2) Personal Statement / Essay
Also known as a Statement of Purpose, many universities use them to gauge your analytical abilities, interests, critical thinking skills, and aspirations. You should include your education and career goals, along with your purpose of choosing the particular program and university.
But don’t worry, we gotchu covered. Here’s a guide to help you write a personal statement that actually works!
3) Reference Letter / Letter of Recommendation (LOR)
This letter is written by someone else, usually your teacher or employer, to assess your qualities and capabilities. The university may call them to confirm certain facts, so make sure to include their contact details!
4) CV / Resume (if applicable)
5) Work Experience Documents (if applicable)
6) Visa Application Documents
The visa requirements and details vary for each country. We’ve also prepared a step-by-step guide to apply for Student Visas for these countries:
7) Documents needed on arrival
Once you get your Student Visa sorted, you’re pretty much set for an overseas education! Just remember to bring these when you travel to your study abroad destination.
