If you have a portfolio blog where you share your work, thoughts, experiences, and achievements, this will set you apart from 95% of other students and graduates.

Regardless of whether you aim to apply to an internship, scholarship, or student event abroad, there are ten crucial application principles that you have to thoroughly understand if you don’t want to just keep getting rejections.
These are the general, unbreakable laws of any successful application, and so we cannot stress enough how important it is that you understand them well and keep them in mind whenever you write any type of application for programs abroad. Find it here.
