  1. Hi everyone! I'm an international student currently studying in the UK. I was accepted into a PhD programme in the US and am now trying to apply for an F-1 visa. Due to the travel ban and closure of consulates/embassies worldwide, I am quite worried about getting my visa on time - I assume I am not the only one. I tried to schedule an appointment in my home country (Germany), however, appointments are fully booked until December. Thus, I was wondering if anyone is in a similar situation and has tried to schedule a visa appointment in the UK (London/Belfast)? I'd rather not pay the applic
  2. Are there any other incoming international students who were informed by your departments that classes would be 100% online for the fall? if so, did they comment on how that would affect eligibility for a student visa since DHS regulations limit the number of online credits a student can take to maintain visa eligibility?
  3. Hi all, Currently wondering about the MScPh program via Distance offered by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine? Anyone have any insights?
  4. Any other international students out there in the process of accepting an offer to NYU for the Fall 2020 semester during the COVID-19 pandemic? Have you started your i-20 application? I was hoping to attend Steinhardt for the Fall, but with everything going on, the uncertainty has me anxious in moving forward with my acceptance. Considering the cost of tuition, finding living arrangements, and other expenses, has the pandemic changed your plans? As of now, NYU plans to have in person classes this Fall, but who knows how things will move forward... Do you think it's worth the cost for
  5. Hello GradCafe people! Seeking some clarity on the subject above. I'm an international student, and I'm looking to apply for an MA Economics in Canada. I'm aiming for UBC, Queen's, UWaterloo, SFU, and McMaster. Reaching out to see if anyone has been through it as an international student, and how your application was. I'm open to sharing my profile - I will add it later when more people discuss. Thank you. P.S: Stay safe during these troubling times!
  6. Hi, it's my first time here, so not exactly sure if I'm doing this right! Are there any international students applying for a Masters program for performing arts administration or theater production and management?
  7. Hi. To anyone reading this, looking for some advise. I'm from Kenya, looking to apply to a master's SLP program. There are so many options out there quite overwhelmed. Because of my international status, looking for programs which could be affordable to me. Or those with in-state offers/GA/any other form of funding. No preferences on location, open to anything that would work. I'm looking to apply for the Fall2020, and need to start alot of preparation right now. Any help/advise/tips would be appreciated!
  8. We invite you to sign this petition: https://tiny.cc/kulfees asking KU Leuven to stop the increase of the tuition fees for non European students and special programmes. Until recently, in KU Leuven (Louvain, Belgium) everyone was charged the same tuition fee: 922 EUR. Now in some faculties non European students should pay up to 6000 EUR. The reasons given are multiple, however it is evident that the real reason should either be that they want more money or they really dislike poor international students. This change of tuition fees puts the university at the risk of losing its internation
  9. 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 ho
  10. Hello, It seems luck isn't on my side this year. I applied to four schools in the US for the Fall season and so far, I've been rejected by three. Not really expecting a positive response from the last school seeing as it's already late. I want to start applying to Canadian schools for the spring season and I would appreciate any good suggestions regarding schools that offer Masters in Microbiology, Biology(specializing in Microbiology) or Biotechnology. Also the chances of receiving a scholarship offer as an international student. Thank you. If you can suggest good schools for this p
  11. April comes to an end in like 4 days and I am still expecting a response from UT Knoxville and Oklahoma state uni. I'm an international student so i need enough time to send my official documents and prepare for my visa application if I am eventually admitted, hopefully. This delay is not helping at all. Has anyone heard from these schools?
  12. I was admitted to SIPA for the MPA in Development Practice and NYU Wagner for the MPA in Public & Non Profit Management & Policy (International specialization) and was fortunate to receive funding from both. I'm aware that it's possible to request additional funding from each school, but as of now I'd be paying ~45k out of pocket for the 2 years at NYU and ~68k for the 2 years at Columbia. With a 22k difference (and this doesn't even include living expenses!), I'd like to know how Columbia's and NYU's programs compare (in terms of academics, internship & career opportunities, netwo
  13. Hi everyone I am from Turkey, I will start studying PhD starting August 22. My visa appointment went very well, the officer asked me only three questions, didn't ask for any additional documents and instantly gave me an approval. He even wished me good luck . However, I got my passport back 10 days later, with a yellow-colored paper attached (and without a visa). It was explained that my application required further administrative processing, but it wasn't explained why. Is there anyone here who had a similar experience? Why could this have happened to me? How long did it take you to get you
  14. Hi all! I came across this Nature article on tips for international students applying to grad school in the United States: https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-00845-z?utm_source=Nature+Briefing&utm_campaign=db543bc5f4-briefing-dy-20190314&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_c9dfd39373-db543bc5f4-43891109 I hope it is helpful!
