Dear Madam,

I am a third year Electronics and Communication engineering student. I plan to pursue a Master's course in Engineering Management in countries like New Zealand or UK. Could you suggest some universities? What is the process to apply for the programme for September 2019? Do I have to write GRE if I am writing IELTS?

A Student

Dear Student,

Universities for Engineering Management in New Zealand are University of Canterbury and University of Auckland. In UK, Nottingham Trent University, Brunel University, Middlesex University, University of Birmingham and the University of Manchester. You don't have to write the GRE exam for both of these countries. Your IELTS scores are sufficient.

Dear Madam,

I am a final year Industrial and Production engineering student and I would like to pursue an MS degree in the same field in Germany. I have been going through some of the courses offered by the colleges and have observed that a few of them ask for a work experience of at least one year. Since I do not have any work experience is there a chance of me getting accepted for the course or is it advisable to apply for an alternative course?

A Student

Dear Student,

Some of the German universities which are well-known for Industrial and Production Engineering include Technical University of Berlin, Hamburg University of
Technology, Esslingen University of Applied Sciences, Reutlingen University,
FH Aachen University of Applied Sciences, Technical University of Munich,
Technical University of Darmstadt and University of Groningen.

Work experience is definitely a preferred entry requirement. If you have a high GPA, have carried out projects other than your regular course work and have knowledge of German language, they will consider your application. Alternative courses like Engineering Management do not require work experience.

Either way, I would advise you to register for and complete a German language course at the Goethe Institute. This will help you with your admissions and will work to your advantage in the job market.

Dear Madam,

I am studying II PUC (Science). I am interested in studying Neuroscience. For this, I want to continue my education abroad and wish to study Neuroscience in Germany or other European countries. What are the qualifications and exams I have to take to study abroad? Also, what is the minimum percentage I have to get in my II PUC exam? Lastly, which universities are good to study Neuroscience?

A Student

Dear Student,

German universities offer high quality education, are extremely affordable and offer long stay visas for students. Hence, getting admission to one of their universities is highly competitive. You should have a high percentage of over 85 % in your PUC and a good IELTS or TOEFL score.

Doing a course in German language will strengthen your application. University of Munich, Heidelberg University, Eberhard Karls University Tübingen, Charite -Medical University of Berlin, University of Bonn and Heinrich Heine University of Dusseldorf are good for Neuroscience.

Dear Madam,

I am a fourth year BE student. I'm interested in having a career in research and teaching. Currently I'm preparing for GATE with a goal of pursuing Masters in Aerospace engineering in an IIT. Would it be a better option to try for MS in a
foreign university?

A Student

Dear Student,

If you are taking the GATE and aiming for the IITs, stay focused and work towards your plan. In my experience, it is easier to get into a foreign university than an IIT. Luckily, most foreign universities accept the GATE scores. Perhaps you could keep your options open by applying to both IITs as well as some of the top foreign universities.

Dear Madam,

I am a Class 12 student. I want to become an oncologist. Could you please suggest some good colleges abroad for the same? Also, please suggest the application process and the exams I need to attempt.

Spoorthi

Dear Spoorthi,

Oncology is offered as a specialised course by all the top medical schools in the world. Depending on which country you wish to study in, the entrance exams vary.

For instance, for US, Canada, Singapore and Europe you need to write SAT, SAT Subject tests, TOEFL iBT or IELTS. For the UK, you need to write IELTS and UKAT or BMAT.

Application process is very similar in all countries. You have to complete an online application and upload documents such as passport copy, resume, statement of purpose, high school transcripts, test scores, and letters of recommendations from two subject teachers and a counsellor.

Dear Madam,

I'm studying MBBS. I would like to pursue my Master's degree in the UK or Singapore. Please guide with the procedure or tests required for the same.

Sheeba

Dear Sheeba,

Singapore universities such as NUS - Duke Medical School and NTU offer postgraduate programmes like MD and PhD. Both MCAT and GAMSAT test scores are accepted by them. To pursue a Master's in the UK after your MBBS, you need to write only the IELTS test. Once you are registered for your programme, you should take the PLAB exam to be able to practice in the UK.

Dear Madam,

I want to pursue my MS in Germany. Most of the universities don't ask for GRE in Germany, but does having a GRE score help in getting into a better university? Kindly help me with some suggestions.

A Student

Dear Student,

GRE is required for most German universities. It certainly will help even if it is not mandatory. Additionally, take the TOEFL iBT or IELTS and a German Language test. You should always aim to have more credentials than what is the bare requirement.
