If you are willing to go abroad, you can prefer M.S. One has to appear for Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) and or Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or International English Language Testing System (IELTS) for doing M.S in foreign countries.
Going abroad for higher studies involves huge expenditure; hence, this decision must to be taken in consultation of family members and well wishers.
