I would like to apply for a research degree in ETH Zürich.Ok, in this case it will be rather hard for you to master German (because Cantonese/Chinese has no internal structure comparable to German). In this case I'd suggest to go for graduate studies to ETH Zurich (Master or PhD) where all lectures are in English.
A test in German? Is it a standard test like IELTS or TOEFL in English?But, don't they make you take a test of proficiency in German even if you are doing a course of study in english. I know for the Masters program which is taught in english they require that you pass a test in german.
If you do your PhD there, you are employed by the university and get paid. (between 50 000 und 80 000 CHF per annum)OH, sorry, I was thinking of UZH (university of zurich).
Yeah, I don't see anything about a a german test. But, going to this school is going to be expensive (just consider the cost of living in zurich alone).
The paid is very attractive, that's why I still get no response from my potential supervisor.If you do your PhD there, you are employed by the university and get paid. (between 50 000 und 80 000 CHF per annum)
But I never heard that someone had to do a German test when they want to do a PhD (for Undergraduate this may be the case). But you need to do one if you apply for German/Swiss/Austrian citizenship.
