There are many factors that one should concentrate on while making a study abroad decision.
According to Mr. Gigeo of IMTP consultancy one important factor that has to be considered while planning to study abroad is the academic score that a student gets and the average score needed to gain admission in a reputed institution. If a student aspires to get into a top-ranking institution abroad the student has to score well. 
Secondly it is the financial front. Today the internet provides a wealth of information to students who wish to study abroad. Anyone who seeks information on going abroad can search the respective university's website for all facts especially the ones relating to fee structure and living expenses. Students should find out whether they are eligible for scholarships and can meet living expenses and university admission expenses. The possibility of getting a job after completing the studies is a big selection factor for students who are looking for suitable courses.

While applying for a student visa it is mandatory to offer proof of financial capability. These are the major criteria according to him. 
Choosing a particular course depends a lot on the students’ interest in the subject. One can use various guidelines from websites like Hotcourses India that help students to study abroad. Higher education ranking websites will help one to understand the universities and their rankings. 
Today social networks play a key role. Facebook and Linkedin will help candidates to build contacts with students who are already studying abroad. These contacts will help one to get a better understanding of the available scholarships and part time working opportunities. There are a lot of consultants available in the market today. Students can also take inputs from them and find out if their choice is right.
Another area where one could find a lot of information would be the embassies. A student can enroll and get the necessary details and valuable information. Today education-fairs happen in almost every city. Students can visit such fairs and take proper advice.
