We all aim to study abroad. The procedure sometimes seems very easy, sometimes missing of a small
piece of document may result into a year loss. This is simple check list that may help you to track
whether all your documents are ready in your file or not, if you want to study abroad. These are general
set of documents that one will need during the application process.
1. The application form
Fill in the application form carefully and properly; use a computer if you need to type in the information.
This makes it so much easier for the admissions officer to read.
If you’ve just completed your high school, you will need your senior secondary certificates (SSC) and
higher secondary certificates (HSC) and their mark sheets.
If you have already finished your bachelors’ degree or postgraduate degree, you will have to produce
your degree certificate and the mark sheets.
3. Competitive exam scores
This is one important document if English is not your first language. Usually for arts courses you will
require either TOEFL or IELTS scores for your admission. Many universities require GMAT, GRE, and
ELSAT and so on for other courses. This test certificate is extremely important and has a validity date. So
make sure the certificate is valid while submitting it to the university.
4. Statement of purpose
This written document will signify who you are, what made you choose your career path, why you
opted for that particular university, what are you planning to do after the course, interests and other
personal details. A well- written, well-shaped SOP will be the key to your way into the university. So take
a good amount of time before you submit the SOP.
Right after you finish your high school, it is a good idea to prepare a powerful resume. I know it’s slightly
unrealistic to have a powerful resume just after high school, but give it a try! It is wise to get help while
preparing your resume; stick to two pages at the most, if possible.
6. Letters of recommendation
People always want to know what others think of you. Find the right opportunity to ask for a
recommendation letter from someone who you know for sure will nail it for you. A sad recommendation
letter will push you down the ladder.
7. Passport size photographs
Always double check the dimensions of the passport size photo, be it admissions or visas.
8. Experience Documents
If you are applying for grad school, make sure you have relevant experience documents. You might not
have experience certificates if you’ve just finished high school.
9. Additional documents
Many a times the smallest award that you have received will push your application a little harder.
Produce proof of achievements and other certificates that will explain your talents and extracurricular
activities you’ve undertaken. If you’ve always been a book worm, never mind!
10. Solvency Documents
All bank statement, property papers, employment business papers, solvency certificate, TAX certificates
are required in some case if the candidates is sponsored by parents or by any relatives for foreign study.
Therefore all these documents needs to be ready in English.
