it even more complex and complicated for Universitys factor, as it becomes more competitive,
the factor itself becoming more demandable than ever before. Strategy for marketing and trying
to recruit/attracting more students into university also becoming more complex.It is conculded

be kept in mind when University are trying to create a bigger advantage in marketing.This
various variety and the accessibility joined with the beauty of the its own quality of education
has made it popular to potential students in worldwide. While the significant factor that affecting
students in choosing an institution for the graduate studies is the academic excellence and the
scholarship of the particular institution. Moreover, the quality of the particular institution
environment is considered as an important factor, so then the students can feel the pure essence
of the nature which made the candidates mind in one direction to secure the mood emotionally
and physically. Besides that, the cost of the particular program for the education also a main
major factor.Moreover, some students prefer school that are close to their hometown or place. It
is quite convenient and accessibility for them. Again, low cost is one of the factor that influence
students which college to choose for education. so, it seems that there is a significant
