The process of application is individualized and consists of a review of the inquirer’s background and proposals for a programme of study. Each application is treated individually and on its own merits.

Usually, having first read through the website of their chosen overseas University thoroughly, applicants have formed a clear idea of their aims and the potential route to achieving this. They have some view of what their learning contract may look like, even if this has yet to be worked out in detail. European-American Extension College can assist at this stage with advice and support, as well as assisting the applicant by handling their application on behalf of the University concerned.

Once contact has then been made by email, we then review the following items from the candidate for admission:

  • A copy of the identity page of a government-issued ID document or passport;
  • A full resumé or curriculum vitæ;
  • A proposal detailing the degree to be sought and the route by which this may be achieved.

This is usually followed by a consideration of whether mentoring for the proposal can be provided with the resources available. At this stage, discussion may take place with the proposed mentor and the learning contract may take shape.

Only once these components are in place will the first payment of fees be required from the candidate and then they will be formally matriculated onto their programme of study.

Important notes for applicants

Before making application, the prospective applicant should satisfy themselves that the degree or other academic award of their chosen overseas University will be suitable for their present and anticipated future needs. In doing so they should be aware of the content of the status and recognition pages on the respective University’s website and should also make enquiries, in advance, of any third party from whom they may require acceptance of their credential. Neither the College nor any affiliated University make any claims of acceptance by third parties except where a specific agreement exists to that effect. Applicants should also review the terms and conditions of the College.

By making application, the applicant confirms that they understand that all credentials granted by the College’s affiliated universities are granted on the basis of overseas status and authority, and that this status and authority is sufficient for their needs.

The credentials awarded by the College’s affiliated overseas Universities are not, and are not intended to be the equivalent of, United Kingdom, European Union or accredited United States of America qualifications. The applicant further undertakes that he or she will not use any qualification awarded in such a way as to create a misleading or incorrect impression that it is a United Kingdom, European Union or accredited United States of America qualification, or the incorrect impression that the holder is medically qualified or of similar standing.

In making application, the applicant understands that the College’s affiliated overseas Universities reserve the right to make all necessary changes to student programmes and mentoring arrangements at any time. Changes may be made to the jurisdiction or location of any affiliated overseas University and to its accreditation arrangements at any time without notice.
