Doing a PhD abroad – in France

Do you think about continuing your scientific career after your Master’s thesis, but you are unsure if you should take the risk to go abroad? On this site you will find information on my experience starting a PhD in France – how do you apply for a position abroad? Are there social and academic differences to the country I grew up in (Germany)? Can you start a PhD without knowing the countries language? Which bureaucratic steps do you need to take? Why should should you leave your country in the first place?

Besides information revolving around  doing a PhD abroad, you will find pictures and my personal experiences with the country, the people and the city I study in: Montpellier, in the south of France, right at the Mediterranean Sea.

If you have question I don’t answer, critique or suggestions, feel free to contact me via the contact form! I am happy to help if you are still undecided if going abroad is the right thing for you to do.
