People often ask me “What do you say about studying abroad?”. I told them it was the best decision I ever made. BBA in the UK has transformed my life into better. I carried on completing my MBA and DBA programs as well in the UK. I have managed to secure a good position in a multi-national company after graduation and also ended-up becoming a British Citizen flawlessly.
If you’re thinking about studying abroad, then you’ve just found me to share with you some personal experience and preliminary stages that I’ve been through.
Set a Goal
Throughout my school and college life, I was regarded by my peer group as an ambitious and goal oriented person. I set a goal from early age to achieve highest academic qualification from well-known International University and Travel the World.
Make a Plan
With that spirit, I determined to go abroad for BBA, soon after completing my A-level. While my friends were busy picking-up local university application forms and preparing for admission tests, I was instead attending the International Education Fairs, gathering information and preparing for IELTS.
Fortunately, I came across a Spot Admission desk from my visit to International Education Fair, organised by a British Council Agent. I couldn’t emphasize more how useful that Spot Admission event was, providing me the opportunity to meet a couple of major university representatives from the UK and Australia. I spoke with them directly regarding important issues such as course, visa process, tuition fees and accommodation.
I made my mind up to select an UK university for my first-degree: BBA program. I finalised the paperwork right there with the spot admission team. Shortly after that, with the grace of Almighty God, I was granted visa-entry clearance to the UK. It was one of the happiest moments of my life! From that moment, my life has gradually transformed into better and I carried on completing my MBA and DBA programs as well in the UK.
I adapted to the British weather, culture and way of life quite well than I anticipated. Along with my studies from the beginning, I was exposed to the wealth of opportunities in many forms; be that meeting interesting people from around the world or travelling to other European countries. Moreover, I was able to cover my living cost and a part of tuition fees with a part-time job quite easily.
To be honest with you, I have achieved way more than what I expected initially. Not only that I have managed to secure a good position in a multi-national company after MBA, but also ended-up becoming a British Citizen flawlessly. Now I’m settled permanently in the UK and couldn’t appreciate more the decision I’ve made about 10 years ago.
By the way, my journey toward British citizenship was a long one. I’ve mentioned this just to indicate the possibility. If you wish to gain a dual-citizenship, you have to stay around longer. One way to do this is to go for lengthy program such as DBA or PhD. In addition, you got to be determined, taking necessary steps to overcome challenges and picking up every opportunity along the way. Remember, if you have a goal, pursue it relentlessly, anything is achievable. In essence – Listen to your heart and lay down the path.
