Hello everyone, my name is Bariq Burhan and I am from Pakistan but now in New Zealand. I have obtained a Bachelor's degree in Modern Language and Business Studies in the University of Lahore.
Ever since I was child, I always wanted to excel and be good in what I do. I really wanted to change my life and this kept me studying hard during the school years. I finished high school and got into the budget seat for my university's first year studies. I worked meanwhile by taking night shifts in a hostel in order to pay for the living. Unfortunately the government decreased budget seats in my program, and so for the next 3 years I had to take a study loan. It did not change my motivation to study hard and work meanwhile, I managed to earn good marks and do everything on time. This made me understand that I can do a lot and that I can also study in a Master's programme in order to reach my goals.
Recently I was informed that I have got into the ERASMUS MUNDUS programme: Master in Strategic Project Management. However, to proceed with my studies, I have to invest around12 000 euros for tuition fee and plus living in United Kingdom, Italy and Sweden. I really would like to study abroad and have the opportunity for the higher education. I truly believe that this Master's would give me many opportunities in the future and I really wish to study there. Thank you for taking time to read my story.
