Dear Sabrina,
I am very happy the QS offers such a scholarship :-) I wonder whether people who currently study in their master's in a double degree program are eligible for this scholarship. This year, I complete my first master's year in France. Next year, however, I will continue in the U.S. at a different university and complete a different degree as each of the universities awards a separate degree. I would be very thankful if you liked to share your opinion. Thank you very much and stay safe.
Best, Nicholas

Hi Nicholas, I am doing the same thing - a dual degree in France and then the US. Which program are you pursing may I ask?

Hi, would it suffice as long as I have attended a QS fair, even if it was a few years ago?

whats a 1-2-1 event of QS

Hi, What is a QS Connect Masters 1-2-1 event?

Hi Marzieh, the QS Connect Masters 1-2-1 event is a one-to-one meeting between masters students and admissions staff from universities. You'll be able to gain insider application tips from admissions directors, a more in-depth knowledge of the university and the programs on offer, and be eligible to apply for QS scholarships. You can find your nearest QS World Grad School Tour event here. :)
