Doctorat in Statele Unite

Doctorat in Statele Unite

Ghid practic pentru aspirantul la doctorat in Statele Unite – Mihai Budiu.
Din cuprins:

  • Sistemul american de studii universitare
  • Admiterea la doctorat
  • Viata in Statele Unite: Asigurarea Medicala, Birocratia de inceput, Dreptul de munca, Taxele, Legaturi utile

“Principala mea audienta (cel putin la ea ma gindesc acum) este constituita din studentii care, ca si mine, au terminat studiile (facultatea) in tara, au obtinut diploma si vor sa plece pentru studii doctorale in Statele Unite.

Presupunind ca l-am scris bine, documentul se poate insa dovedi util si celor care vor sa faca studiile de baza in Statele Unite; putine sectiuni sunt specifice numai doctorandului.

In fine, daca muzele s-au indurat de mine, poate ca parti din acest document vor trezi interesul oricarui ins care vrea sa stie cum merge invatamintul in alta parte decit la noi.” (Mihai Budiu)
