The four countries of UK (England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales) are all top destinations for business, information technology and other courses. MBA in UK might be the top program offered as most of the students looking to study in UK choose this course.
The second best destination is Australia. Although the program quality and variations are almost the same in Australia and UK but the latter wins the race with the high number of foreign students. There are more than 50 universities in the country and a large number of them rank in the top 50 universities of the world. The spoken language is English in Australia which makes it quite easy for foreign students. MBA in Australia is the top program along with other courses like medicine, engineering, environmental sciences and others.

Apart from good universities, students can also find work in the country and many of the foreign students settle in the country. Although the tuition fee might seem a little high, but the quality of education and programs will make up for it. If you don’t worry about how much your degree will cost you, then Canada is your destination.
Dutch universities have a very good reputation in the world. Medicine, IT, humanitarian sciences and other courses offered in Dutch universities are some of the best in the world. In 2013, twelve universities from Netherlands were ranked in the top 20 of the world. This is quite an impressive number considering that there are 30 or so universities in the country.
There are total eight universities in New Zealand. But all of them offer internationally recognized education in different sectors. In the recent few years, these universities have started to attract a large number of students from all over the world. The best thing is that the cost of studying abroad in New Zealand is quite reasonable considering other countries which makes it a favorable destinations for foreign students.

The cost of living in France may be higher than other European countries but you are getting high quality education. Paris was recently titled the best city for foreign students despite the high living cost. France and Italy both will not only satisfy your educational needs but you can taste some of the best food here as well.

If you are looking to study in different fields of technology, medicine, economics, banking, research etc. USA is probably the best destination.

These three countries offer a very good educational system. Japan and Singapore are known for their technology research and have a lot of good institutes. But Tokyo and Singapore may be a bit expensive to live in. Malaysia on the other hand has an affordable higher educational system compared to its neighboring countries.
