Applying to U.S. Graduate School



Are you planning to study for a graduate degree in the United States?

This online course will guide you through the process of applying for a master’s or doctoral program using self-paced (asynchronous) activities and live one-to-one consultations. It is suitable for applicants at any step in the admission process.

Outcomes include reflecting on personal and professional goals, researching potential graduate programs, producing professional emails to contact prospective programs and references, gathering necessary materials, writing a clear admission essay (personal statement) and resume, and funding your graduate degree.

Course Format

In four weeks, you will work at your own speed through a series of modules to help you understand and complete your applications. You will identify suitable programs and prepare the necessary materials to apply to them.

In addition, you will meet individually with an ELI advisor three times during the course. You can use these consultations for feedback on any step of the process, including comparing programs, understanding application forms, and revising your personal statement.
