Your Guide to Grad School Applications


When you’re an international student, applying to grad school abroad can be a little confusing and intimidating.

You will need to consider compatibility of your degree,  how you’ll finance grad school, and standardized entry level test(GMAT, GRE, TOEFL, IELTS, MCAT and LSAT) among others. With proper planning and understand the requirements we will help you jumpstart on your admissions process!


Getting a Ph.D is different in many parts of the world. Since European schools receive large part of their funding through government grants and subsidies, the Ph.D openings may be one or two throughout a year in universities. In U.S, university departments will have many openings for Ph.Ds every year. Even though Ph.D candidates are part of the university staff like in Europe, they are primarily students that enrolled for the doctoral degree. You can be an applicant during the school's admission timeline (Spring or Fall) and re-apply if you are not successful.

In U.S each university has its own portal, and requirements for application. But the common requirements will include the application, application essay, your academic records(transcripts), TOEFL or IELTS test results, GRE test results, resume/CV, letter of recommendations.
