When to apply...                                                   

deadlines and submission

Generally, the deadline for applying

For the Fall semester is end of August. 

For the Spring semester, end of November.

For the Summer semester is end of March.


It would be wise to start preparing your documents 1 month in advance; that is because the visa process takes a relatively long time to prepare, so you need to allow for a 1-month buffer. 


Non-EU students

For non-EU students, the process takes particularly longer; it basically depends on how fast government authorities can process applications.

Postage time needs to be taken into consideration as well.


Choosing a course checklist 


  1. The first thing is to decide what courses you would like to take
  2. Pick a “second best” alternative… just in case.
  3. Check which university or college is offering the courses you need
  4. Review and evaluate the program details
  5. Find out about the fees.
  6. Check deadlines and the fine print.
  7. If everything checks out, proceed with your application.


Applying to a university 

Choosing a subject

Step 1 is to decide what subject you would like to study. It could be business, engineering, architecture, medicine, etc.  However, you need to make sure if your existing degree is relevant and accepted for the subject matter you wish to study. You will find this information in the course description after you search for it here.

Choosing your course

Step 2 is to choose the courses you’d like to take. If let’s say you choose Business Administration, then you need to choose the courses offered as part of the core subject of Business Administration such as Management, Marketing, General business, etc.

Choosing the right university  for you

Step 3 is to find which university or college offers the programme you want. That is where the UAGC search engine comes in. click here.
