Abstract

In todays era we see a lot of students pursuing their education away from their home countries. The main country targeted by these international students is The United States of America. Majority of the international students in the United States of America are from India and China. In the past decade the number of Indian students pursuing post graduate education from the USA has rapidly increased. With the increase in the number of international students studying in the USA, each applicant has to face a tough competition to get admission in their dream university. Generally as the students dont have much idea about the procedures, requirements and details of the universities in the USA they seek help from the education consultancy firms to help them successfully secure admission in the universities which are best suitable for their profile, for this they have to invest huge amount of money as consultancy fees. Apart from these the education consultancy firms there are few websites and blogs that guide the students on the admission procedures. The drawback of the currently available resources is that they are very limited and also they are not truly dependable taking into consideration of their accuracy and reliability. The aim of this research is to develop a system using machine learning algorithms, we will name it as Student Admission Predictor (SAP). It will help the students to identify the chances of their application to an university being accepted. Also it will help them in identifying the universities which are best suitable for their profile and also provide them with the details of those universities. A simple user interface will be developed for the users to access the SAP system.
