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!

Hi Lushomo, one of the best places to look for scholarship funding will be your chosen university (use their website to find this information) but we also have a range of scholarship articles to help students find funding opportunities all over the world. Some scholarships will depend on your academic record, some on your subject of study and some will be based on nationality.

So, I will study psychology in Leuven, because they have a lot more interesting masters and I can always work in Ireland afterwards.

Thank you, that really helped! And I will let you know as soon as I decided :)

Great, please do!

Hi, I was wondering what would be better: studying psychologie in Galway or in Leuven (Belgium). I know leuven scores higher on the list, but some people told me that there are more job opportunities for this study in Ireland.

Hi Noemi. I'd recommend spending time looking at the course content in each case, to see which appeals to you most. If you're keen to find relevant work in the local area, it might also be worth contacting the department and/or the university careers service, to see whether they offer any placement schemes. Do let us know which you decide on!

Thanks a lot Laura,I will most definitely do.You don't know how much I appreciate this...thanks again

Alternatively, take a look at our range of scholarships articles which list undergraduate and graduate scholarships to study across the world. Good luck! Laura

I truly understand what u were trying to indicate mam and I have also looked up for the date of one of these events in my city and it like 5 months from now in April. So since it's quite far so just wanted to know from you if there are any universities in Germany where I stand a chance and name of them as per your knowledge.
And thanks a lot for taking out time for my question.

Thanks a lot for that but that hardly answers my question.

Admissions criteria will vary depending on the university and the course, but admission to universities in Germany is certainly very competitive. I suggested attending the QS World Grad School Tour as a way to get access to more personalized advice and perhaps discover some new options which you hadn't previously considered - apologies for not explaining this in my previous post.

Hello mam,I have scored 43% in graduation and am looking to study for my PG in a country like Germany though I know my %age isn't that good (my 10th and 12th %ages are far better around 70%)but is there any university in which I can get a chance to enroll myself into...?I am from commerce background and am looking for Ms in business mgnt or Mass communication.
Thank u
PS-waiting desperately for favorable info from u
