Talking Finally getting all qualified and whatnot

Found out on Wednesday that I'm going to be getting a 1st in my MPhys degree! :D

Now looking for some interesting PhDs. Basically anything involving antimatter and/or space. :)

Not sure how it works with edumacation over seas. I'd be interested in something in America, but the barrier to entry there seems much higher than for the EU. I'd have to take the GRE test and then sort out lots of weird immigration/visa nonsense.

For now I've made inquiries about a couple of PhDs, one at Manchester, one at UCL.

Yeah, that's where I found them. :)

Been subscribed for a while and check for interesting maths/physics/computing/engineering PhDs.

I think the period specified was 4 years, whether it will take the full 4 I'm unsure. I'll be working with Dr. S Grey and several other students at UCL.

Specifically the PhD is related to simulating the orbits of space debris with all the weird and wonderful forces that might have an effect.
