While over 200,000 international students came to study in the U.S. last year, around 262,000 American preferred to do it in another country, resulting in a fourfold increase from two decades ago, according to a research by the International Institute of Education. However, looking for a good study program overseas is far from being a simple task, it takes a lot of time and energy to get all the information required to make the right choice between universities.
