  2. 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)
  3. 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  )

  7. Hello everyone,   I am an international student from South East Asia and I am planning to take my master degree in Germany. I did my bachelor in economics and have 2.5 years experiences in the field of Supply Chain and Business Analyst. I applied for WS 17/18 and I got admission to the below universities: 1. Uni of Cologne, MSc. Supply Chain Management, with a double degree with Aalto Uni in Helsinki (Finland), MSc. Information Management, which therefore I'll have to go to Finland for at least 1 semester. I think the study program would composed of 20% IT, 80% Business.  2. Uni of Erlangen-Nuremberg, MSc. Information Systems, 70% IT, 30% Business.   What matters most to me is the job opportunity during and after my study (internship/full-time) with limited German knowledge.   I am more interested in the MSc. Information Systems because it has a IT hardcore focus, which may give me higher chances for employment. Plus, I prefer working as IT Business Analyst later on as I am rather an introvert, so the 2. choice seems to fit me well.    However, as I used to work in Supply Chain, for me this field is not too bad and I also can do whatever job I might be offered. The city of Cologne and this double degree opportunity are also more attractive than Erlangen/Nuremberg.   Therefore, I really need an advice from you guys with a foreigners' point of view. The key importance is to find a job after study; thus, which field may offer better chances - Supply Chain or IT Business Analyst? I did ask some of my German friends and without hesitation they answered Cologne, but they may not understand that as I cannot speak German fluently, the situation is very different.    I need to give the answer next week so I hope to hear something from you. Thank you all.

  10. Hello All!   I enrolled in a Bachelor at HS Mannheim in Sep 2016, but I changed my mind and decided to apply for Uni Leipzig this Winter Semester. I got the admission offer. Now here comes my problems.   Q1 What must I do for my student visa? Notes: I come from a non-EU country, which does not enjoy visa-free in EU, so I converted my student visa to the student Aufenthaltstitel (the electronic card).   Q2 I have considered the following bureaucratic things that I must do for this move. Could you please tell me if anything might be missing, or if any potential troubles that I should look out for? 1. Exmatriculation at HS Mannheim. 2. Abmeldung in Mannheim??? (Anmeldung in Leipzig is ofc a must.) 3. Do I need to do anything with my TK health insurance? 4. Anything about my Deutsche Bank Konto? 5. I will tell the GEZ (radio fee) thingy that I change my address. Any pitfall in this maybe? 6. Anything related to Rentenversicherung (pension?) / tax department (Bundeszentralamt für Steuern) maybe? 7. Since I am moving between 2 states, any interstate-specific troubles to look out for?     I am looking forward to any opinions on this topic. It seems that there is not much existing discussion on the Internet. I will update my progress regularly. Hopefully this can become an elaborate thread for similar situations.   Thanks in advance!
