Applying to universities in Europe
There are a number of websites which will help with finding suitable universities, courses and entry requirements. Many of these also provide information about the education systems in each specific country allowing students to make informed choices about the course they might select and the location in which they would like to study. Once possible universities have been identified, students should go to the university's own website and check the available courses and entry. An application form should then be requested from the University's Admissions Office. Sometimes application forms are available online but usually students need to ask for one to be posted to their home address. There will be other documents which will need to be sent back to the university with the application form.
