  1. Is anyone else waiting for Erasmus Mundus application results? What programme/s did you apply to? How have you been handling the wait? Has anyone been accepted/waitlisted/rejected already? Since there are no Erasmus Mundus 2019 threads, let's talk!
  2. College: IIT ( ranked among top 3 in India ) GPA: 7.8/10 ( 3.12 on a scale of 4 ) BSc in Maths ( 2021 graduate ) Minors in Machine Learning: Courses - Data structure algorithms (B grade), Intro to Machine Learning ( A grade ), Bayesian ML (A grade) Minors GPA: 9.2/10 (3.68 on a scale of 4) GPA in last three semesters (out of 8 sems) : 9.3 (3.72), 9.5 (3.8), 9.2 (3.68) I am confident that I can get a good score in GRE and TOEFL which I will give this year. I also have perfect grades in CS and Economics elective courses ( Database systems, Cryptology, Financial economics, Intro to economics) My GPA is low mostly because of compulsory abstract math courses which I hated and few stats courses offered by my maths department I don't have any publications but I have done some research projects in my courses related to machine learning. I will be starting my job as a data scientist in a startup in the next few weeks but I want to pursue higher studies abroad. What different programmes can I consider in the US and outside US (Canada, Europe, Singapore, Japan)? I don't think I have any chance in any of the top 25 universities. I am searching for Data Science programmes or CS or Statistics programmes with the freedom to choose core ML electives and good career opportunities. Will my good GPA in the last few semesters or minors in ML give me an advantage in some universities? Also, none of my professors knows me personally but I might be able to get one academic LoR and one recommendation from my corporate internship.
  3. Hello everyone, I have a BSc in biochemistry and am looking for a MSc program in europe. I got a job in neuroscience research for a public institution right after graduation and it was then when I decided I wanted to go to industry rather than academia. I have several interests which are perhaps not 100% related to my bachelor's. Some of these are: Engineering (programming, AI, ML, nanotech, robotics) Design (creating things for practical use, creative process) Pharma (Drug pathways/delivery) Finance (project management) Biochem (neuro, lab work, cancer, ageing) I know it is impossible to combine all my interests together and find the perfect occupation for me, but I'm looking for a career that has at least a couple of these elements and has a great salary. Some of the things I have been looking at are unemployment rates, projected field growth, avg salary, chances of progressing (promotions), cool recent/ongoing discoveries in the field, etc. Some of the MSc I have been considering so far are: Biomedical Engineering Materials Science Drug Discovery Pharmacological Research Biomedicine Biotechnology I would truly appreciate receiving your opinions regarding which fields are the best for me, as well as suggestions on specific MSc programs that would encompass my interests and preferences. Thank you very much!
  4. Hi, I was recently admitted to the MPP at Sciences Po in the Digital, New Technology and Public Policy stream. Now I had applied to the course because I really liked the courses listed on the website, the policy lab component, and of course, Paris. However, I have been reading up on this forum about the University, and that has left a bittersweet taste. I do not speak French, but the course I am accepted to is taught entirely in English. From the posts on the Forum, I feel that the university's career services aren't too friendly for the international students, the administration is disorganized and the job scenario is not uplifting, even though the teaching is quite good. These posts are from a few years ago, though. I have admits from a few US universities (still waiting on the big names). Since the tuition at Sciences Po is much lower, and there's a bunch of scholarships available from our government to students studying in France, I am conflicted. Anybody on the Forum with information/opinions on the university? It's like a black box at the moment, with any info I have only coming from the School's website.
  5. 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?
  6. 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. :)
  7. Hello all! Was surprised that I couldn't find an existing discussion about the Humanity in Action fellowship...there's also very little information about the program online. Any other applicants for this cycle? I applied with a preference for all but the Atlanta program. This was my second time applying for HIA...hoping for a different result this time around, or at least an interview!
  8. Does anyone know the process for applying to European masters programs? Unfortunately lack of funding in the US has forced me to look for other options. From the websites of some institutions I've looked at it seems like unlike the US you don't reach out to professors before applying, you just apply like we did in undergrad? Thanks.
  9. A PhD by publication is more common in Europe. I am expecting a few first authored publication this year in decent journals, but I am not sure of the value of this. Thanks!
