Frequently asked questions
Many students ask us: “Do I need to finish my current studies to be eligible to apply?”. The answer is no.
For example: If you are applying for a bachelor program, you do not need to complete your high school education before applying. Being in your last year of high school (i.e. grade 12 in most countries) is the minimum requirement to apply to a bachelor program.
The general rule is, as long as you can demonstrate that you are qualified to graduate from your current educational program before starting your studies in Europe, you are eligible to apply today. You don’t need a certificate of graduation unless you have finished your current education.
Required documents when applying to an undergraduate program:
If you are applying for an undergraduate program (i.e. a program that only requires a high-school level of education), you will need your high school transcript and it must show all of your grades obtained from all years of high-school (usually grade 9 – 12).
If you have finished high school, your high school graduation diploma/certificate is also required.
You will also need a copy of your passport (if you have one).
Required documents when applying to a post-graduate program:
Post-graduate programs require a higher education degree or diploma. For example, most master’s programs require a four-year bachelor’s degree and most post-graduate certificate programs need at least a three-year bachelor’s degree or an undergraduate diploma.
If you are currently still a post-secondary student, you will need to provide your latest transcript that displays grades since the beginning of your post-secondary program.
If you have finished your bachelor’s degree or diploma, you need to provide your graduation certificate/diploma as well.
You will also need a copy of your passport if you have one.
Some master’s programs require recommendation letters, résumés, essays and/or a statement of purpose.
You can find the specific requirements for high school, bachelor and master programs on each program page of our website. Simply search for your desired programs, determine the ones that you can be accepted to by answering our eligibility questions, and see the specific requirements for each program.

Tuition Fee: You have to pay the tuition fee for each semester at the beginning of the school’s semester.
Some schools require that you pay a deposit amount after obtaining your acceptance letter in order to secure your position in the school. The deposit amount is a portion of the first year’s tuition fee and is usually at 30%.
If you do not get your visa, the school will fully refund your deposit back to you.
Note: You do not have to pay any tuition before getting your acceptance.
Note: The application processing fee will not be refunded if your visa application is refused.
Note: We have calculated the total annual tuition fees for each school for your convenience but this does NOT mean you have to pay the listed annual tuition at the beginning of the school year.
The application fee is usually between €90 to €300 for each program. You can find the exact application fee for each program on the associated program’s page on our website.
Universities and colleges in Europe charge an application fee to process your application and to issue your acceptance letter if you are deemed eligible.

These amounts go directly toward the institution’s application fee.

In most cases, no.
