Going to Europe for Grad School

  1. Jun 11, 2009 #1
    I will be going into my senior year next year and intend on going to graduate school for physics. My field will be either particle physics or astrophysics most likely. Because of my interest in travelling, I have been considering looking for graduate schools in Europe in addition to the US. I feel this could be a good experience for me, and would be an opportunity for me to see more culture and possibly get a different kind of education than I'm used to. However, I have a few concerns.

    The first concern is an issue with practicality. I'm not sure that I would be able to get the same kind of funding if I go out of the country that I could get if I stayed, having my tuition paid and getting a yearly stipend to live off of. Does anyone know if you can still get this kind of funding at a foreign institution?

    Also, does the location of your graduate school have a big effect on where you are likely to be employed? Would an education in Europe mean that I should also look for employment there?