  10. Hi, my name is Yanish Patwari and I am from India. I have received the following offers: 1. ESADE - Msc Marketing Management 2. ESCP - Msc in Marketing & Creativity I am confused and need help to chose the right college. Background: I have completed a bachelor in commerce. Post which i have worked in a research and consultancy firm. Currently i am working in my family business and this is the place where i have gained majority of my experience in marketing. I have a strong academic background. My GMAT score stands at 710. Short term goal - Secure a job in a marketing role in an FMCG organization Long term goal - Start something of my own, either in India or Outside Please help
  11. I got into SAIS but was rejected by their IDEV program. Tufts offered me their Master of Law and Diplomacy program. I also got into the MA program at the Graduate Institute, Geneva. I am leaning toward SAIS because they have a really good China Studies program but the tuition is extremely expensive. I am also a bit worried about their requirement on economic classes since I can't deal with numbers/graphs. My goal is to have a PhD in IR or work in international organizations after my MA. IHEID fits my research interest and has a lot of connections with different organizations, but I'm not sure whether getting a master's in Europe will hurt my chances of coming back to the States for a PhD? Also, IHEID is less known compared to JHU, so as a non-EU citizen, will it be hard for me to find jobs that sponsors a working visa in the field, or finding a job back to the States/Asia? I am a Chinese student attending an undergraduate program in the US. If there's anyone who was also accepted by/has previously attended those programs, or have knowledge about them, please comment with your suggestions. I would really appreciate it. Gracias~
  12. Can anyone tell me which EU universities offer masters in economics with scholarships that cover tuition and living expenses? I do not want to apply to Britain universities and I know about Bonn, CEMEFI, Carlos, BI, and Tinbergen. I applied them all.
  13. Hello everyone, I have been having trouble lately matching my profile with potential MS ECE programs and would greatly appreciate it if anyone could help me with shortlisting potential MS programs to apply to. I aim to apply mostly to universities in Canada and Europe, basically anywhere but the US (as I won't be able to take the GRE in time). I am also mainly looking for research/thesis based degrees, and preferably RA/TA funded degrees. My profile: Undergrad: B.Sc. ECE from an unknown institution internationally, but known regionally and undoubtedly one of the best nationally, Score: 83%. Research Interest: Electromagnetics and optics. IELTS: 9. Publications: 1 Accepted international conference paper in my field of interest. Research Experience: A few undergrad RA experiences/internships (summer internships during undergrad). I have been working as an RA for the last few months, potentially a couple more publications are in the works. Which Canadian/European/Australian/Asian universities can I target with this profile for example for a funded research based MSc. degree? I don't want to waste time and money applying to prestigious institutions where I have no chance, so I would like to know where my 'level' is so to speak. I am an EU citizen if that makes any difference. Would really appreciate any feedback, please let me know if any extra info is needed. TIA .
  14. Hello, I have a question that may be too specific but hopefully someone out there has some relevant experience/advice. I am trying to decide what to do as a literature student who would like to eventually complete a PhD in linguistics. Right now I am mostly looking into masters programs as it seems that it would greatly help me to complete a masters before even trying to apply to a PhD, but if someone has a suggestion of a PhD program that requires little background in linguistics, I'm game. Here are my studies so far : B.A. English and French literature at a small liberal arts school in the USA Masters 1 & 2 in comparative literature at the Sorbonne in Paris (all schoolwork in French) -- I will complete my last year of this masters this year. The program I am envisioning doing my PhD in is the Linguistics PhD at McGill, and they have a masters program as well, so I could possibly do one and then the other seamlessly. They do require some preparation in linguistics, so I would probably be referred to their qualifying year. Tuition for that year is about 16000, but once you get into the master, it is funded. I am considering either auditing some linguistics courses this year or doing a full year of classes after the masters in order to give myself some background in linguistics. I feel I need at least a few classes in order to write a good statement of purpose, and I also will need letters of recommendation, and having some linguistics professors would be helpful. There is one program at a French university that looks like it would give me a full course load of introductory classes, it is at the L3 level, so that would be equivalent to re-doing a senior year of a bachelor's program, grade-wise. There are also several masters programs across europe that require little to no preparation in linguistics, and I could alternatively do a masters in Europe and then apply directly to the PhD at McGill. The Masters in europe aren't funded but tuition is free or negligible. I am looking at several universities in Belgium, the Freie University Berlin, and a few universities in France. Does anybody here have experience with McGill and their Qualifying Year, or generally applying to the program? I am worried about it being very expensive if I have to do the qualifying year, which is why I am considering doing a masters elsewhere