  15. Hi, I'm an international student with an interest in policy. My end goal is to become a consultant for government policy, and I was wondering whether looking into internships in US government entities is reasonable or a waste of my time. Could anyone help me on this?
  16. Hey everyone, new here so not sure if this has been asked. I'm curious how many international students are studying criminology and criminal justice in the states... In my program there are like, a couple of international students and I checked some other schools and the numbers are pretty low too.
  17. Hello everyone! I am new in this Forum so I don't exactly know how it works... But anyway, I am going to explain my situation and see if I can get any help (which I would really appreciate). I am planning to apply to my PhD this fall as an international student. I am from Europe and I did my bachelor there. It is my first time ever applying to an American university, so any advice would be helpful. - Bachelor/Masters in Pharmacy (I put Masters because it takes 5 years, it is considered Bachelor+Master in Europe, and I have a paper that gives it the academic equivalence to Doctor
  18. Hey guys! I`ve studied Psychology in Romania, my converted GPA is 3.8, and I will take my GRE exam soon, I got some tutoring and I`m doing really good at the simulation. I`d really want to get into a Social or Cognitive (or combined) Psychology program in USA, but I see most require research, and most people here say you don`t really stand any chance without research experience. The thing is, here there are not so many research opportunities, and I`m willing to go for international research, but I`m not really sure where I can find any. I`ve looked up on APA site, but most of them are no
  19. I am a female international student, got my BS in the US. I'm finishing my application but I think I'm not applying to enough schools. Undergrad School: A small, non-research, liberal art women's college in the US Undergrad Major: Chemistry Undergrad GPA: 3.95 out of 4.0 GRE: Q = 170 , V = 157 , AW = 5.0 TOEFL iBT: 114 (S = 25) Chemistry Subject GRE: I bombed it, so I won't send it in unless it says "highly recommended" Courses: I had all the basic required Chemistry classes except In
  20. I'm an international student with 2 years of work experience and an Integrated (UG+PG) MA in Development Studies, applying to US schools for a PhD in Anthropology. I feel the weak link in my profile is my undergrad GPA and I'm not sure what to do about it. II was in an inter-disciplinary programme and had to take compulsory courses in Economics and I ended up choosing a quant-heavy minor as well, which really brought my GPA down. These courses don't matter to Anthro, I guess and schools that I'm applying to have repeatedly mentioned that it's only one aspect of the application. But it still w
  21. Hey everyone. I'm looking into MPA programs to apply to this year or next year and I'm desperately hoping to find programs that are critical of the aid/development machine and that don't flinch around topics such as slavery, colonialism, the racial wealth divide, capitalism and neoliberalism, etc. This post greatly resonates with how I feel about the field of international development, both academically and professionally. I was pursuing a PhD in a humanities field but have gotten so tired about just talking, writing, and teaching about these topics. I'm ready for a degree that will equip me w
  22. Hey guys!! ? I think it is about time to start this year's application thread. I'm sure many of you have already started the application process and some are finished. I hope this thread will help you in ways it can and give you as much info on schools as possible. I am applying for the third time (due to financial reasons could never accept the offers), you know what they say third is the charm. Personally i will be applying for MA in International Relations/Affairs with concentrations in Development and Human Rights. Best of luck to all of you and hopefully thi
  23. Hello everyone, I am applicant from India wanting to apply for Masters program in Data Science/Data Analytics/Computational Chemical Engineering. My humble request is to review my profile and suggest me some universities I should target for applying to the Masters programs. Also, if someone could suggest any chances of obtaining a funded masters opportunity at some universities, it would be awesome ! Thanks in advance ! Profile: - Bachelor of Technology (B.Tech.) from Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur (IIT Kanpur) with GPA of 9.3/10 - Major in Chemical Engineering with Min
  24. Hi all, I'm a prospective applicant for a masters degree in CS in South Korea. As I mentioned in the title, I have done some other kinds of activities during undergraduate school rather than research experience like participating in a South Korean government scholarship program. I have been interested in Computer Graphics, so want to deeply study more and further would like to work in related industries. But it's just all to take a couple of classes. My question is, how can I cover my paucity of research experience to apply the thesis option and find an advisor? I'd applied at several sc
  25. Just graduated with Psychology and Human Development bachelors degrees. Got into a developmental PhD program in the 2018 cycle but turned it down due to poor fit/funding. Starting to look at programs for the 2019 cycle and am interested in applying to some MSc programs at UK schools. Interested in Autism research and a lot of the Autism work in the UK is very interesting and progressive. Has anyone from the US applied to/attended a UK program for grad school? I'm a little lost on the timeline and the funding options. I'm also not sure if I should be looking at MSc taught or research
