While taking an opportunity of international studies program, there are few options you can have. The first is that there are some local universities that may have cooperation with international universities outside your country, you can take that chance to explore the cooperated universities and see if they suit your preference and if they have the program that you plan on getting into. Although, as far as it goes, local universities who have cooperation or collaboration with international universities usually have their own study program, usually they require you to study at said local university for half the terms of the major and then spend the rest at the international university.
There are also other programs that universities offer, such as double degree for certain majors. This international studies program requires you to study for a portion of half and half for your residence country and to the cooperated university and gain two degrees based on the countries the universities are located. The other option is to take a scholarship. Scholarships may differ and come in lot of variations, they may cover whole expenses for you, including flights and accommodation, or they may cover the tuition fees only. They usually also have rules for post-study, they usually require you to stay in the country you studied in to make contribution for at least a year. For a local scholarship issued by government, that they may require you to go back to your residence country for at least a year to make a scholar contribution
Whichever options you choose to take on the chance on international studies program, you should also consider if the country you’re about to choose fits your preference of living. And always make sure to plan your post-study way ahead before even starting one, because it may be a difficult choice later on. You should always check for resources to make sure that the university or institute that you’re planning to apply have good reputations and are well-known internationally.
