Post Graduate Study in Germany


freebird
Hi All

I am working in India. My wife has completed her LLM from India & Diploma in Intellectual Property Rights. She is currently in a teaching profession in India.
I am going to Germany on deputation for a duration of one year in this September - October. So I would like to know if there are post graduate courses which can be completed by her in period of less than or equal to one year and which suit best for her qualifications. Also I need to know the extra qualification criteria and the fee structures, scholarships for the courses.
She is joining me in germany in september on dependent visa. Is it needed to convert the dependent visa in to student visa if she finds admission? If its so can it be done without going back to india? Thanks for reading so many questions at a time.

I very much appreciate any help offered.

Thank you all

Hi freebird!

As a German IP-lawyer, I might be able to answer some of your questions. The opportunities of your wife will very much depend on her ability to speak German. If she doesn't speak German, the only suitable programme will probably be the LLM offered by the MIPLC in Munich (http://www.miplc.de/), which is the best IP-programme in continental Europe but also the most expensive.
If your wife speaks German, she might consider doing her LLM at the universities of Muenster or Duesseldorf - both of them offer specialized IP-programmes. The University of Heidelberg runs a LLM-programme in German Law, which includes some IP-courses.
Another option would be a PhD-degree (Dr. jur. in German), which is a research degree. Although it seems almost impossible to finish a thesis in just one year, your wife could start her thesis in Germany and finish it after you have returned to India. The advantage of a PhD would be that it is more prestigious than a LLM in many countries and that it is actually cheaper to obtain than a LLM.
I hope this is of help to you. Have a great time in Germany!

Hey kamille!

I did my LL.M. at Europa-Institut in European Law at Saarland University in Saarbrücken. We had a couple of Russian students and as far as I can tell they didn't get the impression being "disliked" at all... :-)
The program at Europa-Institut is very international. Last year we were around 80 stundents from more than 30 nations. We had many students from eastern Europe. Russians (as I already told you), Czech, Georgians, Ukraine, Azerbaidjan...
Getting to know people wasn't a problem at all. :-)
I really enjoyed my time there!

If you af any other question, just ask...

Best,
Eric

I can recommend the new LL.M. Programme "Master of Laws in Corporate Restructuring" at the University of Heidelberg. It is all about legal and business aspects of corporate restructuring. A very good programme!

Hi:)
I'm a final year LLB student in India and interested in doing an LLM from Freiburg.

- Is it possible for a new learner of German to attempt an LLM in Germany? I picked up french pretty easily in school.
- What are the LLM options offered by Freiburg?
- Where can I obtain more info on this in English? This site isnt responding

I'd be very grateful if anyone could respond to this.

Cheers!
Deepti.
