Two years ago I made a decision to study abroad, and I have never regretted this choice.
After completing my bachelor’s degree from Pakistan in Business Management with specialization in Human Resource Management I planned to study abroad. Being an outstanding student in the class I have been accepted for an ERASMUS+ program in Europe. The program was for a master’s degree in three different countries Italy, Germany and the UK after securing excellent grades in Italy and Germany I moved to the University of Hull, UK. The main thing which I felt the most were the language bearer during my stay at Italy and Germany I always felt like an outsider in the community when I came to the UK, I felt like home I can easily communicate, understand and adopt the culture.
That makes easy for me to fit in the British educational system. As the lecturer is every week but I do get free time, and that’s different from my home country, Italy and Germany and I can easily do independent study. The first month I feel a bit culture shocked. The weather, the size of the university, the study environment, and the lifestyle because there are many different people from different cultures and continents. Also, to find the Halal food and Muslim community was hard to find in the start but now Hull feels like home. Whenever I went to another city like Manchester, Birmingham, London etc I feel missed Hull and when I reach to Hull dual carriageway, I felt like I am home.
I’m glad I made this decision because I learned a lot.
