UK admission processes

  1. Select a course of your choice: The first thing to have in mind when planning to study abroad in the course of study. You have to choose the course to study to put in an application. If you don’t have any course in mind you have nothing to worry about because we can guide you through the process of course selection. 
  2. Pick a school you will like to study at: After selecting a course the next step will be to choose the school to study at. this choice of school will be guided by the country you want to study in, the course you selected in the previous step, your budget, and in some cases your results.
  3.  Read and understand their requirements and deadlines: This is very important because some schools close intake very early and you wouldn’t want to miss it. and coincidentally most of the highly ranked schools close their intake very early mostly 10 months before the beginning of the school semester, so you need to read and understand the requirements.  
  4. Prepare for the English proficiency test: As I stated earlier when you are traveling to an English-speaking country from Nigeria you need to write an English proficiency test. 
  5. Prepare the required document:  Put together the documents that are required for you to present. find the list as stated above.
  6. Register for any required exams: Some schools require you to write certain exams. For example SAT, some schools require you seat for SAT as a condition for getting admission. 
  7. Put in the application: Let me not be at risk of stating the obvious but after the previous step it’s now time to submit your application. and if you are sure that you follow the previous step correctly then you should expect to get an admission. 
  8. Schedule a Visa appointment: for you to obtain a visa into Canada and the US you need to go through an interview in the embassy. The outcome of the interview will put the final nail in the coffin, it will determine whether you will get the visa or not.
