I am from Syria and I am 23 years old. How can I get approval from the English school? If they approve me, what do I do about my visa?


Greetings from ApplyESL.com!

Thank you for your questions!
Schools will accept applications from countries all around the world.
In order to request an I-20 from US programs, you will need to provide the school
you apply to with a copy of your current passport and evidence in the form
of a financial document that you can afford to pay for your study abroad.

Once you submit your application and these documents to the school,
you can be issued the I-20 form necessary to apply for an F-1 student visa in the USA.
