If you want to study internationally as a postgraduate, you need to understand what universities are looking for and how you can stand out from the crowd. This is especially true for top international universities where there are many more good candidates than places available. This process is very different from undergraduate applications, especially the gaokao, China’s national college entrance examination. In fact, it’s more like applying for a job.

This session explains the differences between graduate study in the U.S. and the U.K. at both master’s and doctoral level; why you need to focus on the program you are targeting; how applications differ between universities (taking MIT and Cambridge as examples); and why your grades aren’t the most important part of your application.
