Because you will be investing time, effort and money in this venture, it is important to START THE PROCESS EARLY. And when we say early, the ideal time to begin exploring your options is at least 9 - 12 months prior to the desired departure date.
Also imperative is that you look at the process of education as you would a college course: the time and energy you will spend exploring programs, applying for programs, and submitting required documents by specified deadlines can be time-consuming and requires good time-management skills. What we mean to say is, take this process very seriously.
