Applying to university varies from country to country. A good place to start is www.topuniversities.com; this website has information on universities worldwide. Please see below some useful information about how to apply in different countries.
As a prerequisite, the majority of application processes require:
- Clarification of the level of English (C+ as IGCSE English First Language) is usually the minimum requirement for entry, or check for IELTS/TOEFL requirements.
- Predicted gradesto ensure the correct academic level.
- A personal statement outlining why the student is applying to the particular course; experiences gained from Extracurricular Activities are important to draw upon.
University applications will always need at least one teacher reference. Students must ensure they give chosen teachers a minimum of one month’s notice to complete a reference.

Visiting a university campus is very important: it is a way to verify your assumptions about that school, city, region, or country; to ask important questions; to let the school know of your interest to attend there; and to try to get a sense of your comfort level there.
So we all know that the way we think is vital to our success in life. But what mindsets are the most helpful?
