Hey everyone, I was looking into international PhD programmes in Germany and was just curious if anyone had any experience in these. Instruction is entirely in English, although German language courses are required (something I wouldn't mind). The particular schools I am interested in are in Stuttgart and Leipzig. Are there any advantages / disadvantages to completing your PhD abroad? Also, I'm not particularly worried about returning to the states for job prospects. I have family in Germany and would be quite content to stay there after obtaining my PhD. Thanks in advance for your replies.
