I know it may look a bit overwhelming to understand the application process and figure out the right time to start the process. Don't worry. I have created a step by step guide on what are the things that you need to do along with the timeline.

 

1 year before applying:

 

* Plan virtual tour of the universities you're applying to

 

* Start researching where you might like to study one year before you start applying to universities. Check out each school’s acceptance rates, location, tuition, campus activities, etc.

 

* Make a list of target, reach, and safety schools. Pick schools in all the categories, so you will have more options when acceptance letters come out.

 

 

9 months before applying

* Take the GMAT or GRE for the first time. This is a good time to assess your level and

identify areas of improvement for your next try.

 

* Take an English language exam (if required). Choose between the TOEFL and IELTS if you're applying from a non native English speaking country.

 

6 months before applying

- Start approaching teachers for LOR

- Begin writing your Common Application Essay

- Start Approaching consultants if you need help

 

5 months before applying

Work on any supplemental essays required for the

colleges you are applying to

 

4 months before applying 

- Take GMAT or GRE for the second time

- Start researching financial aid and scholarship options

 

1 month before applying 

Finalize all application requirements and prepare to submit!

To start your Master's degree admission process, it is recommended to begin researching universities and programs at least six months before the course begins. Many universities accept applications throughout the year, but some courses may have specific deadlines, often between June and July for courses starting in September.


To ensure a smooth application process, it is essential to check the specific requirements and deadlines for each university and program you are interested in. Give referees plenty of time to prepare references, and ensure they send their recommendations directly to the university, signed, dated, and sealed, or from an official email address.

If you are applying to multiple universities, limit applications to two or three courses to maintain the quality of each application. Some universities recommend applying as soon as possible, especially for competitive courses or if your program requires additional components like a portfolio, essay, or interview.


In summary, start the Master's degree admission process early by researching universities and programs, preparing application materials, and reaching out to referees well in advance of the application deadlines. By adhering to specific deadlines and submitting high-quality applications, you can increase your chances of a successful admission to your desired Master's program.
