Does anyone know much about the graduate programs in schools outside of the U.S. The only schools I know that have reputations are Cambridge and Oxford. I would appreciate it, if someone could provide me with information about the top schools in the U.K., or anywhere else in the world that speaks English. But mostly, I am curious about England, Scotland, and Ireland. Also, do you know about the financial aid they offer, because here graduate school should be free (at least my physics advisor said I was a good enough student for that to be true), and that is about all I can afford.

[edit] Also, if anyone here went from undergraduate studies in the U.S. to graduate school in the U.K., I would be interessted to know what sort of grades and what not were needed for admision. I have a 3.79/4 and I am a dual degree major in electrical engineering and physics with some research experience, but I'm not sure if that is enough for Oxbridge.

Yeah I've been wondering too if the gradschool being free thing is US only. I've never heard of comprehensive graduate assistance programs abroad. Usually it's full scholarship (i.e. fellowship) or nothing at all.

Here's some links to good UK university's for research:
http://www.imperial.ac.uk/P1323.htm" [Broken]
http://www.admin.cam.ac.uk/univ/gsprospectus/subjects/physics"
http://www2.warwick.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/science/physics/" [Broken]
http://www.york.ac.uk/depts/phys/gsp/" [Broken]
http://www.ucl.ac.uk/prospective-students/graduate-degrees/maps/physics-and-astronomy/index.shtml" [Broken]
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/postgraduate/caz/" then go down the list to physics.

I can't help you with the entry requirements but to see the fees go to the finance/fees links on the websites above.

Check out the Times university table http://www.timesonline.co.uk/section/0,,716,00.html"

Definitely worth applying I think with your gpa. Cambridge is a beautiful (if expensive) city.

Australian universities were also ranked highly on the Times worldwide university rankings.

Thanks for the link. I think Cambridge is a great town, but I have to admit Oxford is more beautiful.

Cambridge is a beautiful (if expensive) city.

That's the main issue. Any money I spend for graduate school will be loans, so I need to keep it within reason.
