Steps to study abroad

Globedock has been helping students like you to study abroad. We know what it takes to set you up for success with assistance on course and visa applications, travel and feeling at home in your new destination.

1. Research

Do a little research before you speak to us. Get an idea of the subject areas that interest you the most. You might also look at some course descriptions, university reviews and their locations. Start a wish list of your preferences and begin to narrow down your selection.

Research can also include asking your friends and family. Have they studied overseas? Where did they go? What did they like about it?

What if you don’t know where to start? Don’t worry, come to one of our offices and our counsellors will help get you started.

One final word of advice – don’t trust everything you read online. Some reviews from other students might have been influenced by a single negative personal experience or choosing a course that wasn’t right for them. It doesn’t always mean you will feel the same way. Globedock can ensure you get accurate and non-biased advice.

2. Speak to one of our Globedock counselors

When you’re ready, come to our office at Gabon Street (Dembel to Meskel Flower) road, Next to Dreamliner Hotel
Jemea Building, 6th floor, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Our Counselors are having a friendly reception and a wealth of professional advices and personal experience from different study locations all over the world.

Bring your wish-list and course preferences along with you to our office as a starting point. Our counselor will work through all the big and small details to ensure the best possible fit between you, your future university and your preferred area of study.

3. Make your application

After you’ve chosen your course and university or school, it’s time to apply. Your Globedock counselor will support your university and course applications. We take our job very seriously and follow the strictest legal and ethical standards.

Your counselor will personally contact your chosen university or school to make sure they support your application to improve your chances of acceptance.

4. Accepting your offer

Once the university or school receives your application it will be assessed and you will be notified of the result. It can take a few weeks for your application to be processed. As we have good linkages with large number of universities, we assure you high rate of acceptance.

You’ll then receive a letter of acceptance and an acceptance form. Before accepting your offer, your counsellor will read it carefully through with you and check any conditions that may apply.

If you are accepted for more than one course or school, we’ll help you decide which option is best for you.

It’s natural to be nervous as you wait for the outcome of your course applications. If you are feeling anxious, we want you to tell us. This is perfectly normal and we can help you feel more confident.

5. Student Visa

Following acceptance, it’s time to apply for your student visa. Globedock can provide you with some information to help make sure you are well positioned to navigate this process with the authorized migration departments.

6. Ready, Steady, Go!

Congratulations! You’re off on a huge adventure. There are lots of things to think about during this time and your Globedock counsellor will help out along the way with advice on matters such as insurance, SIM cards and opening a bank account.

We host regular pre-departure sessions throughout the year to help prepare you for student life in your new country.
