02. What kind of Documents Must I Prepare in Order to Apply to a Program?

Each university and program have their own unique entry requirements. Our platform will request from you (depending on the chosen program) what kind of documents are required from you to submit. Depending on the destination there might be additional migration documentation or questionnaires to be filled in. In this instance, our platform will also notify you.

03. Ok, I Have Submitted my Documents, What’s Next, & How Long it’s Going to Take for you to Process my Application?

If we need additional information or clarification, we will get in touch with you via our platform. Then, you must pay your application fee, as per university’s policy (if any). When everything is ready, then we will forward your application to the university. Usually, we strive to submit your application between 1 to 5 working days (depending on the university’s application deadline, the time you submitted your documents, and similar).

Applying To Study Overseas

Every University has different entry and eligibility criteria. These criteria also differ when it comes to program selection.

It depends on the university and country that you are applying to.

However, having acquired the prerequisite English language Test (as per the entry requirements) will help you get accepted by the university.

03. What is an Acceptance Letter and why do I need one?

Universities have specific entry requirements per program. During your application, you need to prove that you have all these requirements. If you demonstrate at the university that you have achieved their entry requirements, then they will provide you with a Letter of Acceptance, and as a result you have given a position to study with them.
