Three Easy Steps
Step 1: GEMS Initial Review
Carefully review the available university programs and select the school(s) you wish to apply to. Complete the online pre-application form and submit it to GEMS.
After we review your pre-application, GEMS will assist you with completing the university’s application if you are an eligible candidate.
Contact us if you have any questions.
Step 2: University Application
GEMS will verify that you meet the minimum eligibility requirements as part of the GEMS Initial Review.
Next, you will be provided information about completing the application process for the program(s) for which you are eligible. This includes providing the necessary application and supporting documents (i.e. official transcript in English, financial statement and TOEFL score* if available) in person, email, fax or mail.
Step 3: Acceptance
We will review your complete application including the required supporting documentation and forward it to your selected program. Within approximately three weeks the university will contact you with an admission decision (conditional or unconditional).
GEMS cannot guarantee acceptance at the university you have applied, however we will assist you, should you be denied, with an additional application at another university for which you are eligible to apply.
