UK’s academic reputation is globally renowned and it is known that having a graduate degree from a UK university will definitely propel one’s career to a significant level. However, the study environment in my country follows the theoretical system of education which is quite different and no soft skills are acquired. The UK maintains a quality management system with high standards in all fields. In recent years, all companies in Bangladesh are emphasizing hiring Bangladeshi graduates with degrees from abroad, as they see the transferrable skills carried forward from international education will play a key role in transforming their approach to business and believe these graduates are capable of doing so. The transferable skills from the UK are key to advancing graduates through organizational growth and gaining a competitive advantage. This reason attracted me to pursue a degree in the UK. A recent survey of International Graduation Results in 2019 produced by iGraduate by Universities UK International shows that 82% of international graduates say their UK degree is valuable for financial investment and a similar number of graduates say they are satisfied or very satisfied with their careers. About 83% think a UK degree has helped them get a job. These aspects have driven my ambition to get a degree from a UK institution.

My choice is the University of Bedfordshire because it incredibly welcomes international students and I am attracted to this course because it offers a different perspective in an area where I want to study. The university offers modern and secure on-campus accommodation which will add extra convenience and experience for international students. In addition, the University of Bedfordshire is dedicated to supporting international students to develop the skills, mental intelligence and creativity needed to improve in a constantly changing world and the competitive job market. To support students the University have invested heavily in their facilities to shape the physical and intellectual environment of learning.

In addition, the university has a good reputation for teaching, research and business partnerships. And it will be a great achievement for me if I get the opportunity to study at the University of Bedfordshire.
