Hi Everyone,

I hope you can help with our question. My niece is about to start the last year in Physics at USB in Venezuela. She is currently involved in an optics project for the University of Rio in Brazil and has outstanding marks.

She is allowed to do her last year in some abroad universities and she’d like to take advantage of this opportunity. She was provided with a list of universities to choose from, but we don’t really have any knowledge on their background. I was hoping to connect with people in the area who could provide some insight as to which want would be more suitable to pursue her studies. Any comments are appreciated and thanks in advance.

Here is the list:

Karlsruhe has a world class reputation. The others, not so much. Lund and Louvain might be the next rung down.

That said, the undergrad physics curriculum is pretty standard, so it's not crazy to decide based on where she would like to spend a year.

I'm suprised to see Poland on the list :>

AGH got great reputation in Poland, so it's wise not to reject it only because it's not well knew worldwide.

And Krakow is probably most beautiful Polish City.

It's "practical" university, not "theoretical".

For example, there's no theoretical physics, but medical or technical.
