Where to Apply – which country…., which course to choose from and how?
There are several primary factors which must be considered in selecting the right program. These include the subject you like, the cost of study – Tuition Fees plus Living expenses involved, the language you will be taught in – are you fluent enough in a foreign language to take classes in it, the academic credit available for the course – its recognition and job prospects available overseas and in the Home Country after doing this program. Many people are looking for courses either to expand their knowledge of their primary field of study or to expand their knowledge of a particular language. If these are not concerns for you, it gives you more freedom. The next set of factors which also play a vital role in deciding a particular course will probably be location, timing, and duration. Location is a logistical issue, but it tends to have a direct impact on the language and subjects available.
