Selecting universities to apply to for undergraduate or graduate courses is a daunting task. Simply going by the rank of the universities given by the US NEWS, Times Higher Education, World Report or any other agency is not the right approach.

If foreign education is on your mind, then the best time to start planning is as soon as the child begins her/his high school. Even if you are not sure but have a slight inclination towards it, it’s advisable to start early so that you have all the options open.
