    Hi Guys,

    I'm new here, so apologises if this is in the wrong place or has been asked before.

    I recently finished my undergrad degree in computer science (1st class honours) and intend to peruse a PhD place in my home city of glasgow. However, before "jumping" into a PhD place i am really keen to travel, alone and see some of Europe.

    I know this is something quite frequently done by students in my position, but i am somewhat unsure of how to begin. I have considered working in different countries as i travel, but it seems it is very hard to find work in some countries without the correct paperwork. Additionally i do not speak any other languages besides English (something i hope to address soon)and i figure this would limit me, when looking for work in these countries.

    So presumably the best way to go about this, would be to fund the whole thing from savings and just treat it like a holiday?

    I will be travelling alone and despite seeing a lot of these countries before with my parents i have never done anything like this. So any thoughts/advice would be very much appreciated!


    I realise "europe" is vague; i had thought about france, italy and germany in particular.

    Regards

    -A
