6. Why did you choose to study that?

To be honest, I didn’t choose this subject particularly well. I took the university admission test in the business faculty and based on my performance on the exam and interview with faculty members, I was offered this subject from their end. I wanted to study in the commercial faculty and now I feel very happy that I was offered this major.

In general, this subject requires extensive study, research, group work, and other academic activities. In many cases, things are new and challenging but I think they can be conquered with passion and commitment. For me, it’s a difficult but very entertaining subject.

Business is without a doubt my favorite subject. I am very intrigued to discover the connection of this topic in our daily life and the global economic structure has made it more complex, yet more fascinating.

In my early childhood, I studied at a local English middle school and then my parents switched me to a government school when I was in the seventh grade.

10. What was your favourite subject at school?

Organizational behavior and microeconomics were my two favorite subjects so far. These two subjects have built my foundation and my love for the entire course and I still find it fascinating. 

11. What is the best thing about your university OR school?

I love my university life, the classes, the friends, the teachers, the university life, my freedom to do so many things and my participation in some charities organized by the university are equally important to me if I have to select the best of myself. university, I would choose my exposure to a diverse culture and academic life that has motivated and inspired me to do even better than I initially thought. I was exposed to life and an era that was unimaginable to me and that is the best part of my college life so far. 

12. What part of university life do you like best?

Well, I think my answer above already covers this answer, however, I would say that I enjoy most of my college life and my exposure to a whole new culture that I never imagined is the best part of my college life. a vision for my future and potential job sectors and I think this is the best part. 

13. What is the educational system like in your country?

I am glad you asked that question. In our country, elementary education is compulsory for everyone and is government funded unless someone wants to send their children to a private English middle school. The secondary and tertiary systems are also administered. Government-controlled educational institutions are cheaper and curricula are presented and monitored by the education authority. On the other hand, the private educational institutions have to incorporate some of the national curricula but mostly follow their own curriculum. All universities and many colleges offer higher education in English. The technical and professional colleges and universities are also popular in our country and mainly offer certifications and degrees in selected technical and practical subjects Private universities are approved by the government-controlled bodies and have to follow their rules very strictly I am pleased that in Many changes have been made to our education system in recent years, and innovation and quality of modern education are a vision that our country has already started to implement. 

14. What are your future study plans?

It will take me about 7-8 months to get my degree and then I will try to get admission to a foreign university that is known for its better education. There I will do my master’s degree and get involved in a job. In addition to my job, I plan to enroll in a professional MBS course to continue my education. When time permits, I would also like to take some research-based courses that relate to my academic background and interests. 

15. What kind of job would you prefer after graduation?

I would prefer to work in a multinational company that offers me a position related to my academic background and a positive work environment to learn and explore new things. At first, I wouldn’t worry too much about my title and my salary, but the company needs to have enough room for further professional development. 

16. What is your career plan after you graduate?

During the first years, I will work in a multinational company. Then maybe 10 years from now, I will plan to start my own business. I would like to be an entrepreneur instead of working in a company for the rest of my life. I know being an entrepreneur is not that easy and requires a lot of dedication and commitment, however, I would work towards this plan after finishing my graduation. 

17. Why are you taking the IELTS test?

I mainly take the test to get a band score that I need to apply to the most prestigious universities in Australia or Canada. Since I am planning to do my master’s degree at a renowned foreign university, the IELTS score is a requirement. To prove my ability to deal with the English language, I need the score in order to even apply to these universities. 

18. How do you think that studying abroad is different from studying in one’s own country?

I think both emotional and logical factors come into play when differentiating the two. First, abroad one rarely has relatives or close relatives and they are alone, this makes students more responsible and independent. They learn to make decisions. Second, the curriculum in developed countries is updated more frequently compared to less developed or developing countries. This helps students to benefit better. Finally, while studying at foreign universities, students can learn about different customs, cultures, and traditions.

19. What problems do you think students can face while studying abroad and why?

I think problems arise when things are not planned well enough. For example, some people cannot take too much cold without knowing the weather conditions of a country where they study in winter. This creates problems for them. Even more, for example, it’s another factor that people don’t plan ahead of time. People take a course at a university without knowing many details about it, but when they study it, they realize the gist and tend to settle into problems. However, other problems we face are homesickness. I think language barriers are the other problem, even food for some. But I think people are determined that the problems seem small. 

20.Do you think you will have many difficulties adapting to new culture ?

I think it would not be very difficult for me to adapt to a new culture as I am already exposed to different customs and cultures in my home country. However, adapting to a new culture is always a bit difficult, especially when it is very different from your hometown culture, but I’ve read about the country’s traditions. And I hope nothing would shock me.
