The EMLE programme is difficult enough without the extra pressure of scheduling travel and worrying about travel documents. Depending on your country of origin, applying for, processing, and delivering travel documents such as study visas can take a significant amount of time. Finding out this information with respect to your specific country falls on your shoulders.
Booking flights, organizing luggage, setting up bank accounts, handling local community registration, obtaining identification documents; these all take time as well. The more tasks you can complete before you depart, the easier and less stressful your studies will be. Since you may be dealing with four different countries (your home country and three different country study locations), it is important that you research how your bank deals with international money transfers so you have access to cash.
A good starting point is through your country’s consular website, as well as the consular websites of your destination countries. After that, the easiest is a simple web search for the information you are seeking.
Once again, we stress that you start early so your experience can be one of scholarship instead of stress.
"For me, the EMLE programme was a superb experience. The academic standards were rigorous and the quality of the student cohort was excellent. Having previously studied at two top English Universities, I have no doubt that that the teaching I received at: Rotterdam, Aix-Marseilles and UC Berkeley; was of an equally world-class standard.
Law graduates (like myself) will benefit from studying Law and Economics. The economic perspective brings a wealth of new ideas to the table. I have found these invaluable as I now proceed through my training in London as an environmental and public-law Barrister."
