Q 1  How to choose a country for education?
Answer : The choice of country depends on the budget as well as personal interest of the student. Mostly all countries now are offering a very wide range of courses. A student must first of all choose which country offers him the best choice of course as well as provides him/her employment opportunities.
Example : Taking the financial aspect into consideration the courses in UK are only for 1 year and that cuts down the cost of studies substantially when compared to USA / Australia. Dolphin Foreign Education and Immigration helps you make this analysis and then zero-in on a country that suits you best.

Q 2  How do I know which university is the best for me?
Answer : All the countries have university rankings; but this may not be the only distinguishing feature for a university. A university that suits the student best would be the one that:
  1. Is accredited by the local Accreditation Council.
  2. Offers the course that a student is looking for.
  3. Accepts students qualifications for the interested course.
  4. Is situated in a location that student is interested in.
Once these 4 points are checked with, the student can then look into the financial part.
