Germany universities top 10
So each city offers the chance to study at an internationally recognized institution and to be part of a sizeable metropolis, with all the recreational and professional opportunities that can bring.
Some of these top 10 most affordable cities combine low tuition fees with generally low living expenses; others are in fact known for being pretty expensive places to live, but this is balanced out by low study costs. Half of the top 10 are in Europe, four in Asia and one in Latin America. It’s perhaps unsurprising that none are in the US, UK, Australia or Canada – all very popular among international students, but all known for charging high tuition fees.
Still not understanding what your point is
Your 2006 Newsweek rankings confirm what i've already told you. The 2007 rankings are only different by two schools.
So getting back to what we were originally discussing and how this began.. who has the best universities? Well according to my 2007 ARWU and your 2006 Newsweek rankings, US has 8 of the top 10.. according to your 2007 ranking, US has 6 of the top 10 (Harvard being the top school in the world in EVERY survey). Any way you look at it, your argument that Europe has better universities is wrong. In only one of the three, the UK (nothing in Germany) cracked the top five
What does it take to get into these schools?
I´m interested in the following schools: the kennedy school of government, fletcher, SAIS (johns hopkins), columbia. all for a master (and possibly PhD) in international relations or something similar.
i have a german diploma (equivalent of a master of science) in business and economics, with a minor in politics (really just a tiny part of the whole education, worth 1/7 of my final grade). my grades are in the top 10-20% in politics and economics, the business grades aren´t too good. still above average, but not great.
i have lots of international experience, went to school in four different countries, studied in germany and will write my thesis in spain
