Every program will have entry requirements to check your eligibility. They could be academic grades, language proficiency, performance in assessment tests or interviews, portfolios, work experience and expression of genuine intent for study. If you choose the program carefully and fulfil the requirements you can study in any place of your choice. There are also options like foundation programs, University transfer programs and Premasters programs if you are not eligible for a particular level of study.
We recommend you to start as early as possible. This will give you enough time to research according to your personal aspirations and academic goals. Start planning at least one year in advance. It does take preparation and time to arrive at the right institution in the preferred country for the suitable qualification. You have to meet the entry criteria for the program that you want to study and also prepare your finances.

Certificates, Diplomas at undergraduate and postgraduate levels, Bachelors, Masters (by course work and thesis) and Doctorates are open for admission. The duration varies according to the level of the program.
