    Can I get admission in Ph.D. in USA or European universities without good research experience?

    Hello! Sir.
    I desire to go for higher education abroad. I just completed my M.Sc. in Physics with specialization of Material Science. I would like to do Ph.d. in countries such as UK,USA,Germany,Japan etc. But I don't have any research experience. Is it possible for me to go direct for a Ph.d. abroad? Is it correct to take some research experience at national institutes? Please guide me step by step to achieve my goal.

    It is advisable to gain some experience in the research. This is one of the important areas that the universities lookout for. You need to first of all apply to the various research institutes. You may be required to clear the entrance exam for the same. You can apply for PH.d after gaining at least 2 years of experience. It is important that you have a good academic record. Most of the institutes look for candidates who have at least a first class through out their academic life. You will also need to appear for the GRE exam. Along with that some institutes do ask for the TOEFL score. You must check out the universities which offer courses in the area of your specialisation. Based on that apply to the universities.

    As to carry out a Ph.D from any of the universities in UK or USA candidates have to full fill certain criterions. One of the main requirements is to have a Masters degree in the relevant subject. Most of the US and UK countries take in international students who have a Masters level degree as well as equivalent qualification. It would be ideal if you get some good research experience before a Ph.D program. Or else you need to have exceptional academic track sheet to put forward. With a good research experience you will have more chances of getting selected for a Ph.D program. Another general criterion followed by most of the foreign university includes a language test. Applicants whose primary language isnít English will require a recognized English language certification to join Ph.D abroad. A Ph.D degree can be done many ways. This comprised doing a research work in any university. Students can also work as part time lectures and pursue Ph.D. Students can also do research project in private or sponsored research universities. Students who have the advantage of scholarship can bestow their entire attention to just the Ph.D program.

    Getting admission into PhD from abroad depends on the academic background, good GRE/TOEFL/ IELTS scores and also having reserch experience and publications is an added advantage.

    Someone told me, LOR makes all the difference, especially if the Professor is well known for his work, how true is this? Can they make such a BIG difference?
