    Italy or Britain for me, because bf is from Italy and he doesn't like that UK left EU, so he most likely moving back after university here... he got the impression that all brexiters are colony wannabes, racists, bigots, ignorances, aargorant, anti-immigration, anti-LBGT, nationalist (when its only 0.5% crackpots)
    Yeh, out of Britain and Italy, which of the two was a Fascist state within living memory. GG boyfriend.

    Germany (or/including Austria, depending on your view).

    Mainly because I dislike the UK, but like Western Europe. France is full of French people, so that's off the list. Netherlands, Denmark and other Scandinavian countries aren't options because they speak a heavily *******ised version of German that seems harder to understand.

    Germany: I have family there, and honestly its just like a better version of the UK. Plus its not likely to leave the EU, and they drive on the right.

    Austria: its like a smaller, slightly worse version of Germany, except they have the alps.
    'France is full of French people' haha

    You seem to really like Germany! Go for it! I personally couldn't be comfortable living anywhere outside the Anglosphere but I suppose I'd learn languages quick if I were forced to live outside it.

    How strong is your German? Are you fluent?

    I just hope people are aware that unless you pretty much have a job lined up, it is literally a lottery on whether or not you can move to a country like the US. And it's around £2500 per application, which is non-refundable.

    Europe is different though, it will be much easier, even when we are't part of the EU.

    This sounds cheesy but it is true, I've dreamt about living in New York ever since I was a child.
    My current plan is to go and work there for a couple of years after I graduate

    How about you?
    That's been my dream since I was a kid too! However it's pretty much impossible to move to the US unless you work in IT and even then its like a 10 year wait for a green card

    That's why I'm prepared to work really hard at uni for a first and make links left, right and centre!

    Maybe I'm being too idealistic

    Russia. I love the culture and it's a country which has a growing economy and a strong leader. With the collapse of the US empire and their petrol dollar being imminent, Russia and China look set to take over as the world's two super powers. The US is bound to strike out at them and drag the UK with it, so I want to be on the right side of the border when they do.

    I'm hoping to go on a year abroad to the states and meet someone so I could stay permanently lol I don't know who has the wiser plan especially since bachelor degree graduates have to wait at least 7 years to get their green card then a possible 5 years (if you want to) for citizenship. I'm hoping my idea sorta goes to plan, if not I'd seriously consider paying someone to marry me for a green card because I honestly can't see myself having a future in this country.

    Canada, USA(California), Barbados, New Zealand, South Korea or Japan.

    Basically anywhere where Science careers are expanding and are full of opportunities, which the UK doesn't have at the moment and It's going to get worse now that we are leaving the EU; who helps with the sciences, in Europe especially the UK.
    That sounds a lot like my plans! I feel Canada might not necessarily have the potential for STEM career growth (both pay and no. of workers) but has fewer political/cultural problems that seem to come hand-in-hand with the US like its obsession/fantastism with guns and religion.

    The pay is good for Chemical/Material/Nuclear Engineers in the US though (starting salary approx 60,000 to 70,000 USD typical).

    I'm seriously considering Shanghai and certain rich provinces of China too, they're really investing in developing the nation's scientific enterprises to outcompete the US and the Chinese government has considerably deep pockets to do mega research/industrial projects.

    France/Germany invests heavily into science and shouldn't be facing a major economic crisis anytime soon, might be worth looking into before Brexit happens.

    Norway is the most beautiful place on Earth, I dream of having a house there, but not to live, just to vacate every few months.

    I don't want to stay there permanently, I love the UK and would build up my family here

    Haha that seems like a decent plan, but what if you get caught on the terms of sham marriage?

    Yep. Moving to an EU member state after I've finished my degree (if the EU in its current form is still around of course).

    I see myself as, and I am proud to be, a citizen of Europe, I don't belong in the UK anymore. I always wanted to move abroad but it was more of a pipedream to be honest... But the outcome of the EU referendum has convinced me to actually do it.

    I'm eyeing up countries where I can speak or am learning to speak the language, or countries where I have close friends. So for me that's Germany, Austria, The Netherlands and Finland. I'd probably consider moving to somewhere like Poland or Hungary too.

    Yeah, smoking is a much bigger issue in Germany, although its actually pretty good compared to other mainland European countries, like France or Poland.

    Does Google Translate count?

    My German is very weak. I can get the gist of most written German, and German if its spoken a little slower than usual and without a strong accent - e.g. I could probably get the gist of what an English speaker says in German - but even a German would laugh if I tried to speak the language!

    Thankfully, I still have a few years to improve.

    USA or Canada, looks like it'll be about six years time so hopefully neither Trump or Hillary are in power.
    You never know Hillary or Trump might win re-election
