International students can receive a top-notch education in Canada and the United Kingdom. As a result, these two nations make excellent possibilities for those looking to further their studies. But there are many things that students need to think about before deciding to enrol in their preferred overseas University.
 
UK: Some of its top universities for international students include King's College London, ranked 33rd; University College London, ranked 8th globally; and the University of Edinburgh, ranked 20th. The University of Manchester ranked 27th, and the University of Warwick ranked 62nd.
 
Canada: There are many beautiful and top-notch universities in Canada. The University of Toronto is 29th, followed by McGill University in third place, the University of British Columbia in fifth place, the University of Montreal in sixth place, and McMaster University in seventh place.
 
Costs for undergraduate courses in UK and Canada, respectively: 

Tuition fees
    BTech: Rs 18.66 Lakhs per year
    BTech: Rs 22.39 Lakhs per year
 
Living expenses
    Rs 5.86 Lakhs per year
    Rs 6.31 Lakhs per year
 
Duration of course

    Four years

    Rs 17.83 Lakhs per year
 
 Work While sSudying
 
UK: It comes as standard for international students with Tier 4 Student Visas to be able to work up to 20 hours per week and full-time during the holidays. Work on the university campus or for an employer with a connection to the University is permissible, such as teaching or research assistantships.
 
Canada: Your Canadian student visa must include a clause allowing you to work on-campus, that is, in one of the buildings or for a company affiliated with the University. You may only work while you are enrolled in classes, not before or after, and only if you meet specific requirements.
 
Post-study Work Opportunities
 
UK: International students who wanted to stay in the UK to look for work were subject to tight limitations beginning in 2012, including a cap on the number of visas granted and a limited period (four months).
 
Canada: On the other side, Canada has traditionally provided graduates with a stay-back option. Graduates of institutions and programmes that qualify may apply for the Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP), which enables foreign nationals to continue working in the country after graduation.
 
So, choose wisely.
