Meet with your academic advisor about specific application for the program/university you intend to apply. (Often times, this can be an extensive application so it is important to begin this process early and submit the application well in advance.)
Keep in touch with your advisor throughout the process and have everything submitted at least three weeks prior to the program/university’s deadline so your advisor can review it and then, mail it to that university directly.
Once acceptance letter has been received, you should apply for student visa if required by the country where you will study. (Normally, you can only apply up to 3 months prior to your departure and it is best to apply at least 2 to 3 months before your scheduled departure if possible. Some visas can be issued in as little as one week and others can take a couple of months.)
In addition to applying for the visa, you will also need to purchase your airline ticket.
Review all materials received from your host university and complete any additional forms that they may require, such as applications for accommodations.
Follow Study Abroad Checklist for general instructions to prepare for your adventure abroad, which will be provided by your advisor.
