Hello everybody! I have two questions: 1. What universities should be considered when looking for a place to study for a MSc? The criteria are high level scholars, possibly working in theoretical high energy physics, and a possibility to get funding. 2. I'm currently studying for a BSc (4 years full time, Physics) in the very best university of some unheard-of small country in the east of the EU. My grades are very good. However, I have no publications and haven't won any international physics competitions. What is the chance to join (let's say) University of Cambridge? Does it depend mostly on my BSc-thesis (it will be completed after the application deadline), some kind of interview or am I expecting too much? These things are not too hard to find out when applying for undergraduate studies, though the universities do not state their expectations for MSc or Phd that explicitly. Thank you for any comments.
