I am a student pursuing a dual degree program of B.Tech. plus M.Tech. in biotechnology, which is a 5-year program. So, I want to directly apply for Ph.D. in foreign universities.
My question is that- do the foreign universities let directly enter the Indian students into Ph.D. program or first it is necessary to take a MS program and then Ph.D. Program (in case of the dual degree)? And accordingly, what should be the preparations of / for the exams (GRE/ TOEFL)? Should I take coaching or self preparation ?
Also, is it right that biotech field has more scope and opportunities in abroad as compared to India?
Also, please name some universities which offer Ph.D. Programs (and MS program also, if first MS is to be done from there) in USA and Australia (with funding programs)?
