Recommended Posts

Since nobody yet to start a new thread about KAUST,

lets make one :)

 

I apply for KAUST fall 2016 for Marine Science PhD

got 2 masters already, one from KAUST, another one from a japanese public university

both 3.8/ 4.0 GPA

KAUST admission staff told me I dont need TOEFL/IELTS anymore,

but i have booked IELTS session, that i couldnt cancel (dang!)

got 1 first author paper, several posters,

internship in Japan culture collection,

let see how it will turn out to be,

quite nervous reading all the posts in KAUST spring 2016,

it seems luck is the most important thing.

Dar friend hironohaha

I just wonder why did you not apply to study PHD with KAUST from the beginning?

Good luck with your new application.

Has anyone heard anything in terms of interviews for Fall as yet?

Hello guys,

I'm applying for MS Mechanical Engineering, still waiting for the interview invitation but somewhat feels hopeless (haha)

My qualification is just a mediocre, BS on Aerospace Engineering from my local university, 2nd class upper, TOEFL 84, no GRE, plus i'm a hijabi woman.

Is there any possibilities where one does not get invited to interview and not receiving any news?

hey hironahah. you seem a very prospective candidate. Best of Luck. As you are already done with your masters in KAUST, can you please share your interview experiences? Are MS/PhD students and PhD students treated alike by KAUST, I am apllying for MS/PhD in Electro Physics. Also I have recommendation by a KAUST professor, so do I need to take a technical interview again? Actually my sponsor told me that you dont have to, but still I am curious!

Hi, Hironohaha. I just had it. It seems going on well. Professor told me to wait several days more for decision.

How about your application?

Hi, Alvsyhrn. I submitted the application on 01/01 for Master's degree. Then, I got an Email indicated that I was transferred to PhD program on 01/07, because I'm going to obtain a master degree in US. 

The interview is on two part: 1. Introduction to Kaust; 2. My research experience. Professor is nice.

Good luck to you. :)

nothing so far,

but I got a suspicious notification from my researchgate account that a reader from Germany open my profile,

it might be the professor... since I havent contact him personally before the application.

Anyway, I am anxious XD

I dont want to keep my expectation too high...I read the previous KAUST thread, too much disappointment there.

I was part of Discovery Scholarship from KAUST, waaay in 2008, different system, so I dont think I could provide relevant information for current condition.

firly! Dont you keep your morale down.. they look for a culturally diverse pupils as far as I know, so you can be among them! You just have to convince them that ur hijab has nothing to do with aims and goals!
