Firstly, base your search on academics
: Ultimately, the reason you are going abroad is to get a good education, so focus on what you will learn in the classroom. If you know what you want to study, make sure to visit that department’s web page and read about the courses offered and the professors who teach those classes.
Consider the social factors
Yes, you are going to school to learn but you also need a social experience. Look for schools that have socio-cultural activities, clubs, events, academic communities that you attend as well as join while you study.
Check the numbers, but don’t dwell on them
Tuition fees, Admission rates, diversity rate (that’s the number of other nationalities and cultures that are represented on campus), accommodation cost (on-campus and off-campus) are some of the major factors that should be considered.
