The main reason behind their choice is that the Indian job market appreciates a degree from a top international university more compared to an Indian’s Bachelor’s or Master’s degree. Additionally, universities from several countries provide top quality higher education, far better facilities and most importantly, focus more on research than Indian universities.
Here’s probably a good reason that most of the world is interested in spending their study abroad time in one of the following ten countries. Whether because of price: service ratio, the behaviour of the locals, world-renowned education standards, or a special landscape you can’t find anywhere else on the planet, these are the countries to study abroad if you’re ready for a good time with your education pursuits :
Italy is a consistent place for studying overseas. Italy offers you delicious food, great hospitality and dynamic culture.

Also, Italy has the best weather, cinematic landscapes, iconic historical sites in every corner from Greek to Roman ruins to remnants of World War IICons: Not learning the national language makes difficult in interaction with the local. It becomes hard for you to mix in the Italian culture.
Spain has a vibrant culture with historical festivals, siestas, and flamenco dancers. The country has famous castles, museum and churches.

Cons: Some prior French language study is highly recommended, even if you chose to enrol in a study program taught in English. There are occasional union protests which shut the country down.

Pros: It is a great place to study business, sciences, engineering and technology. Also, it’s a great place for some of the world’s biggest companies that offer academic internshipsCons: One should learn German as many programs offer in the German language while some courses are taught in English.
From snorkelling in the Great Barrier Reef to hiking in the Outback and exploring metropolitan Sydney, thousands of students fly south to visit the land under Australia. And feel like they’re on top of the world.
Pros: Australia is home to some of the best universities in the world. Here, students can study practically every major, but star topics include business, humanities, and all of the science fields. In your free time, get a tan, chase some wild critters, and hit those Bondi Blue waters. Cons: Being in the southern hemisphere, Australia’s academic calendar is the opposite of North America/Europe. This can be a bummer for students with seasonal commitments back home (such as sports and summer internships). At the same time, this offers the possibility of a year-long summer, so it’s not all bad.
With beautiful zen-like architecture, some of the world’s most high-tech gadgets, and sushi, Japan offers students a wonderfully rich culture to explore. Take a twirl under the cherry blossom trees and learn the elegant draw of this little archipelago. Pros: Japan has the perfect intersection of modern conveniences (check out the shinkansen, Japan’s crazy-fast train) and historical surroundings (nearly every city has an ancient Buddhist temple), so whether you’re a modern manga fan or an ancient samurai warrior, there’s something just for you.Cons: Japan can be pretty expensive, even if you’re not pigging out on fancy sushi every night. Draft up a budget plan and learn at least some of the basics of the Japanese language before crossing the pond. Particularly Awesome Study Abroad Programs:
- Centre for Study Abroad (CSA)
- KCP International Japanese Language School
- Temple University International Programs
Students flock to study in cities like Beijing, Shanghai, and Hong Kong to resumes a competitive advantage. There are weekend mass migrations to famous sites like the Great Wall or Terracotta Warriors outside of the classroom.
Pros: Being the largest emerging economy globally, language ability in Mandarin or Cantonese gives students a competitive edge in the job market. You’ll also be able to see first-hand how intricately China is involved in the global market (and to eat all of the tasty treats).Cons: Some students can experience some culture shock due to dramatically different language and cultural perspectives. Which, looking back, can also be the highlight of the experiences, so let yourself dive in deep. Don’t forget to carry around a spare face mask if you’re living in a bigger city.
Argentina is an amazing experience from end to end; learning the tango in metropolitan Buenos Aires, exploring the wine country of Mendoza, hiking Patagonia, and viewing one of the most expansive waterfalls in the world, Iguazu Falls.
Pros: If you like dining on fine steak and sipping bold wine every night, you will not be disappointed. If you get jittery in the classroom, throw on a pair of hiking boots and point your finger at the next geographic wonder you’d like to tackle. Cons: The expansive landscape can be a challenge for anyone wanting to see each part of this beautiful country; focus on specific areas (or stay longer!). With strong Italian influences, expect some variety from that high school Spanish you’re bringing with you.
Costa Rica’s balance of rugged outdoor adventure and cultural urban flair is the perfect destination for a truly unique study abroad experience.
