As an international student, there are a number of things you should take into account before selecting your college. First of all, find out what the costs will be in terms of tuition fees, living expenses and any fees – there should be a page on each university website detailing this information for you – public universities will generally be more cost effective than private ones and some disciplines (humanities/arts degrees for instance) may be cheaper than engineering/medical degrees.
