Postgraduate study abroad

How can I earn my master's degree from a foreign university?

Master's programs are advanced educational programs that students can complete after achieving their bachelor's degree. These programs allow students to dive deeper into a certain specialization or field of study.

During their master's program, students follow a specialized curriculum and complete high-level research that prepares them for a professional career in their chosen field.

A master's degree is a great way to expand your knowledge and increase your chances of finding meaningful work in any country around the world.

Finding a scholarship and selecting a university

Universities are eager to welcome foreign students into their master's programs in order to help strengthen international ties and promote cultural diversity on campus. A wide range of scholarship programs are available to international students, many of which are funded by universities, governments, or private foundations. These programs either fully or partially cover the cost of study, and some offer monthly stipends, accommodation, and much more.

Taking exams

To confirm academic readiness for study abroad programs, most universities require standardized test scores: SAT, ACT, GRE, GMAT, or IELTS/TOEFL (to test English language proficiency).

The list of exams depends on the university you choose. We help you prepare for the most popular tests: IELTS and SAT. You can learn more in our materials and webinars with experts.

Essay writing

Foreign universities are known for their rigorous selection process: admissions committees strive to consider the applicant's personality, talents, and ambitions. At the same time, academic grades sometimes take a back seat, and an applicant's most important and valuable document becomes the essay.

A properly written motivational essay will tell you about skills, education level, upbringing, literacy, and intentions, so it is important to approach its writing with inspiration and a good understanding of what is being asked of you.
