I am applying for an M Sc Political Science to UK. My teachers are asking about things that they should write in the recommendation letter. Can you please give suggestions?
— Gopal Dattatreya

The MSc Political Science application for most UK universities will require two ‘Recommendation Letters’. References should address your personal qualities, potential to succeed in the profession, and your ability to perform well in the classroom. Choose references who know you in an academic or professional context and who are familiar with your academic achievements, credentials, career aspirations and work history. It is preferred that one of these letters be from an academic source (professor) that can attest to your ability to successfully complete a rigorous graduate degree program. The other letter may be from a non-academic source (employer) that is familiar with your work history and/or career goals. All letters of recommendation must be submitted using the online recommendation form found in the online application system.

I am interested in studying for a Bacherlors in Fine Arts degree to the USA. However, I’ve missed deadlines to several programs. Can I apply after the deadline has passed?
— Shaivali Sharma

Most universities in the US are very fastidious about the application deadlines. However, there have been a few instances in the past in some colleges where student applications have been accepted after the deadlines. Late application requests may be handled on a case-by-case basis. Please contact the Admissions Office through email and request permission to apply late.

My daughter is studying in Grade XI in CBSE Board. Her main subjects are Maths, Physics and Chemistry. She wants to study Architecture in the US. What will she require for application?
