Applying to study internationally

The application process is different and each country has a different system. Some want you to apply directly to an institution, others prefer you apply through an agent.

Using an agent can help you arrange visas and other documentation and they can provide advice.

You can read case studies of students studying abroad in our REACH magazine.

UNICAEN also provides extra French summer courses.
