The application process is a lengthy process and requires a multi stage timeline to ensure all the requirements are met before the deadline. Taking all of this into account, applying as early as possible is the best way to go. After all, the sooner you gain acceptance into a university, the sooner you can arrange your travels. We encourage students to make their own deadlines ahead of the actual deadline in their calendars to avoid disappointment and stress. Having said that, application deadlines vary but in general most programs begin during the months of September/October and applications for these programs open a year before the stated date. At Career DNA, we encourage students to begin with the process at least 15 months before the deadlines.
