  1. I am interested in experiences of non-German parents regarding the cultural identity of children who attend a local German school.   We don't speak good German (we are both Spanish speakers) and we are choosing between a local German primary school and the European school in Munich.   We would like our children to pick up a healthy mix of cultural habits, become bilingual and speak/write well in both languages, but we are a bit afraid of full immersion in the German system. We won't be able to help much with homework, have our doubts about the early gymnasium/realschule evaluation and we are worried about cultural connection with us in the future. On the other hand, the European school may be easier, but they might not integrate fully and perhaps their German will not reach the required level in case they choose to stay in Germany in the future and study here.   Any experiences in this regards are appreciated. Juan.

  7. Moving above TV-L E10

    Good Morning All,    I currently have a bachelors degree, with a number of technical certificates in tow (like systems engineer certificates issued by HUPX, MCSE by microsoft, etc.) I also have 20 years experience in my field.    My experience here in Germany is; regardless of whether I work in Academia or Corporate, my education (versus my experience) is the limiting factor in my salary. As a B.Sci. both the academic world (governed by TV-L) and the corporate world (governed by CAT - or maybe just basing their salaries n the same guidelines) have always been offered employment in the high end of E10. However, this is far less than I was making in other countries where experience is more valued than certificates.    QUESTION:  Since I want to stay in Germany, what are the MINIMUM educational requirements I would need to move up to each level (I.e. E11, E12, etc). What level on the TV-L scale would a Master of Sci. be? Are there certified/accredited education levels BETWEEN a B.Sci and a full M.Sci that would bump me up in the scale? Are accredited, smaller post-graduate certificates acceptable for bumping up my scale?   SIDE QUESTION:  HOW ARE B.Sci, or M.Sci accredited in Germany? In the U.S. it's by regionally accreditation institutions.    I ask mainly to be able to identify accredited v. NON-accredited programs here in Germany and elsewhere (I.e. online)
  8. Hallo,    I currently have a B.Sci in the biosciences (computational biology and bioinformatics) as well as a slew of technical certifications in IT and programming. I'm currently working a 2 year contract at a major university in the biosciences.    I noticed during my job hunt, that all my salary offers were nearly identical, and seemed to be based on the ** tabelle-TV-L **...even for private industry jobs. My understanding is; that in Germany, your salary is based mostly on your certifications and degrees - with experience simply determining whether you are at the top or bottom of a given range.    My question is then; what advanced degree should I get in order to remain in the biosciences (probably computational biosciences...although this is not mandatory) but increase my salary into the next category?  I realize that, theoretically, ANY masters would bump my salary based on the above concept. BUT, what degree I get also determines my ability to get a job (having a B.Sci in Molecular Biotechnology and a Masters in Art History will probably not land me any job offers at all  )
