5261.png As there are thousands of graduates from top universities in Turkey, there is a high competition. That’s why I have decided to do a master degree thinking that I should improve myself more. While I was a senior at Bilkent University Faculty of Business Administration, I was keeping in touch with some educational consultants to find top universities that match with what I really want. I have also made some research about “postgraduate study in foreign countries” and found out that University of Bristol is one of the most reputable having years of academic excellence. It is also ranked as one of top 10 in the UK meaning that the University has high qualified academic staff, wide range of courses for each unit and several facilities for social activities.

Receiving an acceptance letter from MSc in Accounting, Finance and Management has made me excited because I will be a part of the UK education system like other international students are. This unit has prompted us to choose different courses from different fields. So instead of dealing with the courses randomly assigned to you, you can choose whatever you want to study. By doing so, you can expand your perspectives with respect to your interest which is a good way to encourage us to be more enthusiastic.

I have also applied for International Recruitment Scholarship thinking that I am coming from a different country and may have better ideas and skills like other scholarship owners. I have not only awarded with a certain amount, but also awarded with such a title which makes me more confident and proud.

In addition to those academic related issues, Bristol is a typical student city having thousands of international students coming all around the world. Whenever you climb Park Street, you will see Chinese, Italian, Greek and Russian students. Furthermore, you can find different style of cafes, bars, restaurants, pubs and clubs meaning that you will definitely find something belongs to you in this city.
So I hope it makes you clear because University of Bristol and the city itself could be your future. I can easily say that Bilkent University has provided me a great past, but on the other hand I feel that University of Bristol will assure a greater future.
