How to apply to a foreign university?
1. Check out different UNIVERSITIES and STUDY PROGRAMMES at www.dreamfoundation.eu
Find a programme that interests you. You can use the programme search to check all the different opportunities you have. Next to the programmes you will find additional information about them and also button to start the application.
NB! If you are not sure which university or programme to choose, try taking a career test for inspiration http://dreamfoundation.eu/career-test/ and then agree a time for a consultation.
2. Contact your local Dream Foundation office for a FREE CONSULTATION
Most of the people in our team have a foreign experience themselves and are real fans of studies abroad. Contact us for a consultation and we are happy to help you in choosing a suitable study programme and university according to your interest, academic results and level of English.
3. TAKE the English language TEST
Depending from the university you can prove your level of English with:
- English state exam results
- CAE, TOELF, IELTS exam
- TESA test
- No of English hours in high school
It is strongly advised that you already have your English test results when submitting the application. For more information check out the language test section on our homepage or contact us.
4. COMPLETE the online application FORM
In the online application form you have to submit personal information, academic results and a reference(s) from your teacher(s). We advise to submit the application at the first possibility so that there would be enough time to look everything through and make corrections if needed.
- If you have graduated from high school, you will generally need to submit a copy of the high school diploma, final grades and your exam results. If you are in the final year of your secondary school you will have to attach your diploma to the online application form as soon as you have received it. You need to use the Dream Foundation grade transcript templates, available from here:
- An academic reference (recommendation letter) in English from your teacher is normally required. If you are not a student anymore, you can ask the letter of recommendation from a former teacher. You will be able to request the references using the online application form.
- A scanned copy of a passport (preferably at least two years to expiry date) also needs to be provided. Most institutions nowadays accept ID cards, but we recommend adding a copy of the passport.
Some courses may require additional documents to be attached to the application - specific instructions are given in the course description.
5. WAIT for OFFERS from the universities
After the successful completion of the previous stages, you will receive an official letter of acceptance from the university you applied to. The letter of acceptance can be conditional or unconditional. *
Conditional Letter of Acceptance. In case you have received a conditional letter of acceptance please look for the conditions in the letter that you have to fulfil to be fully accepted. Typically, the conditions are just formalities and easy to meet.
Unconditional Letter of Acceptance or just Letter of Acceptance says that you have been accepted.
When you have received the letter of acceptance and there are no conditions that you are not able to fulfil, we recommend you to start preparing for your life abroad straight away.
… and finally GO STUDY ABROAD!
Tips for applying
- We advise you to contact your local Dream Foundation office for a consultation to find the most suitable study programme and university.
- Take the language test at the first opportunity. Different universities require different tests but in many cases you can do Dream Foundation’s TESA English test.
- Add no more than 3-4 study programmes from up to 2 countries to your application.
- Submit your application as early as possible so there will be enough time to make corrections if necessary.
- You can submit the application while still studying in the final year of secondary school – just add your final diploma when you get it.
- Don’t choose a university or programme based on a name that sounds good but do your homework! Criminology is not what you see from CSI and “London” in the university name doesn’t always mean high quality.
Privacy. Your privacy is very important to us and you can be assured that the information inserted on your application will be kept strictly secure and transferred only to the universities that you have chosen on your application.
Mistakes. If it occurs that there are mistakes on your application and the application cannot be accepted, we’ll send you further instructions how to correct everything.
NB! We are currently NOT ACCEPTING applications from NON-EU countries, except Georgia and Serbia.
