This is the first stage of your application process. At this stage, you can write to the selected 25-30 universities. You can directly request application materials from the universities. You may visit their websites and email to send the application material or some time downloads directly the required material. So there are two ways to get application forms:

  • Requesting Application Forms via email:  You can request application forms from the universities website. Most universities have a form on their website which can be completed online to request application material.

  • Downloading from the university website: Many universities have a downloadable and ready to print versions of their application forms on the net. These can be used for applying just as regular forms.

Self Evaluation

The first step is identifying your goals and needs which can be done by self evaluation.
 A - Identify your reasons for pursuing higher education abroad

  • Are you motivated by career goals, job prospects, academic interest, and personal satisfaction?
  • What particular specialization are you interested in?

It is important to match your objectives with what the universities offer. If your aim is research in some particular field, you should apply to universities with specialized departments in that field. If you are interested in practical experience, you should apply to universities located close to the commercial centers and important cities.

B - Realistically assess your academic and professional background

  • Are you a competitive student?
  • Are you dedicated and hardworking?
  • How good is your academic record?
  • Do you have any work experience or research work related to your field of study?
  • Do you have any credentials in extracurricular activities?

Only if you have a good academic background, you should apply to highly ranked universities. If you feel you are moderately placed, you should apply to mid ranked universities.

C - Get an academic focus

  • Do you have a relatively clear idea of your field of study?
  • Have you spoken to your professors, read journals to know more about your field and other new fields?

Education abroad is very different from education in India. Most universities abroad have a very flexible system where you can select your courses and focus more on your field of interest. There are also many specialized courses which may suit your needs.

D - Realistically assess your financial abilities

  • Will you get a financial assistance from the university?
  • Can you or your family finance your education and stay?
  • Do you have an overseas sponsor?
  • Are you eligible for funds from educational trusts?

The application process itself costs about Rs. 25,000 - Rs. 30,000/- towards examination fees, postage, university application fees etc. Tuition and living expenses are also high and depend on the country you wish to study in. For a visa, you must be able to demonstrate your ability to fund your education and stay abroad.
