Academic City is pleased to offer admission to its first-year students in two distinct cohorts, with the first starting in September and the second starting in January. Upon completion of their first year, both cohorts will merge to continue their academic pursuits. The application process is streamlined and can be efficiently completed through our online portal.

Our knowledgeable and friendly admissions team is available to assist prospective students during these hours through various means of communication, including phone, WhatsApp, and Facebook.
Admission to ACity is competitive, but the admission process is a personal one. Each application is reviewed holistically to understand the strength of each student’s academic preparation including their performance on final exams, counselor recommendations, and their personal career interests. We seek applicants from a variety of geographic, social, cultural, economic, and ethnic backgrounds.
