  1. Hello Everyone! I am hoping to get some thoughts on a few grad programs I have been admitted to for International Affairs / Human Rights. I would so appreciate any insights people have! Money is a huge factor. I graduated undergrad with no debt, and have about 30k in savings, but I know I don't want to take on a ton of debt since non-profit work isn't particularly lucrative. I also assume about 12k / year will be needed for housing. My options: -Fletcher / Tufts, MGA ($9k scholarship) full program cost is ~80k -BU Pardee, MAIA ($24k scholarship - waiting to find out about a full tuition FLAS scholarship) full program cost is ~105k -Middlebury Institute, MIPD ($40k scholarship) full program cost is ~85k - University of Minnesota, MA Human Rights (waiting on FA offer) -Korbel School, MA Intl Human Rights ($16k scholarship) -IHEID, MA in Development Studies (no scholarship) full program cost is only ~18k Waiting on McGill and Northeastern. I was wondering what people have heard about the MGA program at Fletcher? I know it is a first-year program, but at the moment it is my top choice. It is much more affordable than the MALD (although still SO expensive) and allows you to focus deeply on one specialization rather than studying 2 specializations less in-depth. I applied to the program as a full-time student, but am hoping to switch my status to part-time to make it more financially viable. I am slightly nervous about one aspect, which is that parts of Fletcher's alumni community publicly posted about their outrage of the creation of the MGA program, as they saw it as "cheapening" their MALD degrees. I see it as expanding accessibility, but I'm not sure how this could impact my relationships / job prospects with the alumni community, which is one of Fletcher's big draws. Finally, does anyone have any advice on appealing financial aid offers? I really love fletcher, but I don't know if its worth taking out a 50k loan for this program, if I'm not able to work part-time throughout. Thank you so much for any insights you have!
  2. Hello, I am about to go crazy. Please help me!!! I really need to decide between these programmes ASAP: LSE Comparative Politics (1 Year), Sciences Po Political Science(2 Years) or The Graduate Institute Geneva (IHEID) International Relations/Political Science (2 Years) Costs will be similar for me; with partial scholarships and the respective costs of living, overall costs are evening out. After the master’s degree (in an ideal world) I plan to apply for a DPhil in USA, I am not sure which one will be the best fit. I am slightly closer to IHEID as the classrooms are relatively small (35 students max.) and it is a 2 year programme. But Sciences Po is also 2 years, unlike 1 year LSE. I have 2 main concerns: Which one would prepare me best for pursuing a DPhil? And in case I give up or change my mind or basically get depressed which one has the best reputation to find a decent job in the third sector, IOs etc. I will be really happy if you can help me out :)))
  3. Hello there, I created this topic so that people who will apply or applied at IHEID can interact with other prospective students.
  4. Hi, I'm applying for a Masters in International Relations at The Graduate Institute Geneva (IHEID) 2020-2022 and thought it would be worth starting a thread for others in the middle of the application process, as well. Any words of advice/encouragement/inspiration would be so welcome! Kayla
  5. Hi Is there anyone here who is applying / current or ex student of the Masters in Development Studies/ Masters in International Affairs Program at IHEID, Geneva. I had a couple of queries on admissions, scholarships and career prospects. thanks
