Grad school scholarships?

On the topuniversities blog there's this post which got me thinking about trying for one of these! I'd like to study somewhere new and far away from home to really make the most of this experience but it seems like such a far-fetched dream sometimes. Have any of you received such scholarships, and care to share how you got them? Thanks!

Does the tuition free study apply to to the masters as well? Also, after completing my studies, do i have to leave the country or can I live there?

Dear Laura,

I want to pursue MBA in Germany/Scandinavia regarding which I have following queries:

1) Do I need to clear TOEFL or German Equivalent or Scandinavian Equivalent for language to study/work in these countries?

2)What would be the total expenses(24 month tuition fee+rent/accommodation+misc expenses) on an average?

3) What are the chances of getting a job(in Germany/Scandinavia) after the completion of course from them and how much would they pay?

4) Is there any European equivalent of GMAT or is GMAT score good enough to get admission there? What is the exact procedure to get admission?

I have read several of your blogs and also others in many different websites but each give different views. Kindly guide me.

Hi Ankit. Take a look at our sister site, - this is dedicated to MBAs :)

I've received an admission offer & accepted it for master's program starting from Sept, 2015 at some Canadian university. We live in India & now I'm to apply for study permit. I've got all required documents, but have a little query regarding financial support document. My real uncle (mother's brother) will be supporting me financially for my expenses such as education fees, daily expenses for survival in Canada. What documents me & my uncle need to arrange for financial support document ?
I'm looking forward for your kind response.


Hi there, this information is available on the CIC website here and it states that you can provide 'some' of the evidence listed. I'd advice providing a letter from your Uncle outlining his intention to support you and copies of your uncle's bank statements for the last 4 months.

The amount of money a single student needs proof of (outside of Quebec) is the cost of tuition + CAD$10,000 for a 12-month period (or $833 per month)

I hope this helps!
