  1. Hello everyone, I am planning to apply for the global history MA program at Freie Universität Berlin. I have been reading very mixed reviews on the program over the internet. It will be great if someone who is/was a student of the program could share their reviews and opinions about the program. Others who are also familiar with the program are welcome to share their views. I have graduated from an Indian University (University of Delhi). It will be really helpful if there is someone from the same university or another Indian graduate (from any university) who had appllied to germany, explain the application procedure to FU and give me the details/requirements on certified copies that needs to be provided to them (especially on who can certify copies in India). Thank you, Jacob Thomas
  2. The application period opens today. I am planning to apply for North American Studies and potentially English Studies there. I just want to study literature, history, and critical theory. Does anyone have any experience with the process? It looks like GPA is all that matters, but I am nervous about actually getting accepted. Any clue what GPA you generally need to get in? I have a 3.6 from a University of California school. Anyone else planning on going to Berlin for school this October?
  3. Hi Everyone, I have an urgent question. I have just been admitted to the Hertie School of Governance for their Executive Master of Public Administration (EMPA) program. This is basically a flexible track program which you can finish between 1-5 years. It is meant for working professionals (avg. student experience 10 years) who are in their mid-career and want further education, skills or interaction in their fields to progress. The actual course attendance is only 43 days with compulsory and elective courses along with skills training workshops. Hence it is meant for people who are working and can take the course at the same time. My dilemma is that I am a Marketing and Brands professional (6 years of experience) and based out of Dubai, U.A.E. I want to switch my field towards public administration, governmental affairs, NGOs, international development and sustainability. However, I will leave my job and move to Berlin for one year (opting for the 1 year track) and work part time on a student visa. I have tried very hard to find student reviews on this program, however I can't find any. Can anyone help me with the below who has attended or knows of the program? 1. Is the program structure good and will it help me learn a different skill set in order to switch my field? 2. What do you think of the program and the school? 3. Will I be able to find a job in the public / semi-public / consultancy sector with no knowledge of German? Of course I plan to take intensive classes to learn the language, but given that German is a difficult language for someone from my background, I know I would only be able to learn the basics in one year and would have to look for a job within that time on a student visa. Thank you for any help or answers in advance. Best Regards, A Hopeful Executive MPA Student
  4. Hey all! I applied for the MPP program on October 1st and am (im)patiently awaiting an answer from Hertie, as this is by far my top choice. I know it's really early in the season, but has anyone else applied yet? So curious when we'll start getting responses!
  5. Hey everybody,I had applied to a few schools across Europe for my master's Degree and have received offers from the following schools in the aforementioned disciplines. Master's in International Security @ Paris School of International Affairs, Sciences Po (Awaiting Scholarship Information) Master's in International Affairs @ Hertie School Of Governance, Berlin (Scholarship request rejected) I would really appreciate if you guys can provide my some inputs/insight that can help me make an informed decision at the earliest.
  6. Has anyone else been accepted to and decided on the Hertie School of Governance? I've sent in my tuition deposit and all that so now I'm looking into housing ... and eek! Housing is difficult to come by in Berlin, as everyone warned me. There's these sites like SpotaHome and Wunderflats and others but I feel like they could totally be scams? Anyone else exploring options? Anyone out there at all?
  7. I applied to DAAD's Public Policy and Good Governance Scholarship for Developing Countries. Lately, this program has been renamed as DAAD Helmut Schmidt Program. I applied to two schools- Hertie School of Governance in Berlin and University of Osnabruck. While I have been accepted to both programs, DAAD is only willing to fund me for Osnabruck. Hertie, on the other hand, has offered me a tution fee waiver of 50%. So, I'm caught between the two choices- have an absolute free ride to Osnabruck's Masters in Democratic Governance and Civil Society program. DAAD offers a generous monthly stipend besides contributing towards travel, and health insurance. Tuition fee and semester fee is also paid in full. Hertie's program is however much more reputed and they have connections with elite institutions such as Science Po, LSE, Columbia. Hertie's program has a rather professional orientation compared to Osnabruck's focus on political theory. However, for Hertie, I will have to incur substantial debt to meet my living expenses and pay tuition. After 50% waiver, I will still have to pay € 16000. As for my future plan, I want to do PhD in PolSci at reputable US schools such as NYU or Chicago. I applied to these schools only as test cases without putting in my best effort for the personal essay, recommendation letters, standardized exams etc. I'm afraid by attending a rather average school (Osnabruck's) on full funding might not work out in the long run when I apply for a PhD.
  8. Hi everybody! I was offered a PhD position in Berlin at the Charité and wanted to know if anybody made some previous experience with a PhD in Berlin or working at the Charité? I know it's Europe's largest University clinic and said to have a good reputation, so I was wondering if this is true or if anybody thinks different? And what can I expect from living in Berlin and doing a PhD? At the beginning I was super convinced to do a PhD after finishing my master studies, but now, as I talked to many people, starting a normal job after graduating seems more popular. They claimed it gets more and more difficult to find a job with a PhD later on. What are your opinions on that? I know in the end I have to know what I want and what my aim is, but I'm still curious about other opinions. Maybe someone mentions a good point that helps me with my decision, as I was also offered a normal job as a Technical Assistant in my hometown. Thanks for your help!
  9. So, I'm in the process of applying via uni-assist for a German Master's program which requires both a certified copy of my high school transcripts & a certified copy of my high school diploma as verification of secondary school. After contacting my high school, they informed me that it is not possible to obtain a copy of my diploma, just the transcripts. Does anyone know where I might be able to have my high school diploma copied & notarized? (That would be reletively quick & not expensive) Thanks, Katie
