I would like to apply for a Master’s degree in Germany, in Computer Science Field. But since I work I would go for a flexible option.

A coworker told me there are online options.

By googling I could not find anything specific.

I live in Frankfurt, and would like to know some good options for an online Master’s.

I am posting this question on behalf of my friend. Currently my friend is attending the last year of the bachelors degree and has a interest on following up the bachelor with a masters degree.

Now the issue is in following it up with a masters degree. The university my friend attends is located in Israel and rather strangely their third and final year started very late. Which means that the actual final exams will be around September 2017. Now my friend has a interest in pursuing a masters degree in Europe, however this possibly overlaps because most masters also start in September 2017 in Europe and the bachelors degree exams might still be going on, without knowing if my friend graduated or not.

To summarize:

  • Most European universities start around September 2017;
  • The bachelors degree exams finishes around September 2017;
  • There’s a chance that a masters study might have started while my friend is still finishing up their bachelors;
  • My friend has no delays in the current study and actually has excellent grades.

I guess that perhaps some agreement can be made with a university about this issue. However my friend is wondering what a general accepted thing in this situation would be. Would a layover year be enforced unfortunately or some agreements can be made with the new university, so there can be started later and everything is good as long my friend graduates.

So my question: The ending/exams of my friends bachelors degree and possibly follow up masters degree start in Europe overlaps. How to proceed with this to make sure no year has to be wasted on waiting to start ‘on time’ next year.

I’m preparing to apply for two master’s programs. For one of the programs, I asked an advisor how many people graduate each year.

I asked because of the 350 people who apply each year about 120 are admitted. (It’s an online master’s.) This is a very high number to me, especially when compared to the other program I’m considering. So it makes me curious how many people actually graduate, which also can give me insight into competition in the workforce.

She told me they don’t keep records of graduate numbers because it fluctuates from year to year.

This sounds extremely fishy to me. Is this a common practice for master’s programs?

So, I just finished my Masters at a top University in the UK but I was awarded a Pass. I recently met up with a potential supervisor at another top institution about my proposed topic – and she really likes me, loves the research, and has been sending me funding information.

However, how do I get around the fact that I got a poor grade on my MSc for funding applications? Some of the funding offers a chance for students to do a MSc then a PhD. Is it wrong to apply to these and not even say that I did a Masters? It feels like I’d have been better off.

To add to this, I actually have a very good record of research experience, and my transcript for the MSc is good. I just lost marks on my thesis which meant I couldn’t get a Merit (or 2:1).

I’m so worried, I want nothing more than to do a PhD, particularly on the topic I proposed (community stigma, mental health). I really don’t want this to set me back!

I’m currently in my fourth and final year of my UK masters degree in Physics. The course is accredited as an MSci, equivalent to doing a 3 year Bsc followed by a 1 year Msc.

I’d like to apply to study nuclear engineering at Universite Paris-Saclay in France. The masters available there consists of a Masters 1 and a Masters 2, 2 successive years of study. I’m trying to find out if it’s possible to start directly in the Masters 2, but it’s difficult to figure out what exactly my MSci will be equivalent to. The course states it requires a Masters 1 or equivalent, but with no information on what it considers sufficient.

Under the bologna process, the UK masters is equivalent to the French (nominally), so in theory I’ll already be above the required level.

Does anyone know of a student starting a French masters in the second year?

I will be starting my MS in CS in spring 2017. At the time of admission, I was not sure of PhD and hence applied only for MS program. However, I would want to transfer to PhD program. Is it possible to transfer/convert the MS program to PhD? I am start my studies after a gap more than 6 yrs and don’t want to wait another semester.
Since I am an engineering undergraduate, I am eligible to apply PhD without MS program.

I published a master’s thesis through some online system through my university. They said they would post it online, but I’m not able to find it online.

For a few months, it was hosted on my personal page on the university domain, so it was downloadable in Google Scholar, but that’s no longer the case.

How can I make my paper more accessible to people searching for the topic? Is this a common thing to do?

I have done BS(hons.) Electronics (2006–2010) and got 3.39 CGPA with overall 80% marks and -A grade. My IELTS band score is 7.5. I have six years of industry experience.
I am planning to apply in following universities with priorities as indexed.

1)University of Toronto
2)University of British Colombia
3)University of Alberta
4)University of Waterloo
5)University of Calgary

Do I stand a chance of getting admission in any of these universities with this profile. If yes please recommend me the best one . If no then please recommend some alternatives.

I am asking this just to get an idea where do I stand and then apply accordingly.
