How will COVID-19 impact your studies abroad

International universities accept online applications as usual. Both EDMUNDO and the international admissions teams are working hard to ensure all applications are being processed as normal. The teams are able to work remotely, so there should be minimal impact on the progress of your application.

Universities worldwide are aware that there will be a significant impact on many of our applicants’ preparation and final exam completion. International universities representatives have confirmed that academic entry criteria are likely to become more flexible and that universities will do all they can to support future students and to ensure they can progress to higher education.

In order to counteract the effects of language centres being closed worldwide, universities have adapted by offering free alternative online English testing means in order for students to be able to fulfil the universities’ English language requirements for admission to bachelor and master programmes.
