How difficult is it to get a German Visa for a second Master degree in the same field but with advanced courses as a prerequisite for Ph.D.?

  • I joined my first degree very late after 1 and a half month from when the course started and my institute had a continuous assessment system. I was left so far behind when I enrolled and I had backlogs because of this. But I made it up for that in my second year with my research project, thesis, and paper – user611434 May 25 '17 at 8:06

    I don't understand why you want to study a second masters degree in the same field even after reading your comment above. Please note that if I have this question, then the officer who issues the visa could have the same question i.e. why do you want to study the masters degree in the same field again.. – scaaahu May 25 '17 at 8:17

    My first choice was actually PhD. I approached some of the reputed Professors in United States and Germany who lead funded research in my area of interest. The response I got from them was that my research so far is just a small step into the area and that I need more expertise for a Ph.D. The courses in Germany are not exactly the same. They are much advanced. I wanted to step up my game raise my bar to get into a good Ph.D. program. – user611434 May 25 '17 at 8:29
  • @scaaahu ... and the research and project work in the university I am accepted to are so amazing and could provide the opportunity for the expertise I need. – user611434 May 25 '17 at 8:36
  • Wait, so you already got accepted to a German university an are now only worrying about visa? – Dirk May 26 '17 at 8:45
