Dear Sri Sreehari,
Thanks for your post.
"Foreign Universities" as you can understand and it encompass the entire globe.
If, for instance, you want to do Ph.D from U.S. Universities Simmons College Boston is the one where many Indian students underwent (short term) courses under Prof. Chen. For Ph.D, However, it is mandatory to get ALA Accreditation of your University Degree as the very first step of being eligible to apply. They have quite stiff rules and as far as I know it is difficult to fit into their format unless you have an outstanding topic with high theoretical value and great practical impact. I am telling this from my personal experience but that was more than 3 decades ago!! So you can certainly check with local USIS Library or Americal Consulate or from the University websites
Bangladesh and Sri Lanka are two neighboring FOREIGN Countries. You can contact Universities in both the Countries to know their requirements and beforehand you must be aware of UGC's recognition of those Doctoral Qualification in our country.
By the way, you can try for Commonwealth Fellowship to do Ph.D from U.K. Universities
With best wishes to your research endeavour.
