1.    Breakdown Expenses
Different study programs cost differently. Contact a counselor to get the list of various study programs and to get the detailed information of each. If possible ask him to introduce a person who is pursuing the same degree in the same country of your interest for more guidelines. In this way you can estimate the daily and monthly costs of that program in that country. According to that you can start saving money by limiting your current expenses.

You do not have to submit more number of documents. With the help of an agreement you are given money you have to pay it back.
