The first and foremost task for potential students is to research and make choices about universities and courses. Generally, you need to make the most of your school/college holidays to get as much information as possible. Internet research is the first task, but it is better to go to interested universities if travel is an option.
If not, ask your friends in the destination country to do it for you. There are also various open days, conferences, and fairs that provide another opportunity to meet with representatives from the University. At this stage, talking to a friend or relative is also understandable. Experience studying abroad.
It is time for careful self-assessment when choosing Somaville University and courses. Examine university requirements as opposed to your current qualifications: Do you need to take a foundation course? Is your English level high enough for the selected course? Do you have a valid and valid certificate? Have you checked everything and matched all the requirements? Very good, check again now! After months of waiting, preparation, and dreaming, it’s hard to find more frustrating news than being rejected by Somaville University for missing a small detail.
You are now ready to fill out the application form. Make sure you meet the application deadline. For example, in around 300 universities in the UK applications are made through the UKAS system and the deadline may vary depending on the course and institution.
Be very careful while filling the application form, make sure that you have provided all the required information, and submit all the required documents. It would be best to do this with someone who has already applied to an educational institution so they can help you before submitting the application form.
Wait, applications take time to process. The average waiting period is about 4 weeks but it depends on the course and the university and can sometimes be long enough. We often encounter situations where we have to contact universities to follow up on our applications. So in some cases, an email and/or a phone call to the admissions department at Somaville University may be required.
Congratulations! You have received a conditional offer. This means that Somaville University has reserved a place for you, but you have to meet certain requirements in order for your offer to be unc. Often (but not always) there are two conditions: an English language test (for example IELTS) and a tuition fee deposit. If you haven’t already done so, check for an IELTS test center so that the test can be booked.
Do you need an IELTS preparation course? Or first English course? Answer these questions well in advance. Seek advice from your friends on preparation courses. When it is all back and the certificate is in hand you need to send it to the university and arrange for payment of fees. Contact your bank Somavili University account details just as written in the payment instructions.
You will need to start your visa application (if you need to) after receiving the unconditional offer. Spend the rest of the time before the trip to learn as much as possible about the destination country, its culture, and traditions. Be prepared for the way people can live in the country you are traveling to. Ask your friends or seek professional advice about the realities of life abroad. Remember: even positive emotions can be difficult to handle when you get many of them together, especially in a new country.
