Hello,

I am a geology student at the university of Copenhagen.

I am very interested in specializing in planetary science, but in Copenhagen the university doesn't offer specialization within this field.

Therefore I am curious about learning what I should do and what universities will be good to attend.

I am at my bachelor degree now, but will have to apply for foreign universities in about 6 months and would like to prepare.

Do you have any suggestions as to what I should do or which courses will be most beneficial?

Best regards

@Lapetus,
Are you looking for Grad schools or just transferring to a more relevant Undergrad college?
