The choice of country depends on the budget as well as personal interest of the student. Mostly all countries now are offering a very wide range of courses. A student must first of all choose which country offers him the best choice of course as well as provides him/her employment opportunities. Example: Taking the financial aspect into consideration the courses in UK are only for 1 year and that cuts down the cost of studies substantially when compared to USA / Australia. Pyramid Overseas Education Consultants and Immigration helps you make this analysis and then zero-in on a country that suits you best.

All the countries have university rankings; but this may not be the only distinguishing feature for a university. A university that suits the student best would be the one that: » Is accredited by the local Accreditation Council » Offers the course that a student is looking for » Accepts students qualifications for the interested course » Is situated in a location that student is interested in Once these 4 points are checked with, the student can then look into the financial part.

Generally, in most universities and colleges in UK and USA, there are two intakes, mainly in September and Jan/Feb; while in Germany the intakes are in April and October. It is advisable to procure admission 3 months prior to the intake month. This ensures a smooth process and a comfortable and timely preparation. That apart if the admission date is delayed, the seats in the university might get full and you may have to let-go of a golden opportunity and then compromise with either university selection or tuition fees or quality of education. To avoid all this we advice you to make your choices and decisions well in time.
