Preparation for Your Higher Study

Preparation for Your Higher Study

As you have taken the decision of stepping ahead for your higher study, several questions can come into your mind. It is probable that you are thinking about - how to start, the prerequisite of your higher study, standardized tests you need to take, application period etc. Well, here we are for you, your questions will be answered systematically.

First off, the prerequisite of higher study - you need to have an undergraduate degree by the time of the application deadline of your intended university (In some cases that can vary based on university's rules & regulation). In case you want to study the Doctorate program, not all universities will ask you for a Master degree, especially in the USA, for most of the Ph.D. program, a Master degree is not mandatory.

The second thing you have to have is your standardized test scores. So, you have to take those tests. Depending on the country that you are about to apply, the required tests varies. In general, if you are seeking an admission in the USA, you have to take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) and if you are a non-native English speaker, a language test - either Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or, International English Language Testing System (IELTS). In case you are from the business background, you might have to take Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) instead of GRE. If you are intended to apply outside the USA, you might not need to take the GRE, though it can add more strength in your application.

At this point, you might be thinking about - when should I start my preparation? The answer to your question is, it should depend on your intended country, more specifically, your intended university's application period. In the USA, in general, there are two semesters in which vast numbers of students apply - the fall session and the spring session and in most of the cases, the intake in fall session is the largest, though. Some universities offer a summer session, but, fall and spring sessions have the large intake. Although the application deadlines vary based on universities, you can have a look at here - Application Deadlines for US Universities. So back to the answer to your question, you should check your intended program's deadline and prepare yourself for the tests, take the tests and complete your application prior to the deadline. Here is a very informative video - how to apply to graduate school, from the graduate division diversity program director: Carla Trujillo of the University of California, Berkeley that you may look at.
