Why you wanted to Study Abroad ?

- Are you looking for the best quality education in a specific Subject?
- Do you plan to complete the course and to spend some time for working Experience?
Once you decide on the above points its easy for you to shortlist the countries as each on the nations have its own immigration policies. Some countries offer you extra points for migration if you study there while some countries wanted you to come back after studies.

One important factor taken into consideration is the cost involved or tuition fee of the course. The tuition fee in each country is different from other. There are countries which offer you Free Education or with very less fee and there are countries like Australia and USA which is having high tuition fee. So based on your financial capability you should finalize the destination

A crucial one which is one of the most important one to be considered as any mistakes in this can cost you the visa. While all other points can only interrupt your studies, this one can even stop you flying there. Each country has its own policy for showing the funs for maintenance. For example New Zealand need to show an amount of NZ$ 15000 which is more than 6 months old while UK needs only 28 days old fund. In Canada you have to transfer the living expenses fund i.e around CAD$ 10200. So you have to make the final choice depend on whether you have fund available in your account or in your parents account.
Distance of Travel

Sometimes students doesn’t want to travel too far from home and wanted to be in a flying distance on maximum 12 hours. In that case locations like Europe, especially UK or Ireland comes first. Second tier countries like Malaysia and Singapore is also become popular while distance makes an impact in considering the location.
When it comes to Post Graduation, a good percentage of students wanted to apply with their family or spouse. Countries like UK, Canada, Australia, New Zealand gives an opportunity to apply with dependents while Ireland and most of European countries don’t entertain that.
