I think this thead is going to help you: http://www.guidetojapanese.org/forum/viewtopic.php?pid=49799 Generally, Verb in Short Form + こと = the ''thing'' (noun) which derives from that verb In this case, ''こと'' is used to convert the verb (帰国する) into a noun, which can then been used in the expression noun+に決める.
