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!

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!

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

Hi Suchit. Are you able to attend a QS World Grad School Tour event? This is a chance to get face to face advice and meet with universities and business schools from around the world. You can find your nearest event here

Hi Laura ! I am planning to do my (masters) in computer science . But a friend of mine told me that in Germany higher education is free ! So is it TRUE
I want authentic information . so i can proceed

Hi Umair, while studying in Germany is now completely free for undergraduate students, there are still some fees for master's students. For more information see this article. If you gain acceptance onto a program however, you may be eligible for a scholarship to cover these fees. To take a look at various scholarships to study in Germany, click here. Hope this helps! Laura

Hi Laura Bridgestock. I want to know about studying in Germany

Hi Umair! What is it you would like to know? I can't give you advice on particular programs but I can point you in the direction of our Study in Germany guide and our Study in Germany FAQ which hopefully can answer most of your questions.
