The Fall intakes start in late August and ends in late December or early January whereas the Spring intakes begin in January and ends by early May.
English Proficiency Requirements
The English Proficiency requirements, again, is subject to the University you are applying to and the country you have opted for. But, one sure thing is that you will have to prove your ability to communicate in the language, which will be demonstrated through your scores in some standardized tests like TOEFL, IELTS and/or PTE or some other specific tests as prescribed.
