Mphil funding

Postby hni » Wed Aug 18, 2010 11:05 am

I am an international student
and my major GPA is about 3.0
and I want to apply a MPhil program
But hopelesslly I dun have much money to complete
my studies there. So I prefer to have some TA ship or
other fundings
If I am able to get a TA ship from some MPhil program
with this low GPA, which shcools exactly should I apply or
what requirements are needed for getting funding for international student applying MPhil program??
Also, I hope that I can get into some school ranked 50-100
in the fall . Will it be possible to do all these??

Thanks

This is a forum for physics students. I'm not sure you will get much good advice on an MPhil, why not try a more general graduate school forum, like College Confidential?

MPhil programs are offered in UK. they call the master as MPhil and phd as DPhil. in their system there is not too much funding available for master especially from the beginning. if you start and show your capabilities they might offer some grants which they call studentship. in this forum we mostly talk about US schools admission and we have many specialists in the field 8)

Well...I am sorry I forgot to say that I would lke to apply the US program.
Anyway, will there be any US Physics Mphil programs offer a TA ship when you are not a local student and you are entering that college with GPA 3.0 in the Fall?

Thanks

In the US this degree is called a MS for master of science, or simply a masters for short. Most do not offer funding, here is a thread where some funded MS programs are listed:
