    Thanks for your answer. I'm seriously considering a route to at least a PhD, and possibly academia if Lady Luck smiles upon me. I might look at PhDs in Europe, being a dirty continental foreigner myself - a slightly less cutthroat market sounds very lucrative. Just gotta get these bloody A Levels sorted first...

    Best of luck in your PhD
    Thanks! Just pop me a PM if you ever have questions later down the road.

    As far as I'm aware, 99% of research in science is conducted in English; so yes, my work is entirely in English. Ironically, English students are at an advantage to the natives because they need not demonstrate their adeptness in the English language (which is a very necessary requirement).

    P.S. You might find this thread to be of interest: https://mathoverflow.net/questions/2...ther-languages

    From that above mentioned link: "number of research articles submitted in a language other than English":
    Since 2000: 70K in Chinese, 66K in Russian, 21K in French, 5K in Spanish and Japanese each, 4K in German and Italian each, 1K in Portuguese. Out of 1,358,623 total.
    This backs up my claim.
