Take my greeting base on your age or maybe in your language. I am Ferdous Jannatul from Bangladesh. I came to South Korea 5th march of 2021. I am a university track undergraduate global Korean scholarship student. It's been 2 year since I came to Korea. From march 2021 I started my Korean language program in Konyang university. I graduated from my language school with Korean proficiency level 3. That was the minimal requirement for us to get into the college. I joined my university on February 28th of 2022. I am currently 2nd year student in Semyung university. I am doing double major. My major is industrial bio-pharmaceutical Science minor in cosmetic and beauty bio-technology.
So, from when I planned to studying in abroad??
After my high school graduation on 2018 i participated on national university entrance exam in my country. Unfortunate or fortunate I don't know but I didn't get in medical college as I wanted. I get in industrial clothing and fashion department. Without any option left in my hand I studied that major for 1year. In the mean-time I started to looking for scholarships in different countries. We all want's to focus on European countries for higher studies. But my motivation was No matter what happens wherever I got a scholarship to study bio-medicinal related course I am willing to learn The language and I will try my best to fit in the culture as well. I started to learn English and took english proficiency test, participated scientific Olympiad, joining taekwondo team, doing volunteer work. 1year I did every single thing I can do for make my profile stronger. Most importantly I did focus what I can do and I tried my best. So, If I wants to give you advice about preparing yourself for studying abroad should be: Do everything you can, don't miss a chance. There’s an Arabic saying ~ You miss 100% of the shots you don't take.
أن تخفق 100% في الطلقات التي لا تطلقها
Turn every stone upside down while you are on your dream journey. when I first came Korea I have no idea how to speak, read or write in Korean. Korean is my 5th language. I can speak Bengali, Hindi, Urdu and English. All other foreigner student in my language program we all communicate through English. But after 6 month of language school I was able to speak, read and write. Well, not so good but it's survive able . Haha. One more good things about studying abroad is You will get to know different countries culture, cuisine. Specially, so many beautiful souls around the world. While summer and winter vacation for around 4 month you can travel across the country as well. Korea has so many beautiful historical places to visit. I already traveled around 10 different cities so far. It's fun you travel, study and learn both at the same time. If you want's to study get your goals achieved you gotta start from now on. I will be rooting for all of you. Who want's to be the person the dreamed for so long. As I a mentor from Apply Korea I think I will be able to help you with study and lifestyle related things. I hope I was able to give you a chance to setting a new dream.
