Other than study hard and achieve the highest academic grades possible, there's nothing you can really do to improve your chances that far ahead of applying. She might consider some relevant extra/super curriculars a couple of years ahead of the uni start date.

I don't know where that application deadline comes from - for Oxbridge the deadline has passed and if any other UK unis are in your top 10 then their deadline is 15th Jan. Rest of the world - who knows!

It depends on the subject you want to study. And universities are a lot more than just rankings in the world, make sure you actually like the atmosphere accommodation and location etc of where you’ll be staying.

Top 10 by which ranking? Most rankings have both Oxbridge unis in the top 10, and 1) you can only apply to one of them, and 2) you have missed the 2021 entry deadline for them both.

What are "California" and "Georgia Pennsylvania's"?

Edinburgh and LSE aren't typically in the top 10 Worldwide. The top two in the UK, that are top 10 Worldwide, are Oxford and Cambridge, which you haven't included - odd.

Given that you've not listed any subject qualifications (or SAT/ACT), I'm sceptical as to the seriousness of this thread.

For the US universities, check their EA and ED deadlines. There are a ton of essays to write. Like RogerOxon, I'm doubting the seriousness of this thread. It is highly unlikely that a student applying to Ivies (and are UCs even in the top 10?) have not done enough research on their part regarding deadlines.

LSE doesn't have a computer science degree.

Is it you applying or your sister?

If you apply for data science at LSE with a computer science PS then your chances of an offer are very small

I don't really understand what you need help with, but I'll tell you what I know at least.

It might depend on what country your sister is from, but you have to apply through UCAS in most cases. This is a website where you can apply to 5 universities in the UK. You will have to write a personal statement which is 4000 characters long if I remember correctly. You can watch some videos about this on Youtube. Your sister should include all of her achievements.

For the US, you have to apply to each university separately and it usually costs quite a lot of money. Each university has a separate admissions process so follow the instructions on their website and you'll be fine.

Also what rankings are you looking at that say that Edinburgh is top 10 in the world. I've looked at a few for Computer Science and none of them said what you're saying.

Here are the ones I found:
https://www.timeshighereducation.com...asc/cols/stats

https://www.topuniversities.com/univ...mation-systems

That being said it is not necessary for your sister to just apply to the top 10. Most high ranking universities will be just as good.

For applications to UK unis, the following page is a good place to start:

https://www.ucas.com/undergraduate/a...te-application

It boils down to listing all your academic qualifications and writing a personal statement that demonstrates interest and suitability for the course that is being applied for. You can apply for five courses via UCAS, but you only get one statement for all of them.
