Anonymous: Sir My daughter is pursuing her 4th year BArch course.
In the 5th year, she has to do an internship and then maybe project work.
I would like her to do a Master's in Architecture at a foreign university.
Can you guide me on this?

Certainly! Encourage your daughter to pursue her master's in architecture abroad by researching reputable universities known for architecture programmes such as ETH Zurich, Harvard University or the Bartlett School of Architecture.

Prepare early, focusing on portfolio development, letters of recommendation and the necessary standardised tests.

Explore scholarship options and admission requirements and consider universities with strong ties to her architectural interests.

This proactive approach will enhance her chances of a successful application process.


Manoj: Hi madam My son is doing master's in economics at Central University with 85 per cent marks.
He is interested in doing his PhD from a good university in the USA/UK.

What’s the procedure to apply and get a good university?

Hi Manoj. To pursue a PhD in Economics in the USA or UK, your son should identify potential advisors, excel in standardised tests like GRE (Graduate Record Examinations) or GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test), prepare a strong research proposal and secure compelling recommendation letters.

Research universities that align with his academic interests, considering faculty expertise and programme reputation.

Pay attention to application deadlines and engage in relevant research or work experience to strengthen his application.

Good luck!
