As we enter April, the journey toward university applications reaches its next stage with several important milestones on the horizon. Here’s what you should be mindful of:

  • 1. European and Dutch Deadlines: For those considering universities in Europe, particularly the Netherlands, April often marks many application deadlines. Be sure to check the specific deadlines for the programs and institutions you’re interested in and submit your applications accordingly.
  • 2. Admission decisions from US Universities: If you’ve applied to universities in the United States, April is the month when you can expect to receive final responses to your applications. Many universities adhere to the May 1st deadline for students to accept offers of admission, so keep a close eye on your emails and portals for updates.
  • 3. Preparation for May Exams: For students undertaking international curriculums such as the International Baccalaureate (IB), A levels, or Advanced Placement (AP) courses, April serves as a crucial period for exam preparation. Use this time wisely to review materials, practice exam questions, and seek assistance, if needed, to ensure you’re well-prepared for the upcoming exams.
  • 4. Planning for Next Year’s Applications: Grade 11 students, it’s never too early to start planning for university applications. Use April as an opportunity to research potential universities, explore different programs, and begin drafting your personal statements or essays. The earlier you start, the more time you’ll have to refine your applications and make informed decisions.
