The very thought of Studying abroad generates great amount of excitement. The Question of where to study abroad is a tricky one,  with endless number of options being available,  with each destination having its  unique selling propositions pertaining to type of program offered , post  study job opportunities, permanent residence opportunities  to note a few, giving room for confusion. Here are six questions to consider before choosing a study destination abroad.

  • Is the destination best for the course I am choosing?

This is a question that student intending to study abroad should ask themselves, though study destinations offer a range of programs, they have their unique selling propositions like USA, which is known world over for its MBAs and Master programs in computers, bio technology, medicine etc to mention a few, whereas UK is known the world over for its arts and humanities  programs and Sweden and Germany for engineering courses etc.  It is important to choose the country that is best for the course you intend to pursue, based on different parameters like the educational system of the country, nature of the institutions, teaching methods adopted etc

  • What is the medium of instruction?

This is of prime importance, as deciding on the medium of instruction; narrows does your search for study destinations.  If English is your preferred medium of instruction, USA, UK, Australia, Canada can be ideal choice, though cost may be on the higher side.  Countries like Germany, Sweden etc are also slowly taking up their due positions and are being taken note of for their top rated programs with comparatively low tuition fees. A host of other European and South east countries are also gaining prominence for their quality programs, especially medicine studies, which are offered in English as well in the respective national language.

  •  How difficult is the entry and visa requirement of the study destination of your choice?

Admission requirements and visa requirements are things,  one should keep in mind before deciding on the study destination, though no effort should be  spared to  gain entry to the best institution possible in the country of your choice,  this is where your educational qualifications, back log history, Marks, language proficiency  test grades etc  are taken in to account. Be realistic in choosing a destination depending on the strength of your profile and where entry is possible and visa formalities are less cumbersome and time consuming.

  •  What is the value of the qualification offered? Is it recognized worldwide and in my country?

Acceptability of the qualification is a crucial factor in deciding where to study, as you are investing precious time and money. There should not be any laxity in ensuring that the university or institution selected is a credible one and its qualification are accepted globally and back home in your country. The study destination can seem to be attractive with liberal entry requirements, economical fees and scholarships etc but all that must not take precedence over the credibility and the acceptability of the qualification offered.

  •  Does the destination opted fit my budget?

Finance is an important factor in deciding the destination of study. One has to realize about the cost of education he / she will have to bear for the entire period of study, which should include the tuition fees, boarding fees, food, travel etc.  Though one may gain student loan or scholarship, getting to know the realistic figure about the options, one have in mind is important in deciding which destination to choose.

  • How good is the destination with regard to employability?

This is a factor most students and parents overlook when selecting study destination.  In fact the return of investment aspect needs to take precedence over the affordability part  as destination with excellent economy and greater economic avenues might seem on the expensive side, but offer  great career opportunities for pass outs ,  as the industry  in these country offer internships, training and placements in their areas of study which is vital in gaining a job soon after studies, so the return on investment is rather fast rather than options for a economical study destination with poor or mediocre prospect of gaining a job soon after course completion.
