Finally doing it!
Goal Accomplishment Criteria
I’m physically there for at least 6 months, preferably without putting my studies on hold.
Time, good marks, international expertise, alternative (continental) viewpoint
Goal ecological compatibility
Basically it all depends on the excellent time-management in the next few months, which in turn depends on my health (physical and emotional) and discipline
Why do I want it:
2. Experience from the other semisphere: analytic school (think of Koch, Schwab, Ossi)
3. Academic English skills
4. Initially multicultural society: simulation of Hobbes atomic structure of society: bellum omnium contra omnes; contemporary contract theories of Rawls vs. Honneth's approach
5. Beautiful nature in Canada :) Running with bears!!!
Add the corresponding deadlines to other steps in the goal!
Emails to profs
Find relevant professors: pick a few
Check their CVs, articles, background
Send introduction letters
What tests are accepted? Pick one
Check the deadline
What are the conditions? Do I need to have a certain sum of money on my bank account? Deadlines? Processing times?
Even if all the previous steps work out and I can go there for 'research purposes' XD, how is this compatible with my studies back here? Do I have to make up leeway in the next two semesters? How many ECTS do I have to gain in the last semester? Do I want to complete my Master in 2 years? Is it only one Kolloquium I need to participate in? Can I/do I have to already do this in the next winter term? Do I have to be physically there on a weekly basis?
When does the summer term start in Canada and the winter term finish in Germany? When do I have to be there the latest? Are there any conditions on this part at all if I come as research student?
Are there any continental schools in Canada in general? Search for alternative institutes or centres: one thing is phd, another one is working there
Plan B, C, D
In case it doesn't work out with research purposes.
- DAAD Praktikum
- Tourist visa for 6 months while I'm writing my Master thesis.
Advantages: no fees, no organisational extreme (!) time expenditure
Disadvantages: I will die completing my Master in two terms. Is this even possible?
- Premarital visa
