    I'm always not sure about the usage of "postuler", I made several phrases as following:

    "postuler les universites"
    "postuler aux universites"
    "postuler pour les universites"

    which one is correct? could someone give me some examples to identify this word?

    thanks for your help~

    you postulate when you apply for a job, a position, not to an institution; concerning the master, are you the teacher or a student? if student, I would rather say "je m'inscris (=to register) au master de science"

    on dit "poser sa candidature pour un master"... ou candidater se dit aussi je pense mais c'est plus rare. si on dit postuler cela veut dire que on veut un poste de prof ou d'assistant....
