  • Language proficiency tests: You can submit either the TOEFL or IELTS
  • Curriculum Vitae: This may include aspects of your career or life that would normally not be included in a CV for a job interview, like personal interests or future plans.
  • Recommendation letters: Make sure the people that recommend you know you very well, can speak to your strengths with specific details and have the time to write a comprehensive letter. The number of letters may vary, but normally you will need three.
  • Essay or Personal Statement: Be thorough and review your text several times. Be sure you have the time to write a sincere and honest essay that will help the admissions departments get to know you even better.
  • Please consider different schools and programs may have additional or different requirements. Be sure to read the admissions page carefully.
  • We highly recommend you follow and read the school’s Admission Blogs as they do offer admission advice and tips on the process.
  • There are different admission consultants that can help you with the application process, as well as help prepare for the standardized tests.
