Are You Qualified?

There are a number of ways that one should be qualified before enrolling in a programme of higher education. At New World University, we believe that know one knows you better than you know yourself, and we maintain a policy of self assessment when it comes to being ready to succeed in an academic programme. Here are some issues you may wish to consider as you make your decision.

English Proficiency

At this time English is the only language of instruction available through New World University. While we do not require any test of English proficiency to enrol, we urge you to consider that to succeed in any of our programmes, a working knowledge of English is required so that you may read and understand the suggested study materials and instructions. If you have successfully completed study in a previous programme in English, we expect you can succeed in our programmes as well.

In addition, if your use of written English is uncertain, we strongly urge you to take advantage of our discussion forum, one section of which is devoted entirely to being a friendly place where students can practice writing English and receive constructive advice on how to improve.

Academic Preparation

Are you prepared academically for university level studies? That is a more challenging question to answer than you might think, and it's one that no entry test can reliably predict. Here are some questions to ask yourself as part of your self-assessment.

  • Did you complete a secondary education programme?
  • Have you ever enrolled in a higher education programme before?
  • Are you capable of understanding academic material that you have read?
  • Do university graduates you know recommend you consider higher education?


While assistance is available through our discussion forum should you need questions answered about the material you are studying, in general your schedule is entirely up to you. This means that you must remained disciplined, continuing your studies as you can throughout your programme. We have observed that students who otherwise may not seem ready but who have the determination to succeed usually will — and that those who are otherwise well prepared but not determined often will not do as well. Do you have the drive to complete your programme? Only you can decide.

Deciding When To Apply

Some universities make it difficult to know when to apply. They maintain application deadlines, and have sometimes as few as one start date per year. At New World University we know that once you've made the decision to move forward with your degree or other qualification, you probably want to start as soon as possible. And with our educational model of guided independent study, you can do exactly that!

What that means is that you may apply to join our community at any time, and as soon as your application has been processed, you may start right away.

Put simply, the time to apply is now!

What Happens Next?

Once your application is received, we'll review it and respond with a list of necessary documents. You will be able to send us those documents by scanning them and sending them to us by email as a PDF document. Instruction on how to do this will accompany our request.

Generally speaking, the documents required will be a government-issued identification, such as a passport, and any transcripts from previous institutions you have attended.

At that time, you will also receive information about enrolling in your first subject so you can start progress right away toward your chosen degree or other qualification. Note that you may not graduate or have a transcript sent from us on your behalf until we have received all required documents.
