Dear Madam,

 

I am a final year Computer Science engineering student. I am interested in the field of Data Science and Mining. After a six-month internship, I want to do MS in the same field. Is work experience compulsory for this? Could you let me know about the universities in the United States and Canada that offer research oriented and practical full-time 


Master's degree.

Dear Student,

In the US, universities that are well known for Data Science and Mining are Carnegie Mellon, University of Illinois Urbana Champaign, Georgia Institute of Technology, Columbia University, University of California, Berkeley, Cornell University and Northwestern University among others.

In Canada, the universities that offer Master's programmes in Data Science, Big Data, Mining, Data Analytics and others include University of British Columbia, University of Waterloo, McGill University, University of New Brunswick, University of Windsor, Ottawa University, Carleton University, University of Calgary and University of Western Ontario. Work experience is not required for an MS programme anywhere, but will definitely look good on the resume.

 

Dear Madam,

My daughter is studying in Grade 11, with Physics, Chemistry, Maths and Computer Science as her subjects. She has an inclination towards Chemistry and Math. She has very good communication and leadership skills and shows inclination for management. Are there any integrated undergraduate courses abroad keeping the above in mind? We are interested in good universities in Europe or Singapore.

A Parent

 

Dear Parent,

Your daughter can apply for a management course in any university in any country with this background. If she is keen on an integrated course or double degree, she must look into liberal arts colleges that offer a major and a minor.

National University of Singapore and Singapore Management University in Singapore offer many integrated programmes and double degrees. Utrecht University and Amsterdam University College in The Netherlands, Bard College Berlin in Germany, University of Birmingham, King's College London, Durham University and University of Bristol in the UK are some of the good universities you could consider.

 

Dear Madam,

I am a first PUC student and I would like to do MBBS. Could you please suggest me some colleges and the exams required to pursue MBBS abroad with scholarship?

A Student

 

Dear Student,

I would recommend UK for MBBS. You need to take the IELTS and either the UK Clinical Aptitude Test (UKCAT) or Bio Medical Admissions Test (BMAT) as an entry requirement. Before applying to the universities, you need to check which of these two tests are acceptable by them and take it accordingly. MBBS is a five-year programme in the United Kingdom. Tuition fees could be anything in the range from 17,500 to 35,000 GBP per annum.

Some of the top schools for MBBS are University of Cambridge, University of Oxford, Imperial College London, University College London, King's College London, University of Birmingham, University of Bristol, Cardiff University, University of Glasgow, University of Liverpool, University of Exeter and University of Dundee. Merit-based scholarships are available in most universities.

 

Dear Madam,

 

I am a PUC II student with Physics, Chemistry, Maths and Computer Science as my electives. I am interested in pursuing engineering in Computer Science or Electronics. I would like to study on a scholarship in Singapore. Could you elaborate on the application process and the exams required. What are the 


options for a candidate who scores between 80 to 90%? Does a project on computer hardware help in securing admission 
with this percentage?

 

A Student

 

Dear Student,

National University of Singapore (NUS) and The Ministry of Education in Singapore offer The Science & Technology Undergraduate Scholarship to support outstanding students from Asian countries (excluding Singapore). Candidates will be considered and shortlisted for the scholarship through their applications for undergraduate admission to NUS.

No separate application is required for the scholarship. Recipients of the scholarship (scholars) are required to serve a six-year bond with a Singapore-registered company immediately upon graduation. Take the SAT, Subject SAT in Math level 2, Physics and Chemistry and TOEFL iBT or IELTS. Prepare a strong resume highlighting all your awards and achievements in academics, extracurricular activities, sports, internships, projects, etc.

 

Dear Madam,

I am currently doing my Bachelor's in History, English and Sociology. I wish to pursue my Master's in UK in International Relations and Diplomacy. Can you throw some light on International studies, its scope, and the UK universities which offer this programme?

Dear Krishna,

 

International diplomacy is the skill in Management of 
International relations. The world we live in demands skilled professionals to maintain positive diplomatic relations between countries, prevent international conflicts, and ensure things run smoothly between governments.

 

The study and practice of international relations is interdisciplinary in nature, blending the fields of economics, history, and political science to examine topics such as human rights, environment, economics, globalisation, security, global ethics, and the political environment. The practice of international relations is valuable in a wide array of settings. Some examples include humanitarian organisations like World Food Programme, Government agencies, Department of State, Department of Homeland Security, Department of Commerce, International corporations, Media outlets, Intergovernmental organisations like World Trade Organisation ans United Nations.

Some of the universities I recommend in the UK for International Relations are University of Westminster, King's College London, Nottingham Trent University, Regent's University London, Middlesex University, University of Warwick, University of Edinburgh and University of Glasgow.
