One More Very Important Tip!

The resources above will definitely help you with the application process, but don’t forget to check the websites of the programs you’re applying to as well. This is a very important step. Each university will list its own requirements, and some even walk you through the international admissions process step (for example, check out American University’s international admissions page).
