common to transfer graduate programs after a year or a semester? Going to another anglophone country that is recognized by ASHA (Ireland, UK, Australia, NZ) is an an idea I suddenly can't get out of my brain. It could be because COVID has me missing traveling and living abroad, but still. Do you know if the credits will transfer? Also, although ASHA recognizes it, will there be an issue get a masters degree in one of those countries then returning to the US for work? Someone tell me to stop dreaming or to go for it! Thanks for reading. :)

  5. Hi everyone! I'm curious to know if any Americans on here have decided to pursue doctoral studies in clinical psychology in the UK. If so, I'd love to hear more about your story (Were you able to practice in the UK afterward? Did you decide to go back to the US to practice instead? Did you have issues with either of those two routes work eligibility-wise? Etc.). Since this tends to be more of a unique case, "Americans hoping to study/practice clinical psychology in the UK" turns up some pretty murky Internet search results, so I'd love some insight. ?
  6. I am an international student (American) starting my MSc in physics at ETH in Zurich this autumn. I've done a lot of research on the internet looking for funding and have come up with nil. I tried applying for federal (US government) loans but ETH is not listed as one of the eligible schools. I contacted one of the professors in the department and they said they cant take employees without at least a masters. I looked into being a teaching assistant but I cant apply until after the first semester (and I do not speak a terrible amount of German, but I will be learning over the summer). I was hoping to get some other ideas for funding. I did not get the ESOP and the financial aid office said they only offer scholarships to students who already have a scholarship from their home country. I contacted my school and I missed alot of the deadlines for scholarships for studying abroad :(. Are there any international students studying in Switzerland (or who have) that could offer their experience or ideas? Thanks!
  7. Hello all, A bit more of a non-traditional background here. I was an econ 'math-light' major in undergrad. Started to get interested in statistics after a year long course in econometrics my senior year (lower level - no prerequisites in multivariable calc or linear algebra if you can believe it...). I didn't feel overly satisfied with continuing on a finance track as a profession, and decided to jump into the maths after I graduated. Over the past year plus I have been working from the ground up taking courses in mathematics, statistics, and computer science, and have loved everything I've taken. I also (hope) I've done relatively well in these courses, but unfortunately no matter what I do I cannot seem to get my GRE score up... It seems silly to me that I can take these courses and do well, but somehow struggle with high school maths ?(...and I have done loads of studying, tutoring, and the like in an attempt to pick these scores up). I will certainly be applying abroad to programs that do not require GRE scores. (Please excuse the slightly bitter rant to follow). It does seem a little bit odd that programs across the globe all require around the same basic coursework, but largely only US schools require the GRE. This makes sense to me for the obvious reason of sifting through piles of applications, and for the purposes of having a standard means to equate applicants who come from less familiar universities, but does a high GRE score really translate into an ability to succeed in the masters level? I guess I'm holding onto a prayer that my (super) low GRE scores could be overlooked given what seems like a pretty odd mismatch between my scores and my academic performance? I should also note also that my SAT scores were awful as well, but I don't think that really impeded my performance in undergraduate level mathematics... Am I praying too hard here, or am I just out of reach for US schools (or for that matter am I out of reach for all the schools I listed)? Are there schools that would better fit my profile? Any and all advice is greatly appreciated! Sorry for the essay..

  8. Hi! I'm interested in applying to Masters of Marketing and/or Masters of Management (Marketing) programs. I was wondering if anyone has completed either the Masters of Marketing at Trinity College Dublin or Masters of Management (Marketing) at University of Melbourne? If anyone has partaken in either can you let me know your experience? Did you find that it was easy to acquire work once back in the U.S.? Where did you go to search for scholarships to fund your studies? If you have any other recommendations for schools I should apply to that offer these programs please let me know. Thank you for your help!

