Admission and Scholarship in Germany (Part A)

As promised, let's start the year by discussing Germany.

Tag your friends, take fruit juice and unwind this thread🧵:
In Part A, I will discuss what you need to know about Admission and Scholarship in Germany, In Part B, I will show you how to practically apply and get funding.

Read the following general facts about Germany:

1. About 80-90% of the Universities are tuition-free.
However, in some states, you may be asked to pay about 1000-3000 Euros/semester, which covers student union fees and travel tickets around the state for a semester.

2. Most Msc students don't search for scholarships. Instead, they look for a block account of about 10, 000


3. From the block account, the Govt pays you about 850 Euros monthly for Living expenses.

4. If you can find a way to get the block account, you have the chance of recouping your money back and much more because student job is around 1000 Euros/month, and it's about 20-40hrs /week.

5. Another method of showing financial commitment is via sponsorship letter. This letter is usually provided by someone legally working in Germany with a temporary or permanent residence permit and is earning a good amount of money.

This letter will be sent to you from Germany.
You will then present it to the embassy. So, if you can find someone who can provide this sponsorship letter, you are good to go. You can then hustle to take care of yourself.

This video explains how to get a sponsorship letter:
6. Germany is a result-oriented country, You must produce something. Else, you may not be released.

Ask @olumuyiwaayo about his experience😃.

7. IT-related courses, Engineering, and Health courses have higher chances of getting jobs after school.
8. You need to eventually learn the language in order to stay successful after school. English related jobs are fewer.

9. You have about 18 months to look for a job after graduation. Some people enroll for another Master's or
BSC if they cannot get a job. Once they do, they abandon the program🤣.

10. You don't need to contact any Professor to get Msc admission and scholarship in Germany, Once you come in, your department can even send scholarship links to you as an International student.

Bros, @olumuyiwaayo , please add to it.
In Part B, I will tell you how to get a scholarship for Msc and Ph.D. and the various types of scholarships available in Germany.

Tag your friends and stay tuned.

Content of a good SOP (Episode 4)

Today, we will discuss how to conclude SOP.

If you missed past episodes, kindly check this:

In your last paragraph, you should think about the following:
1. Discuss what you intend to achieve during the Msc/PhD program. You need to let the admission committee understand that you have a target. This means that you must have a specific research interest or idea you think may be explored as discussed with your proposed supervisor
mentioned in the previous paragraphs. If you don't need to have a supervisor, then you should mention potential supervisors you aim to work with.

2. Discuss your immediate plans after the program. Your plan should either be to implement the things you intend to learn in

Content of a good SOP (Episode 3)

I'm sure you must have read episodes 1 and 2. Check here to see:

Ok, you also need to jot the following points:

1. Your work experience: If your present work is related to your research experience, please highlight
it and explain. If it does not, you don't need to mention it. What of your Internship? What did you learn there? And how do you think the experience can help your application? You should be able to mention an epiphany or a scenario in your work or Internship that made
you understand some concepts. Then make sure you align the concept with your application.

2. Research Experience: If your undergraduate work is published, this will be a huge boost. If it's not, try to discuss with your supervisor about it. There are FREE publishing websites.
