Enhance your qualifications

EF’s postgraduate programs prepare students for entrance to a Master’s degree, Master of Business Administration degree or PhD program at an international university. These 6-, 9- or 11-month intensive programs provide you with all the linguistic and academic skills necessary for postgraduate study.

To qualify for these programs you must have a recognized bachelor’s degree (or the equivalent) and the language skills required for this level of study. For students wishing to pursue an MBA, you will normally need at least two years work experience, although some of our partner universities accept successful EF Pre-MBA Program graduates with less than two years of work experience.

Progress to your choice of university We can provide successful program graduates with guaranteed acceptance to one of our partner universities offering Master’s, MBA or PhD programs. Not only do we guarantee placement at an EF partner university, but we can also assist you with your application to virtually any Master’s, MBA or PhD program in your country of study. Our Pre-Master’s & Pre-MBA and PhD alumni have been accepted to the University of Oxford, University of Cambridge, Harvard University, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania, just to name a few.

For students wishing to pursue a PhD, you must have completed a Master’s degree and be ready to begin work on your thesis proposal.

A tailored program EF’s postgraduate programs are tailored for students who are bound for graduate tuition, and offer the flexibility of studying for either 6, 9 or 11 months. You will take specialist module classes in an academic area of your choice, to help prepare you for your postgraduate degree and build your overall confidence. Across our program destinations in the UK, USA, Australia, Germany and France, we will ensure that you reach the required academic and language standards in order to succeed.

English and exam training One of the goals of EF’s postgraduate preparation programs is to help you perfect your specialized academic skills.

Therefore, our programs include highly structured exam training for IELTS, TOEFL and GRE/GMAT exams, as well as a wide range of elective classes in your academic area. You’ll receive the best possible preparation for your future studies and gain the confidence and knowledge to succeed in a competitive academic environment. Some of our Australian and US partner universities even allow entry without TOEFL or IELTS scores after successful completion of EF's Pre-Master’s or Pre-MBA Program.

School system of the United Kingdom Why study in the UK? The UK’s education system is widely regarded as one of the best in the world – and you’ll benefit from all it has to offer with the help of EF. Once you graduate from an EF University Preparation Program, you’ll not only get to enjoy the world-leading facilities found at universities across the nation but also expert tuition and Britain’s renowned student life. Education in the UK Compulsory education begins at the age of five and finishes at the age of 16 when students take their General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSEs) in up to 10 subjects. Afterward, students can take A Levels at a sixth form college. Students usually study three to four subjects, which are commonly related to their desired degree subject. A Level grades are a determining factor in university admittance.

The bachelor’s degree Undergraduate students in the UK typically pursue a bachelor’s degree that specializes in one subject for three years. Entrance requirements for international students include English proficiency (with a minimum IELTS level 6.0) and an additional year of secondary school, known as an EF University Foundation Program, which is equivalent to Grade 13.

Master’s, MBA and PhD degrees A traditional Master’s or MBA degree typically lasts one year and requires successful completion of both exams and a dissertation to graduate. Some specialized careers require the completion of a doctoral program or PhD, which includes four to five years of advanced study and research. For most of these programs, international students are required to have a recognized undergraduate degree and an English level of at least IELTS level 6.5. MBA programs normally require at least two years of work experience.

School system of the USA Why study in the USA? US universities are a regular fixture in global university rankings. In fact, 25 of the world’s top 50 universities are located in the country. With EF, you’ll have the opportunity to apply to these institutions while placement is guaranteed at any of our esteemed partner universities. Education in the USA Schooling is mandatory for all children aged six to 16. Elementary school typically runs from Grade 1 to Grade 6 (ages 6 to 12), and Grades 7 to 8 (ages 13-14) are spent at a junior high or middle school. Grades 9-12 (ages 15 to 18) are attended at a high school.

Community colleges Community colleges provide a two-year associate’s degree program, often used as a springboard to a four-year bachelor’s degree at university. Community colleges have fewer admission requirements than four-year institutions. Liberal arts colleges A liberal arts college is an institution that places emphasis primarily on undergraduate study in the liberal arts and sciences. Some also offer graduate programs primarily in business administration, law, nursing and medicine. Liberal arts colleges can be private or public.

Public universities Public universities, commonly referred to as state universities, are founded and operated by state government entities, receiving most of their funding from the state and/or federal government. Generally, these universities have statewide admission requirements and in general cost less than private universities. Private universities Private universities receive no governmental financial support. They are funded through faculty research grants, tuition fees and alumni donations. The major reasons why students choose a private university are often due to its small class size, technological resources and research facilities.

School system of Germany 60

The German school system prepares students for entrance to higher education at the country’s top universities. Why study in Germany? German universities combine centuries of academic heritage with state-of-the-art facilities to ensure students graduate with a prestigious degree. As well as German universities, the language and academic skills gained with EF will allow you to attend university in Austria and Switzerland. Education in Germany From the age of six or seven (depending on the state), children attend an elementary school called Grundschule. They then progress to either a Hauptschule, which prepares students for a vocational education, or a Realschule, which has a broader range of emphases for intermediate pupils, or a Gymnasium, which prepares students for higher education with grades 11 to 12 or 13. There, students study up to 10 subjects before taking the Abitur, which is the academic qualification required to enter German universities. University Undergraduate students in Germany typically pursue a bachelor’s degree which specializes in one subject for three years. Entrance requirements for international students include a German proficiency test (TestDaF) and – if the student’s high school diploma is not considered equivalent to the Abitur – an additional year of secondary school in Germany, known as Studienkolleg, which is the equivalent to grade 13 at Gymnasium. Universities of applied sciences (Fachhochschulen) focus on a practical scientific approach. The range of subjects is generally not as extensive and is focused on certain subject areas, such as technology, industry, social affairs or media. The integrated practical phases are comprised of internships spanning several weeks, extended project phases or entire practical semesters.

ef.admissions@ef.com

Master’s, MBA or PhD degrees: Ages 21+ A master’s or MBA degree typically lasts one year and requires both exams and a thesis to graduate. Some specialized careers require the completion of a doctoral program or PhD, which includes four to five years of advanced study and research. For most of these programs, international students are required to have a recognized undergraduate degree (or Master's for a PhD program) and a German level of at least C1. MBA programs normally require at least two years of work experience.

At Le Lycée, students spend three years studying for their Baccalauréat général, which is the qualification required to enter university. Undergraduate Students can apply to their chosen public and private universities once they have gained the necessary academic and language qualifications. Public universities accept all applicants who have the Baccalauréat général or international equivalent; private institutions, however, have a much stricter application process, including an entrance exam. Tuition fees also vary depending on the type of university and course. Undergraduate degrees usually last for three years and focus on one subject. Students collect up to 60 ECTS (credits) per year and need 180 to graduate.
