Q.1 What is the ideal time to start my application process?
The admission process for any overseas university/ institution is lengthy.
For UK, ideally one should start the application process at least 3-4 months prior to the intake date.
For Australia, one should send the applications at least 6 months prior to the intake date.
If one starts the process of shortlisting and applying to universities early, it would benefit the student interested. It betters the chances of receiving admission as well as get priority for accommodation, bursaries and scholarships.

However, while applying for your visa, you must show evidence of full financial support from other sources to cover university/institution tuition and living costs. Students are always advised not to depend on part time jobs for their living expenses.
