How to Apply for Study Abroad Programs
University American College Skopje students who want to study abroad, must apply through the Office of International Programs. They are authorized to handle all such applications from UACS students. The process of communication and application begins at the host university.
Guidelines for completion of the application process:
Completed study abroad applications must be turned in to the Office of International Programs according to the Semester/Academic year.
Most universities have on their websites dates when students should submit their applications and the deadlines for the application. Universities in the USA generally ask students to complete their application 3-6 months in advance. Universities in the EU are similar with their application process and require 2-3 months in advance of the commencement of the semester.
Prior to the arrival to the host university, UACS study abroad applicant shall be responsible for obtaining a visa and related travel documents necessary to pursue studies in a particular country, such as satisfying host country student visa requirements and other formalities for study abroad students. Both participating universities will provide all necessary student documentation for visa application if needed.
