Is the country where you take your PhD especially relevant?
My former MSc supervisor says Spain PhDs are shit tier, but honestly, I think he might be biased and might have interest in keeping me to apply for a PhD with him in my country. That is pretty much out of the question, since I want to either go abroad, or stay in a R&D position in a company as I am currently.
The situation is as follows: I currently have two pending applications in my field for Spain, one I need to give a yes or no answer pretty soon, and the other awaiting a final response (both of which my supervisor is discouraging heavily), and one awaiting any response for now in the Netherlands.
I don't necessarily need help deciding, but I'd like to know your opinion on how the country affects the quality of your PhD and in what way.
