Hello everyone, Does anybody here attend a university in a German-speaking country or plan on doing so? Or is anybody from Germany/Austria/Switzerland or does anybody live there or have previously lived there? I'll be graduating in a couple years and I'm seriously considering graduate school in Germany or a german-speaking country. Why? I'm not sure exactly why...I speak only English and German so that limits my choices of places to go, and I guess I just want to try something new. And now I ask you: why should or shouldn't I? Do the public universities charge tuition for graduate school? Is it difficult to get into a graduate program in one of those countries? Is an american diploma equivalent to the the german diplom? Are there many research opportunities? Pros, cons of living/education/working/whatever in Germany/Austria/Switzerland? Any advice or comment is greatly appreciated, thanks.
