For one, decide on which country you want to apply for. Because there will be certain stuff that changes due to that. But luckily, the general process of applying for a masters degree abroad is the same. Instead of a student in a country, you are seen as an international student. So all you need to do is fulfill the criteria for it.

But it does  ot give you slack to act all on your own. I mean, you may have to appear for a test and not its alternative so that you can have better chances. Once you decide on a country and a master program, start arranging your basic documents. These are generally, your undergraduate degree (which you can get later on as well), academic transcripts, photo ID, passport etc. Let me list down the absolute required things for you.


  • Undergraduate degree that should be equivalent to university’s requirement.
  • All academic transcripts
  • A CV/resume
  • Standard requirements; SOP, LORs and Essays
  • GRE/GMAT (depending on program)
  • English language test (IELTS/TOEFL/PTE)

Know that these are the utmost necessary items you need for submission of your application. After you manage to do it, you can submit your application on your selected masters program website page. GMAT is for business courses while GRE is more universal. And yes, look at what English test a country prefers before you attempt it. It can give you a little edge.

After all these steps, if you get selected you will be informed via email you have provided in your application. And then you can start your visa process. I would like to recommend applying to 3-4 different universities so that you have options. I hope I have briefed you enough, thanks.
