Choosing a university abroad is not an easy task!
There are more than thousands of universities in every part of the world, and
most of these universities are good. But the truth is you can choose only one of
them. And the one university you choose should be your most logical and
practical choice. Although it is advisable to take expert guidance while
shortlisting your university, these are some key factors you should consider if
you wish to do it yourself.
The most dominant factor to consider is whether that university is offering
your desired course or not. Identify your passion, strengths, and weaknesses
