This is a very difficult question and indeed very subjective. Universities in Europe are very different than in the USA, where 'Research' is very important. That is the reason many foreign students prefer to study in USA - because it is much more research based and perhaps more 'creative'. I don't want to say that it is more difficult, because it is a personal opinion.

USA is also more expensive than Europe for tuition and cost of living. Canada, in my opinion, is more economical for tuition, housing and if you have long-term plans to stay in the country or eventually become an immigrant.

Canada is the only country right now which offers this facility.
