aim of promoting mutual understanding
among nations.
---Ability of the supervising agencies
abroad to arrange supervision.

countries. In many countries, only
advanced degree candidates may apply,
and in some countries, certain fields of
study are closed.
Factors Affecting Selection II

accomplished in a less competitive country, your
chances for success in the competition will be
enhanced by applying in the less stringent
country competition.

advice)
