wow, it'd sure be nice to study abroad. I'm sitting here looking through Germany's state-sponsored university site, and they have one or two that offer a PhD. in Mathematics (edit: to international students). Perhaps I should consider that as an option. Save up enough, maybe get a student loan or two, and then go study there. Provided they approve my application, of course. It'd be hard work, getting my language skills up to snuff. And they say that student jobs are highly regulated (they flat-out say that if you're an international student, don't plan on working at all -- EU students can work, but it's not likely to provide much income) so I'd have to somehow come up with tons of fundage..

But damn. the experiance that would provide. 3-5 years studying mathematics in Germany. wow..

plus, I would only have to have enough funds for cost of living and books. They don't charge tuition.

I'll have to do further research to see how the degree is viewed internationally, of course. And this isn't even an option for the next 3 or more years anyway, while I'm prepping myself here.

Still makes for a nice dream to keep in the back of my mind, though. :)

It would be a good way to test out whether or not you really want to live in Germany, or if that's something you might reject after a short while.

One of my goals is to study abroad at some point...probably half of the schools I'm applying to for next fall (was supposed to be this fall, but there was too much CRAP to clear up from the first time I went to university) are not-the-US.

I don't have enough of a grasp of any language besides this one (which I'm not all that good at ;) to study anywhere but an English-speaking country. (I wish my Spanish was less rusty sometimes... :)

I have no degree now...ideally I'd like to do my bachelor's there. (at least.) :)

well, for germany check this website. It's the homepage (in english) for what seems to be their international student program.

granted, to stay in Germany long enough to actually complete the degree you'd have to speak the language. This might present a problem, but it'll likely be the same issue no matter where you go.

You'd love it no doubt.
