¿Quieres estudiar becado en Alemania? Aquí todo lo que debes saber

¿Quieres estudiar becado en Alemania? Aquí todo lo que debes saber

Ciencia

Jorge Aguilar, asesor académico de Estudios de Pre y Posgrado de la Embajada de Alemania en Lima, informó que ese país tiene una serie de becas para que los peruanos puedan seguir una maestría o un doctorado con la facilidad además de estudiar el idioma alemán durante seis meses previo al inicio de sus clases.

En los “Martes Educativos”, que se transmite por el Facebook de la Agencia Andina, Aguilar explicó que en el 2016 alrededor de 200 peruanos fueron beneficiados con una beca para estudiar posgrado en ese país, donde existen 19,000 programas de estudio (de las cuales mil son únicamente en inglés).
“Hay un paquete de financimiento que se ofrece para doctorados y maestrías, que incluye además el estudio del alemán previamente. El becado va a estudiar a Alemania, primero aprende bien el idioma y luego hace sus estudios de posgrado. Eso ayuda mucho para las oportunidades laborales tanto en Europa como en Perú”, anotó.
Alemania tiene actualmente casi 300,000 ciudadanos extranjeros cursando estudios de pregrado y posgrado. Las becas que se ofrecen en la Embajada en Lima no son para pregrado sino para posgrado. No obstante, muchos extranjeros realizan sus estudios en universidades alemanas y luego postulan a una beca para un postgrado.
“Mucha gente se ha enterado de que estudiar un pregrado en Alemania es muy económico en relación a las universidades particulares de sus países, pero eso sí deben saber el idioma. En promedio cuesta unos 720 euros mensuales. En algunos casos optan por estudiar allí con su dinero y luego postulan a una beca para la maestría”, refirió.
 

Tipos de becas y requisitos 

De acuerdo con Aguilar, hay diferentes tipos de becas: las que se ofrecen en cooperación con el Estado peruano (donde sí se exige el retorno de los becarios al Perú), becas en alianza universidades peruanas y becas propias del gobierno alemán. “Depende del perfil académico, las oportunidades son grandes para estudiar”.
Hay becas que cubren la totalidad de los estudios durante la permanencia en Alemania; otras incluyen además la manutención, gastos de estadía y seguro de salud; y una tercera opción son aquellas que cubren la totalidad de los gastos en que incurran los estudiantes peruanos en ese país, lo que puede extenderse incluso a la esposa (o) e hijos.
En el caso el interesado quiera estudiar una maestría el límite de edad es 42 años y para doctorado no hay límite.
Los egresados con mejores notas tienen mayor opción para acceder a una beca, pero cada caso es analizado por el Sistema de Selección de Becarios de la embajada en Lima. Igualmente, es determinante la carta en la cual se sustenta las razones por la cuales se quiere estudiar en Alemania.
Aguilar pidió a los peruanos interesados en estudiar en alguna de las 400 universidades existentes en Alemania enviar sus consultas al correo ku-20@lima.diplo.de.

Step inside the mind of the young Stephen Hawking as his PhD thesis goes online for first time

Step inside the mind of the young Stephen Hawking as his PhD thesis goes online for first time

Ciencia

Stephen Hawking’s PhD thesis, Properties of expanding universes’, has been made freely available to anyone, anywhere in the world, after being made accessible via the University of Cambridge’s Open Access repository, Apollo.

The 1966 doctoral thesis by the world’s most recognisable scientist is the most requested item in Apollo with the catalogue record alone attracting hundreds of views per month. In just the past few months, the University has received hundreds of requests from readers wishing to download Professor Hawking’s thesis in full.

To celebrate Open Access Week 2017, Cambridge University Library’s Office of Scholarly Communication has today announced Professor Hawking’s permission to make his thesis freely available and Open Access in Apollo. By making his PhD thesis Open Access, anyone can now freely download and read this historic and compelling research by the then little-known 24-year-old Cambridge postgraduate.

Professor Hawking said: “By making my PhD thesis Open Access, I hope to inspire people around the world to look up at the stars and not down at their feet; to wonder about our place in the universe and to try and make sense of the cosmos. Anyone, anywhere in the world should have free, unhindered access to not just my research, but to the research of every great and enquiring mind across the spectrum of human understanding.

“Each generation stands on the shoulders of those who have gone before them, just as I did as a young PhD student in Cambridge, inspired by the work of Isaac Newton, James Clerk Maxwell and Albert Einstein. It’s wonderful to hear how many people have already shown an interest in downloading my thesis – hopefully they won’t be disappointed now that they finally have access to it!”

Dr Arthur Smith, Deputy Head of Scholarly Communication, said: “Open Access enables research. By eliminating the barriers between people and knowledge we can realise new breakthroughs in all areas of science, medicine and technology. It is especially important for disseminating the knowledge acquired during doctoral research studies. PhD theses contain a vast trove of untapped and unique information just waiting to be used, but which is often locked away from view and scrutiny.

“From October 2017 onwards, all PhD students graduating from the University of Cambridge will be required to deposit an electronic copy of their doctoral work for future preservation. And like Professor Hawking, we hope that many students will also take the opportunity to freely distribute their work online by making their thesis Open Access. We would also invite former University alumni to consider making their theses Open Access, too.”

While the University is committed to archiving all theses it is often a struggle gaining permission to open up historic theses. With the online publication of Professor Hawking’s thesis, Cambridge now hopes to encourage its former academics – which includes 98 Nobel Affiliates – to make their work freely available to all.

To make more of the University’s theses Open Access in Apollo, the Office of Scholarly Communication and Cambridge University Library will digitise the theses of any alumni who wish to make their dissertation Open Access. Interested alumni should contact thesis@repository.cam.ac.uk

At a recent event to celebrate the 1,000th research dataset in Apollo, Dr Jessica Gardner, Director of Library Services, said: “Cambridge University Library has a 600-year-old history we are very proud of. It is home to the physical papers of such greats as Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin. Their research data was on paper and we have preserved that with great care and share it openly on line through our digital library.

“But our responsibility now is today’s researcher and today’s scientists and people working across all disciplines across our great university. Our preservation stewardship of that research data from the digital humanities across the biomedical and that is a core part of what we now do.”

Apollo is home to over 200,000 digital objects including 15,000 research articles, 10,000 images, 2,400 theses and 1,000 datasets. The items made available in Apollo have been accessed from nearly every country in the world and in 2017 have collectively received over one million downloads.

Professor Hawking’s 1966 doctoral thesis ‘Properties of expanding universes’ is available in Apollo at https://doi.org/10.17863/CAM.11283 or in high resolution on Cambridge Digital Library at https://cudl.lib.cam.ac.uk/view/MS-PHD-05437/1
