Hi, I am studying in the UK on an integrated master's course and wish to make a move to Germany to undertake a PhD (will be on an employment though). Apparently for Germany, they need my degree to be verified first before I can apply for a German visa...my only concern is that my course is an "integrated" master's course meaning I will not be getting a bachelor's, but directly a master's degree. Was wondering if anyone has experience in applying for employment visas in Germany having done such an integrated master's degree in the UK...
Hi, I have recently secured an offer for a fully-funded PhD from a well-ranked university in the world (let's call it Uni1) on a CDT (structured PhD course). The problem is that the project is not really suited to my previous experience or interests and the topic is completely new for both my PhD advisors as well (they have absolutely no background in it). I am not sure if this is a good place to be considering I don't bring much from my side. I think the only reason I got accepted for this project is because the supervisors want to try out some blue skies science, and want somebody to work on it. There is a very high chance of failure for the project, which I am fine with but I am afraid I will end up having to somehow push through the PhD. As much as I enjoy scientific research and the process of it, the thought of all this is really scary.
I am an international student here in the UK and this is the only offer I have in hand right now. It has proven to be super difficult for me to secure a good place elsewhere due to funding restrictions for internationals. I cannot really afford to take a gap year.
At my current university (also well-ranked; let's call it Uni2), I am still in contention for a scholarship but the chances of my getting it are very very low.
I have informally accepted the place from Uni1 and am under pressure to make a formal acceptance soon. I know not taking it might prove to be the wrong decision down the line as I might be left with nothing. I don't really know what to do.
