Milestones to a successful application

Lay the foundations of a successful MBA or Master’s application. Take advantage of personalised advice in the early stages of your planning and preparation.

Learn how to position yourself in your application; how to prepare for admission tests such as TOEFL, IELTS, GMAT, GRE; how to identify the schools which are right for you. All this done well is half the battle for successful admission and scholarships.

A carefully crafted CV/resume is an important element of your initial communication with admissions directors. It can open doors early in the application process, as it is one of the first documents that admissions officers read. Take advantage of this chance to make a good first impression on the decision-makers.

And finally, prepare for the admissions interview – the last step of the application process when the stakes for admission and scholarships are really high – win or lose, gain admission or face rejection.
