HOW DO I APPLY TO UNIVERSITY?

You need to apply to university using an online application system.
Your school or college can give you a ‘buzzword’ that allows you to login to the website.

IMPORTANT DATES

Your school or college will also have their own deadline to ensure that they have time to check your application and write your references. You should start your research as soon as possible!