  10. Hello. I am currently pursuing a degree in biology here in the U.S. and have a cumulative GPA of 3.7 (this is my last year). I have been looking at various MSc degrees abroad (e.g. Germany, Belgium, Austria, Norway, and Russia). I'm still trying to figure out which program to pursue. I want to focus on water resources, oceanography, limnology, fisheries, marine science/bio, environmental engineering, or something along those lines. Right now I'm leaning towards Belgium, Austria, or Norway and spend a year in Russia before I begin my studies to teach English and learn Russian (I am fascinated with Russia). I would like to know how easy it is to be accepted in European programs, specifically at BOKU in Vienna, UIT in Tromso, University of Oslo, and the University of Antwerp (also Gent and Brussel). Also, how are these programs viewed here in the U.S.? Will I have equal job opportunities with a master's degree abroad? Thank you very much.
  11. Hi everyone, I have a BA (2:1) in English and and MA (Merit) in Classics and Ancient History from 2 different universities in the UK. After completing my MA I joined the business world and have been out of academia since 2013- so 3 years. I would like to return to university and do a PhD in Literature, but not in the UK; rather, in Europe. I've had a look at the PhD Portal website, and there are some universities abroad that offer courses in English, but I'm concerned about the procedure. Did any of you apply to do a humanities related PhD abroad and if so, how did you find it? How do I go about my application- i.e. would I have to contact potential supervisors like you do in the UK? Are my chances of doing a PhD ruined owing to the fact that I've been working in the past 3 years? Any advice would be welcome! Thanks x
  12. Does anyone know of any audiology programs that let you complete coursework abroad? I know there is a demand for audiologists in third world countries but does anyone know of any programs that have audiology volunteer in other countries (including developed countries)? I'm currently trying to decide which schools to apply to and being able to apply my knowledge and help individuals in need is a big factor for me. Thanks for any help!
  13. All, I have graduated with a BS. in Computer Engineering, and have 1 year of grad school in Electrical Engineering under my belt. I withdrew this past year because I didn't have the finances to continue (working part time, company not helping and paying for tuition wasn't cutting it) My idea now is to go to school in the EU, and switch up my degree program a little bit. After working in a cubicle the last few years I think that I'm not suited to be a conventional EE and want to get into the management side of things. I have been looking for dual Masters degres in engineering and business, but can't find too many. I found http://www.mastersportal.eu/studies/24106/electronics-electrical-engineering-management.html which seems great, but the international tuition would run me about 30G. Does anyone know of other combined masters programs that are in English? I have been looking in Germany (Cheap/Free tuition) but haven't found any similar degree programs in English, only German, English split. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated!
  14. A few years ago I left a top20 biomedical science PhD program in the US after two years of training. Most of the labs w/ funding in my research area left the school, so there were more students than available mentors. When I left, ¾ of the students in my research area did not have a lab at the end of our 2nd year. I also did not really like the area I was living in or the institution, so I decided to cut my losses and leave the program. I left before my prelim and I was so burnt out at the time I did not try to get a masters degree (would have had to find lab to fund me and stay there several months to write and defend it). I have several years of full-time lab experience before and after my time in graduate school. Anyways, I am looking at my options to enroll in a biomedical doctoral program again. I have defined research interests now and I know what I need from a mentor and lab. Considering these things facts and my prior two years of graduate coursework, I am starting to think about potentially pursing the degree abroad. From my limited knowledge the European and Canadian systems in general have less course work and you have a lab at the time you matriculate into the program. Based on my background and experiences, I think that this system may be a better option for me, as I could almost immediately start working on my project. Hence, I would likely graduate faster. Can anyone comment more on these systems? I know a couple people that completed their degrees in Europe, but they all graduated more than 10 years ago. I have never heard of any Americans going abroad to complete their degrees, except the NIH programs in Britain and Sweden. Is it even possible for Americans to apply directly to programs abroad? If it possible, how flexible are they on the master’s degree requirement that most programs I think have? I think that the schools w/ agreements w/ NIH, wave this requirement for the Americans in the programs. Do most schools do this for people w/ a lot of research experience?
