In many cases you will have to prove your ability to finance all of your studies when applying for a visa, so you’ll have to look within your budget. We know that international education can be expensive, and thus many institutions are providing financial aids to help international students mitigate the costs of their studies. There are even accommodation scholarships available in some universities too. Next, work on the budget you can afford to spend on tuition and living expenses for this will help determine a country or city to study in.