first. I'm also worried about not having a writing sample in English for the application to McGill (the european masters are fairly easy to get into and don't require writing samples or letters of rec). I'm just feeling very overwhelmed with all the different options across many countries and could use some help/advice. links to programs : McGill : https://www.mcgill.ca/linguistics/graduate/admission Berlin : http://www.geisteswissenschaften.fu-berlin.de/en/izeus/master/bewerbung/Zulassungsvoraussetzungen/index.html Belgium : https://uclouvain.be/en/faculties/fial/selection-et-admission-0.html https://www.programmes.uliege.be/cocoon/20182019/en/formations/condac/P2ULIN01.html https://www.uantwerpen.be/en/faculties/faculty-of-arts/studying-and-education/degree-students/programmes/ France http://www.masterlinguistiquetours.com/Admision.html http://www.univ-tlse2.fr/accueil/formation-insertion/odf-2016-2020/master-linguistique-cognition-communication-licoco--386439.kjsp http://www.u-bordeaux-montaigne.fr/fr/formations/offre-de-formation-2016-2020/master-XB/sciences-du-langage-SCLANG.14/master-sciences-du-langage-program-mna16-216/master-2-theorie-et-description-du-langage-et-des-langages-subprogram-master-2-theorie-et-description-du-langage-et-des-languesnouveau-parcours.html L3 - Bachelor's year : https://formation.univ-paris-diderot.fr/formations/licence-sciences-du-langage
  15. Hello there. I've managed to apply to Schengen universities for this fall semester and I've got accepted, roughly into 2 of the best among them, thanks to this forum and their guidance. Now there is some serious head-scratching going on here as to which of these 2 I should choose. Their CS department of these 2 universities seem to be very close to each other in terms of merit. However, my ultimate objective is to pursue a PhD or possibly get directly admitted to work in one of the north american countries (USA or Canada), preferably in data science field. With that in mind, which of these 2 universities are better for my goals, In terms of recognition among north american companies and universities? Is it possible for an international student to exchange with a reputable north american university or company while studying in either of these universities?
  16. Anyone applying to any masters in Europe this upcoming cycle? I thought we could discuss it here! I’m applying to Science Po and IHEID.
  17. Dear All political scientists, I would love to do a PhD and do research. But, I am seriously worried about my ability to do Ph.D with two reasons. First, my all more than 20 applications have been rejected so far. Most of the applications went to Europe. I did my master in Europe as well. Problem is that my academic transcript of master is around 2.5/4.5 in American way. Of course, I did my best during the master course... Actually, before starting master back then, I did not recognize what research is ever. I had no idea what research question is even. I think that is the reason why my master academic transcript is horrible. And, my un-concrete reasoning of papers might be problematic. This is actually related to second reason.. Second, above all, I am currently working in a research center as visiting researcher. As long as I feel, I am the worst researcher. Sometimes, my supervisor requires me a kind of arrangement of bunch of literature or a review of the literature and then I did it with my best. But, the result of my work was horrible. I did not figure out what main focus is during the work and too much feedback from the supervisor. When the supervisor wants me to tell her what contents a specific journal article has, I do not remember the content although I already read it. Over time, I have been disappointed myself again and again. So, now I feel that it will be difficult to do a phd and further I am worried to get a job after phd. Although I got several interview opportunities from phd applications, that was it. I guess that professors recognized how I am not good applicants during the interview. I love research in political science. But, overtime, I think that loving something does not cause doing well. So, I have to decide whether changing my career or trying continuously. To summarize, why are my all applications rejected? Is this because I am a stupid one? I want human moment from political scientists. Best regards, Research-lover
  18. I have just been accepted to MEME, the Mundus Erasmus Master's Program in Evolutionary Biology (http://www.evobio.eu/), but since I've already accepted an offer from a US program, I wanted to hear if anyone has had research experience in Europe and could give some information about how it is similar to/different from the US. I am still really interested in MEME, but I don't want to make any hasty decisions, so I'd appreciate any responses!
  19. Hello. I applied to joint master degree at IMBRSea (International Master of Science in Marine Biological Resources) program this year + Erasmus Mundus scholarship. A few days ago I got a notification of academic acceptance e-mail from them. I was accepted into the program BUT not awarded the scholarship. However, they accept me into the self funding basis and awarded partial tuition fee waiver. I still got 12 days until the deadline of confirmation for whether I'll take the offer or not. Well, is there any possibility to secure a funding or grant for less than 2 weeks? To be honest I am VERY new to this and a bit skeptical Also, for the very least scenario, I was thinking about a loan. I've searched for Erasmus+ Master Degree Loan and my university is not listed on the scheme (I am enrolling into Ghent University, Belgium) and a bit confused of what to do. Is it worth it to continue? Is it better to let this go and apply to other universities? Any thoughts, opinion, critic, will be appreciated!
