I think I speak for most people when I say that finishing the last exam/coursework of your degree is a great feeling, and that you want to end your university experience with a bang!

…And (breathes out) relax. That is of course assuming you’ve now finished your degree, in which case congratulations! Take some time to travel, get some sun and make the most of your well-deserved break!

This made my international visa application process easier, so my experience may not be representative of the average experience. Nevertheless, I will share my experiences and relevant hurdles when applying to international universities.Read More
