by Seek Academy Training Institute

If you are planning to study abroad, you should start applying to overseas universities as soon as possible because of the process of completing the paperwork can get pretty complicated. You have to take interviews, compile visa documents, arrange for foreign exchange, complete medical examinations, prepare a statement of purpose and so on and so forth.

Those who have just started nurturing the idea of studying abroad have questions in mind, such as when they can start applying, when the last date to submit an application is, and what documents are needed to complete the application process. This article answers all these questions and more so continue reading and you will also find answers you are looking for. If any question remains unanswered, you can consult Seek Consultants for Student Visa Consultants.

1.    WHEN TO START APPLYING TO OVERSEAS COLLEGES: The deadline to apply in a foreign university depends on two factors; the country in which the college is established and early or regular decision. The early decision means that the student has started searching and applying to colleges for a long time before they are done with what they are doing currently which may be studies or job. The regular decision means that the student starts applying to colleges after they have completed a level of study or job.

2.    UK APPLICATION DEADLINES: Usually, universities in the UK close the admission process somewhere in January. However, students must contact the specific university to check deadlines and what tests do they need to take for admission. Whatever the last date for application may be in UK universities, it is recommended that students start the application process at least 2 months before the close of the admission.

3.    AUSTRALIA APPLICATION DEADLINES: Australian universities have three intakes; July, November, and February. All international students are advised to complete the documentation by May, September, and October respectively. Documents for application include a resume, school certificates, birth certificate, IELTS score, statement of purpose, letters of reference and medical examination results. Different universities have a different process of screening applications but it usually takes around 4 – 6 weeks. Students aiming for an Australian university need to start applying as early as 5 months before the deadline.


Students should start the process as soon as possible irrespective of the last date for submission. The benefit here is that they can get ample time to plan their travel after they get the offer letter from the university. To complete the application process successfully without missing any deadlines, note down the important dates in the calendar or set a reminder.

Different universities set different deadlines. Generally, if the course starts in September or October, the admissions will commence from January or February and continue till July or August. You can visit Seek Consultants if you are still confused.
