I'm applying to some Universities in the UK, namely U. of Warrick , U. Manchester and U. of York. They all have good research groups but they do adress different topics.
Warrick has Symplectic Geometry, Manchester has Supermanifolds and York has Harmonic maps.
The process of sending an application is quite tedious and stressfull , getting the transcripts, translating them, getting letters of recommendation, looking for scholarships , oh and then there are the English examinations.
I took the IELTS test last Thursday, it took all morning but I hope I do ok.
Hopefully I hear back from these Universities in the weeks to come...
