    Daad fine arts scholarship 2019-2020

    Anyone here apploed for daad fine arts scholarship? Or anyone who avail it?
  3. 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?

    Grad Schools in Germany

    Hello all, Since I could not take GRE exam, I've applied gradschools in Canada. But I have been thinking about some high ranking universities in Germany such as Humboldt and University of Mannheim . I'm interested in work and labor, economic sociology... Besides, I think that I would have limited opportunities to improve my sociological skills in those schools in Germany. You know European PhD programs have different patterns than those schools in USA and Canada. What do you think? Are there anyone could tell about experiences in those schools? Ekinsu
  5. Hi, I just finished my master degree and I'm considering apply for the DAAD short-term research grant hoping that I could research in some German archives. So, I need some advice from those with relevant experiences. According to the DAAD's notice, applicants are required for the confirmations from Doktorvater/-mutter(academic advisor) and the host institution. Following is the exact statement "Letter confirming supervision by an academic adviser in Germany, which refers to the applicant's proposal and confirms that the host institute will provide a workplace" I think this "supervision" means the case in which someone researches in labs, especially in the fields of engineering or natural sciences. But I don't think I would need advice or a workplace while doing my research because most I have to do will be find, read and collect primary sources in the archives. For historical researches, how should I prepare those 'confirmations'?

  7. 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

    DAAD Short-term scholarship 2018

    Hello guys, is there anyone here who applied for the short-term grant of the DAAD (with the deadline on April 2018 ) and who is waiting for the results ?? Do you have any news? Good luck!
  10. 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

  19. Hey all , I need someone who is familiar with DAAD scholarship I need to know more about DAAD scholarship about the preliminary German courses prior to the scholarship , is it funded ? when students take those courses ?

  20. Has anyone used FINTIBA (http://www.fintiba.com) to get blocked account with Sutor bank before? I'm going to Uni in Munich and I was just wondering whether it'd be easy to withdraw the money from it because I could not find a branch of Sutor Bank in Munich.
  21. 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
  22. Hi! I'm looking for information on scholarships and masters programs in Germany, Switzerland, or Austria. I want to study Ecology/Conservation Biology/Natural History. Kind of a specific request but if anyone has any information at all, I would be much obliged! I don't speak German fluently yet so I need to find a program that teaches in English, which from the research I've done looks doable. I'm having a hard time finding scholarships. I've found a few programs, but it's sometimes difficult to find them! I could apply as either an American citizen or a Swiss citizen, because I have both. Also, do I need to take the GRE if I do a master's in Europe? Thanks for any and all help!

    do I have a chance??

    hey there. I've applied for HTW Berlin,Germany this Dec via uni- assist for international business, I've send them my documents and they've informed me that they received it in 15th Dec. now after 5 weeks they mailed me and said that I'm not qualified for studying in university and the deadline is already expired! the deadline was 15Jan, I don't see how is that possible, they've had my documents weeks ago, as far as I've read in DAAD they need a proof of one year study in university, which I've send them "certificate of education" issued by university, now they say they need the grades, and I've got a little problem with university and I won't be able to get an authorized version of my grades, and also my major in iran is Physics engineering and I'm applying to do bachelor again. 1-is there any chance that uni-assist is being wrong? anyone with the same experience? 2-is there any chance that university come along with me and agree on taking the authorized grades when I go for registration? 3- do i have a shot for this major?
  24. Hi all, I'd like to know which German universities' mathematics or statistics departments have the strongest reputation in the area of probability theory and mathematical statistics. I'm currently applying to a variety of German master's programs in mathematics, applied mathematics, and statistics, but -- not having been immersed in research myself -- I don't know which of these has the best reputation (particularly internationally) for research in the areas that I'd like to pursue. If anyone out there has a bit of insight, I'd really appreciate your feedback.
  25. Hey everybody, I am very new to this website and I am currently applying some grad schools around US and you know some schools want the transcripts to be send directly from the universities. However, the university I graduated in Germany refuses to send the transcripts by mail to US universities and they say it is forbidden by law. I am abroad, so I can't go and take personally from them. They won't even send them to me by post. I only have one original copy of my transcripts and that's it. Only one school agreed to accept a scanned copy but still 2-3 schools want them by post and they don't understand. Neither my german coordinator nor the officers in US. Can anybody update me? Are there any german students that can help me?
