I am interested in moving to japan, but I have some logistic problems. First of all let me outline my current situation.
I am a 3rd year (last year of Bachelor) Computer Science student at University of Southampton (UK) and I am going to follow up with a Master degreein Machine Learning or Bioinformatics (with Machine Learning applied within). And after the Master I want to do a PhD in applied Machine Learning (preferably Physics or Biology). For more details about my technical expertise please see my LinkedIn profile.
Now comes the decision:
- Would I increase my chances of finding a job in Japan by doing a PhD there (University of Tokyo/ University of Kyoto)?
- If you your answer is yes to the last question, what Universitites or Research Institutes have the greatest reputation?
- Do you think it would be a good ideea to follow a Japanese Language School before/during the PhD?
- I was also thinking of doing the PhD in UK and then coming to Japan, finding a part time developer job and attend a Japanese Language School, what do you say?
Thank you very much for the support!
