I am a Chemical Engineering Masters student from India and I wish to pursue a PhD degree from some reputed US or European Universities.
I have heard from my seniors and from internet searches that generally good universities do not admit students who directly apply for a PhD after a Masters degree from India and expect them to take a Masters degree from their university before going for PhD.
It maybe that such instances would have occurred for some particular cases and cannot be generalized, but as I said that it is just what I have heard over from people and I wonder if it is true.
I have been searching all over the internet regarding this but quite a few websites exist where this question has been answered convincingly. So I thought to post it here in stack exchange so that I can get some better answers. Any help would be appreciated.
