One thing I'd like to add is that other than having good records in your field of interest, you have to pass an English proficiency test. The test may vary from country to country but the most common tests that are accepted by most universities are TOEFL, IELTS and GRE. Check with the university, which test score they ask for and along with your academics, do prepare for this test as well. Most of the study material is available online.

An informative article on study in foreign countries by Indian students. In this connection, I would like to state that in some countries like England or America, the aspiring students have to clear various tests like TOEFL,IELTS. GMAT, GRE, SAT, etc. for taking admission in various courses. On the other hand, there are many other countries which give admission to Indian students based on their X+II results or Graduation performance. In case of such countries, the Indian students must check whether the degrees conferred by the universities are accepted by India, or not.
The aspiring students must also check the medium of instruction in foreign universities, course fees and scholarships available before taking a decision on study in foreign universities.
