Ph.D. in Economics in Europe-Searching safety option

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

I am currently a Ph.D. student at one of the top school in Economics in Turkey. However, I applied 7 schools for Ph.D. in Europe( SSE, Maastricht, Lund, EUI, PSE, BGSE, MGSE). I am very nervous about taking rejection all of them. Since I don't want to pursue my education here, I am searching one safety option in Europe. I will be very appreciated if someone helps me.

 

My profile:

 

Undergrad GPA: 2.77 in Economics (a French spoken university in Turkey, I am ranked top 1000 among 2 million people at university entrance exam)

Grad GPA: 3.11 in Economics (one of the top three universities in Turkey)

Published paper in Economics Letters.

Current GPA in Ph.D.: 3.39 (one of the top three universities in Turkey)

References from well-known professors who took their Ph.D. from top universities.

Have a look at the Belgian universities: ECARES (ULB), Louvain, and Leuven.

Hi,

 

What are your GRE scores? If they are high, you will definitely be accepted at least one of the schools you listed. I am not sure about funding, though. Since I am Turkish too, I know it may be hard to find external funding if the school does not offer scholarships.

 

Is BGSE Barcelona GSE or Bonn? You should apply to both of them. Applications for Bonn closes on 31st March. Barcelona GSE admits on rolling basis.

Good luck!
