It’s very easy to apply for an opportunity to study, work or volunteer abroad, just follow these steps:
- Select in the main menu type of opportunity you are looking for: for example, if you are looking for a scholarship first select “Scholarships & Grants” and then select the level of studies in which you are or want to be enrolled (Bachelor, Master or PhD).
- Check the characteristics of the opportunity, specifically if you meet the requirements: for example, each scholarship will have its main characteristics as brief description, requirements, application process, deadline, and link to the website of the institution that is offering it. Put special attention to the candidates’ requirements as citizenship, residency and experience and make sure you are qualified to participate.
- If you qualify for the opportunity go to its website: all the opportunities will have a link to the website of the institution that is offering them, so go to it and read a more detailed description of the application process.
- Make your application: get ready and start gathering all the documents and paperwork you need to apply.
- Tips for a successful application: Keep in mind that in the application process for almost all of these opportunities you’ll be asked to summit proof of a good level of English, your academic records, letters of recommendation and your CV.
- English level: the exams that are usually required are the TOEFL iBT or the IELTS. The exam results are valid for 2 years so try to do one of them as soon as possible to have this requirement ready.
- Academic records: if your academic records are not in English, usually you can ask your High School or University for a translation, but if they don’t offer this service google “sworn translator and your country” and search for a qualified translator.
- Letters of Recommendation: ask your professors/bosses to write you a recommendation letter with time, the majority of the time people are busy so it’s better to do everything in advance and secure a quality letter.
- CV: create a good CV highlighting the achievements that are related to the opportunity. You can find advice on writing a compelling CV in this post: How to create a professional CV that will get you the job
