Please search for the program entry criteria that are available in your chosen destination. Does it give a system that corresponds to the stage you wish to enter? Is it a degree or a diploma programme? Comprehend your choice, and pick accordingly. Search for required academic scores, too. Will you be able to score the minimum required marks? Apart from the English proficiency exam, will you be expected to take another examination? Do you think you can spare the required amount of time from your schedule to plan for more tests like GMAT, GRE or SAT?

If you can land one it can help to significantly reduce the cost of your studies. Check if you will still be able to work part-time while studying so you can comfortably handle your regular expenses and gain some professional experience as well.

Visa requirements and policies in your desired location- Review the requirements for student visa for the destination you are interested in. Every country has a specific set of rules to comply with and visa processing can often take longer than planned. Also, the cost of visa processing varies according to country. For example in the USA, acquiring visa for Muslim students can prove to be a challenge.
Lifestyle in your chosen destination- Lifestyle abroad would be profoundly different from India. The language, the culture, the food, the way of living daily life-all will change. This would also dramatically change the way of handling various circumstances. Try studying each destination's lifestyle to understand whether it lies in the alignment with your present lifestyle.
ROI of the degree from your chosen destination in India- It is normal to measure the return on investment as a student who will be investing a lot of money, effort and time into studying abroad. Will the destination offer you the sort of return on your investment that you would want? Will it get you ready for work?
