thanks all of you specially study link.i wish to study abroad,in any of these countries.

I studied both sites of the atlantic. Choosing which country is depending on what your needs are. In UK, you hardly get to see your personal tutor or your professor who is busy for his/her books to get published(the system required them to do this otherwise, they will get kicked out sooner or later). You do not get any support from your university, plus networking after graduation does not exist, but now Brit Unis are following the footstepts of US alumni style of networking. In US, Library service: inculding interlibrary loan are the best for free of charge, you can print out 4000 pages for free. Scholarships: you name it; summer scholarship, stipend for internship, research...etc. You alwyas get support from your professors and departmental staff who are always there to help you. Activities on campus are so wonderful that you do not want to graduate and leave the uni. So once you get your foot at the door of US university, things will fall in place as long as you are prepared to work hard for your studies. If you want to go for PhD, almost all the Unis provide scholarship for PhD students.

I have never been in UK or USA but the reason for going to U.K is i want to meet the people of all the world and the level of study in UK is attractive.
