Hello everyone, My name is Sid and I am about to finish my engineering degree in Mechanical Engineering. Hopefully, I will be graduating with an Upper Second Honors. I am interested to study Physics now, specifically Theoretical HEP. I have decided to apply to IPSP (Internatioanl Physics Studies Program) at University of Leipzig (Universitaet Leipzig). I have few questions in my mind before applying: 1. As University of Leipzig is not very well known and not a well reputed name in Physics, does this mean that the quality of the program they teach will be bad? 2. If I graduate from a very low ranked university, would that decrease my chances of getting into the top ranked graduate schools? 3. If anyone has graduated from University of Leipzig or is a current student there, kindly tell the the situation over there. As in how is the Physics department at the university and how satisfactory is the program.
