Admission Process 

Most of the colleges consider the documents like Statement of Purpose (SoP), Letters of Recommendation (LoRs), entrance exams and/or entrance interviews. This process assesses the candidate’s interest and capability towards the course. 

  • A few colleges ask their applicants to submit financial records of the family along with the registrations so as to ensure that the family can pay the tuition fees and miscellaneous expenses over the course of the first year. If the university is offering a scholarship you’re eligible for, you can apply for it and show it as a financial support to the course taken.
  • In addition to this, many colleges permit their students to intern and do part-time jobs so as to be able to handle their expenses as in case of Canada. It is important to be noted that pursuing a Masters’ education in the USA would require 16 (12+4) years of education which often poses a problem for Indian students who’ve completed their bachelors in 3 years or so.
  • Foreign countries also require their international students to submit scores of tests like IELTS, GRE, TOEFL, GMAT, SATs, etc. in order to prove fluency in the English language.
  • The students need to have good work experience to show to the universities as it is a major part of your CV.