  20. I am from India and I have taken about 70 courses in my bachelors. Do I have to fill the details about every one of them to complete my masters application? I am applying for Master of Science in Robotics, System and Control.
  21. What does an American need grade wise to get into European universities(nothing big like cambridge, ecole, or delft), I want to go into business(international business, management, etc.). what would I need for AP scores, SAT/ACT, normal class credits, and languages? I am in my sophomore year, taking Algebra 2 and AP European History.
  22. Hi! I have just applied to a few programs and I'm just looking for some advice to see if I have a shot I guess. Also looking for any schools in Europe besides University College London that have what I'm looking for. A little background on me, I got my Bachelor of Science Interior Design at Drexel University in Philly with a minor in Art History. I graduated with a 3.3 GPA and a pretty solid portfolio (my strong suit is definitely my renderings). For the past 2 years I have been teaching at the Community College of Philadelphia as an adjunct professor teaching AutoCAD and Intro to Architecture, Design and Construction. I kind of fell into teaching but absolutely love it and love the flexibility and freedom it gives me to be creative in my spare time. Obviously with this, I need to get my masters to continue teaching at the collegiate level. My goal is to go into Exhibit and Installation design so I have applied to a variety of different programs involving this field. Mostly, I want to get more digital design knowledge (I currently am fluent in CAD, Revit, Illustrator, InDesign and Photoshop, Laser Cutting and a little sketchup) but I want to learn more about 3D printing, CNC Routing which entails Rhino and 3DS Max. Mostly, I am curious if I have a shot at some of these reach schools of mine. But also if anyone has any insight into some more European Schools that have what I'm looking for it would be greatly appreciated. 1. UCLA 2. California College of the Arts 3. Portland State University 4. Pratt Institute 5. WashU 6. UCL ????? Thinking about: 1. Sandberg Institute (Amsterdam) - Studio for Immediate Spaces 2. University of Applied Science Europe (Berlin) - Media Spaces 3. London South Bank University - Digital Architecture and Robotics 4. Piet Zwart Institute (Rotterdam) - Interior Architecture THANKS FOR READING & HELPING!
  23. What are the best MA History programs in Europe, taught in English ?
  24. Hello all, I am a M.A. student in musicology. I will apply to Individual PhD's in Europe (particularly Germany) for Fall semester 2018, but I couldn't find an answer on the internet for one particular question. My PhD project focuses on computer music and posthumanism. So, I am looking for a supervisor in both musicology and philosophy fields. I wonder if I find a supervisor in the philosophy department, would I face an obstacle when I am registering to the university. It would be a nonconsecutive PhD and I thought maybe they'll want a diploma in the same field. I want to know what is the standart expectation of the universities and learn if this change in the field is possible. Thank you very much.
  25. I plan to enter an anthro graduate school program (MA+PhD) in September 2018, which means I have something of a ‘gap year situation’ ahead of me [not in a strict sense, as I’ve been working for a number of years now]. I want to use this unstructured time ahead the best way I can. If you were in my position, how would you spend these spare 12 months before grad school officially begins? How would you prepare for what’s ahead, what would you focus on? It goes without saying that I have already given these questions a lot of careful consideration, but I’m very curious to learn how others would approach this topic; especially, current PhD candidates, postdocs, and lecturers/professors. Knowing what you now know, if you could go back, how would you spend a spare year like that? Some background: My field is social/cultural anthropology. My ultimate goal (grad school and beyond) is to prepare a CV and a research portfolio, which will aid me in launching an academic career in Europe. I have a BA in anthropology and an unrelated MA, I currently freelance (unrelated field); I have plenty of spare time, and can arrange my schedule in whatever way I see fit. I live in a mid-size European city (not a capital); can’t move anywhere this year, but can likely do some limited traveling. There’s a small anthropology department here, but I’m not affiliated with it, and never was. My degree is from the US. I can speak the local language fairly well. The grad school (next year) will be in a different county, and learning the new language will be one of my key objectives this year. The language of instruction will be English, however. Note: Not sure if I made this clear, but I’m not looking for suggestions such as “travel for fun,” or “get a new hobby.” I want to use these 12 months in the most productive way possible.
