I'm currently studying for my Bachelor's degree in Computer Science in Germany. I've noticed that UK Master's programs, even at such prestigious universities as Oxford or Edinburgh, only offer 1 year Master's programs for full time study. In Germany, on the other hand, Master's are usually 2 years / 4 semesters.
I was wondering how this is perceived in academia. Say for a professor in the US offering a PhD position, would he expect people from the German two-year program to be better at their subject? (Assuming grades are similar).
