Sort the Spring Vs Fall intake dilemma

You have your eyes all glued to the top glohal admit , but as you rummage through  the information overlaod over the internet , you pause to think which is the best intake , what's the timeline, what tests , ah , questions , questions and more questions

Lets take this  one step at a time ,most  countries like USA, Europe , Canada, AUS etc  will have two intakes in a year for admission 

The academic calendar in all these countries commences in Aug /Sep each year call as Fall or Winter , since this is the first  semester most funding for projects and research comes in during this semester 

Secondly , its concurrent with our  graduation months in June when most Indian Universities grant the degrees , thus you can take up the higher education degree immediately after your degree completion without a gap  

Hence fall/winter is  the most preferred intake 

Now lets look at the  other side , since summer/spring /Jan intake is the second intake in the academic calendar ,most funding is exhausted by then , also not many international universities accept international students in this intake .

Most importantly , some universities do not allow students to do internships when they join in Spring intake

Hence , all in all , you need to weigh the pros and cons well before deciding what the best way for you 
unless there is a dire reason we would not recommend that you opt for Spring intake, though  a lot of CS, ECE and Mech universities ( mainstream courses) are open to spring intake these days.
