Deadlines for university applications can vary depending on the country, mainly because of the visa process. In countries where obtaining a visa is simple and quick, the application deadline is usually later compared to countries with longer visa processing times. For instance, if you’re applying to universities in the USA, Canada, UK, or Australia, you’ll need to apply and start your visa process 3-5 months before the class commencement dates. On the other hand, universities in countries like Malaysia and Poland may have a deadline of 1-2 months before the classes start. In countries such as Turkey and North Cyprus, the deadlines might be a week or two before the class commencement dates, thanks to their easier visa process and visa exemptions for many countries worldwide.
