We check the application documents for the learner and assist with the preparation of up to two university applications, correction of the letters of motivation/CV and communication with the universities. The processing time for the individual universities can take up to eight weeks and should be taken into account in the application process.

Admission requirement: Evidence of the higher education admission qualification in the learner’s home country.
