What are the eligibility criteria or requirements to pursue your Masters or graduate study abroad?
The eligibility criteria or
pre-requisites to study abroad vary according to the country, university, and
program you are planning to apply to.
It is all the more important to get information about these
requirements well in advance as that will help you decide your intended intake
Following are the most important
eligibility criteria or pre requisites to be considered for your overseas
1) YEARS OF EDUCATION: For Masters Abroad most of the
universities require a candidate to have a Bachelor’s degree in order to get
admission into a Master’s program. Some universities may require 12+4 years of
education while some may accept 12+3 years of education.
2) ACADEMIC REQUISITES: A Bachelor or
undergraduate of Science may apply for a Graduate or Masters program in any
discipline but an undergraduate or Bachelor in Arts or Commerce may not be able
to apply to science or technology courses for graduate program. It is
imperative to check the course requirements to ensure that you are eligible to
apply for the program based on your previous qualifications.
3) TEST SCORES: Language Proficiency tests
are mostly mandatory. Students who are non-native English speakers applying to
graduate and undergraduate programs to natively English speaking countries have
to take English Proficiency test like TOEFL, IELTS or a PTE.
programs also require students to take a GRE or GMAT which are standardised tests
that enable the admission committee to assess the students reasoning and
analytical abilities which may be essential to study and contribute to the
graduate program you are applying to.
mandatory test’s scores also differ as per the eligibility requirement of every
university and program. A particular university may require a certain score for
the Master’s program in a specific discipline but will not make it mandatory
for a different discipline. We suggest, you to collect detailed information on
these elements before making applications to the universities.
4) BUDGET: Studying abroad can be quite an
expensive endeavour. Hence it’s advisable that every aspect especially the
finances are well planned for. Every student should check the tuition fees of
the course they are applying to in addition to the living expenses so that they
