I'm an international graduate student in my first year as a PhD candidate. I'm looking to transfer schools for two reasons-
I had a hard time here with my health in jeopardy, so I'm looking to move to a school which is close to my extended family.
My research interests seem to be more aligned with a different school, which I had not considered when initially applying abroad.
I have a good research background in my field, and a four year bachelor's degree from a highly accredited institution in my home country. While I've taken all the first year courses necessary at my current school, I'm just finishing up and I haven't chosen a permanent advisor yet because I'd like to consider transferring.
Is this possible? If yes, could you guide me on how this process works? Thank you in advance.
