Want to study Sports Medicine abroad

I am in the last year of MBBS, and will complete an internship in 2015. I am interested in doing a postgraduate in sports medicine abroad in a good university. Could you please guide me on the procedure?

Sports Medicine is a subspecialty that is pursued by medical doctors once they have earned their Doctor in Medicine (MD) and completed a residency-training program. Some of the top-ranked sports medicine schools in the USA are USC, University of Virginia and University of Michigan.For a graduate degree, the applicant will need to apply separately to all his preferred choices of universities. He will have to send in his transcripts from all universities and post secondary institutions he would have attended. In addition to this, he would be required to take either a GRE or GMAT exam depending on the university, along with his TOEFL or IELTS to test his English language proficiency (for international students). In addition to this, the applicant will also need to submit his CV, at least two recommendation letters, and any essays that the university of his/her choice may ask for. Some of the top universities with Sports Medicine programs in the UK are UCL, University of Bath, Cardiff University and Nottingham University. The application process for the UK is similar to the USA in the sense that each university will have its separate application where the student will have to upload his GRE/GMAT test scores, past education information and his CV. Each student will also have to submit a Statement of Purpose that will include further information about his part education, interests,internships/jobs and future plans.

I am planning to study in the US post-12th. As an international student there, will I be eligible for study abroad programs in other countries during college?  
 — Tarana

Most universities in the US have in-house programs or tie-ups with organizations that organize study abroad opportunities for students. These programs could be over a summer or during one or more semesters within the typical 4-year program. A student can pick from diverse options, which could be language programs in Brazil, France, and China or engineering research projects in Japan and Germany. Opportunities generally exist for students in all fields, but some require more planning those others.

I want to pursue an undergraduate Film Production course in Canada. Could you suggest universities that are competitive for their course?     
— Shane

The University of British Columbia and York University could suit your requirements for pursuing a course in Film Production. Admissions to the Film Production program (BFA) are highly competitive in these Universities. Their applicants have a strong academic background and usually have many films and video production or other creative credentials. The shortlisted students applying to these universities are bright and ambitious people from a diverse background. In terms of application, you will need to submit your 10th and 12th transcripts in addition to two recommendation letters, a resume and an English language test.
