Can I pursue a PhD in physics from a US university, after doing my B.Sc. Physics Honours and M.Sc. Physics from an India

Postby androbada525 » Thu May 05, 2016 6:12 am

I want to be a theoretical physicist. I have great interest in astronomy and want to pursue the same. Because of lesser research opportunities in India, I want to move out to US in the future. I have just given my board exams. I intend to do my B.Sc. Physics Honours from India. I have read that most of the US universities don't accept the India's 3 year long Bachelor's degree in comparison to their 4 year long degrees. If I follow up my B.Sc. Honours degree with a M.Sc. degree, can I apply for PhD from leading US universities? I have also read that in some countries Masters and PhD degrees are funded by the government (like Canada). So, can I take this route of pursuing my B.Sc from India, followed by Masters in a country like Canada? If I also do my PhD from Canada, what are the chances of doing research at a good place in the US? Your guidance will be extremely valuable to me.

Of course you can do PhD in US after completing your Masters in India.I would advice you to concentrate on your academics right now. Finish your Bachelors and Masters with high grades. That must be your top priority. I would disagree with you that opportunities in India is restricted. There are many good institutes in India. You should also try the Indian entrance exams and take them seriously.
