Know all the Intakes 

The Indian education system has only one intake system but the universities and colleges abroad have multiple intakes in one academic year. So, international students have all the chances they require to apply in one foreign University. Countries like Australia, New Zealand, UK and other countries have multiple Intakes. So as an international student if you fail to get admission in one Intake then you can participate in the next Intake. 


What are some different kinds of Intakes? 

Most of the universities abroad have 2 intakes in total. One of them is Fall and the other one is Spring. The Fall intake starts in September and the other one starts in January and ends in May. 

There can be situations where the numbers of intakes will differ based on the program and institution. Every student should call our educational consultants for more information about the intakes. Our educational consultants can provide you with detailed information of the university and respective intakes of the universities. 


Why do universities abroad allow 2 intakes?

Most of the universities abroad receive multiple applications every year and in order to reduce the difficulty of their administration they allow both intakes for domestic and international students. The universities keep the option available for spring intake considering any constraints due to which a student might not be able to take admission in the fall intake.

Are you confused about the intake ?

Every student should consider a few factors before choosing the intake such as your scores, entrance test scores, acceptance rates, job opportunities . As per the standard practice one should start 

We recommend you to start with your applications at least 10-12 months before the date of commencement of your program. For the Fall semester, ensure to have your score by April and for Spring, start no later than August.



Let’s compare the two intakes:



You might face severe competition as many students prefer this intake and chances of your application being accepted are minimal


You might not face much competition in this intake as not much students prefer to opt for it due to which acceptance rate of your applications is quite high


Which intake do Indian students prefer?

Most Indian students opt for the September intake since it works in line with the completion of school or under-graduation in India. Students going for research programs often prefer the Fall/September intake since many professors choose to start their research in the beginning of the year and thus acquiring an internship or assistantship is easier in this intake than the Spring/January intake.
