The international study application process is a straightforward, yet rigorous one to navigate. With the bulk of relevant resources currently available on the internet, you would simply need a stable internet connection, basic research skills, and enough time at your disposal to successfully navigate this process or at least, a major part of it on your own.
However, in some cases, the need for expert assistance is indispensable. Identifying and admitting such scenarios, asking for assistance, and implementing the directives gotten would largely increase your chances of getting admitted into your dream school.
Some indications that you need help with your study application include
Previous unsuccessful applications
Annually, countless study applications are turned down by international universities. Though all interested applicants can’t be possibly admitted, some individuals were admitted and you weren’t. And this is an indication that something needs to be done differently. If your application to study in your dream university or college has ever been rejected, don’t lower your standard; simply ask for help in the next application. At Gryn Index Initiative, we pride ourselves in offering this help to African students.
Owing to the rigorous application process of some universities, every foreign applicant is mandated to seek the help of an agent. This practice is most prevalent in Australian schools, however, it is also practiced by some European and American institutions. You may have an easier application process to your chosen school in the UK, and Canada because you carried out your application process with the assistance of a certified partner agency of the institution.
In such situations, you need to seek help, and it is non-debatable. Most students admit that they wouldn’t have been able to sail through if not for the assistance.
High application rate
The high-ranking status of some universities and colleges keeps attracting interested applicants in hundreds of thousands, yearly. During the 2021 fall application season, the University of California Berkeley received almost 250,000 applications from aspiring students. This is also the case in most other high-ranking institutions around the world.
If you are going to stand a chance of getting admitted, your application must stand out. If the school you wish to study in has a high application rate, the acceptance rate would be low. To be amongst the fortunate few, you will need the help of an expert.
Slow application progress
Sometimes, even after reading and applying the information from relevant online resources, you may still find it difficult to swiftly navigate the application process. If you are finding it difficult to wrap up the application process, even after extensive research and efforts, you should ask for help from an expert. An early application significantly contributes to successful admission.
Lack of financial proof
No international study application process is complete till the student’s visa has been approved. Most students who wish to study abroad lose out on the opportunity because the proof of funds didn’t meet the visa requirements.
In addition to the immigration office, your school may also request financial proofs to ensure that you are financially capable of meeting all your academic and physical needs. While this is essential and varies from one school/country to another, the proof required might not be available, though the funds and liquid assets are there.
If you are ‘financial proof’ away from completing your admission or visa process, you can ask for help from proof of funds agencies. They would easily offer it on ascertaining that you have the liquid assets/funds.
Why should you ask for assistance in your study application?
While applying for admission into a foreign institution, you can choose to do it all on your own or ask for help. Asking for help, though perceived by some as a weak gesture is a brave thing to do, especially in situations when it’s glaring that you can’t do it alone. You can get help from an informed friend, a student who has already been admitted into the university you are applying to, or an international education agency. Some benefits of asking for help include
It facilitates the admission process
Irrespective of the volume of available online resources for a successful application, being guided by an expert that navigates this process daily is a swift way of completing the application process. When you ask for help, the application process is sublime, fast, and less stressful.
It increases the chances of getting admitted
Getting appropriate help with your study application improves your chances of getting admitted. It facilitates the progress of the process and significantly spurs enthusiasm. It also contributes to interpersonal skills development.
