#2. The United Kingdom (UK)

Personally I like UK for pursuing a Master Degree program as it takes only a year to complete while in India one have to spend minimum 2 years. Though there might be exceptions. But who don't like to see Buckingham's Palace? Ties between India and Great Britain are friendly so migration is not very tough for qualified candidates. For Indian students, UK is like a home away from home. Indian students are enrolled in plenty in UK's institutions, they proves helpful to newcomers. You get to know the campus, culture and city better through fellow Indians. Be wise in selecting your destination. A course in a London based institution may cost you twice than a same course in an institution based in Sheffield or Cardiff.

All sorts of courses are offered; you can choose to complete course work in English. Do you know??? French is called the Language of Love.
