There are several reasons why I should have completed my higher degree in the UK. There is a long history of welcoming international students to study at UK universities and I like UK culture because they teach to be realistic. It is true that the UK is a well-known and well-liked destination for students looking to study abroad. Because of the UK's longstanding reputation for high-quality higher education, I have decided to pursue my higher education there. 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.
Affordable tuition fees have attracted me the most. In addition, an academic degree from the United Kingdom is recognized and acclaimed by employers around the world. The programme run from the BPP University London campus aims to assist future graduates and prepare them to become future pioneers in a changing world. It has around 16,000 students, studying across 13 centres, in eight locations across England and online around the world. 97.1% of BPP University graduates in employment are engaged in highly skilled occupations 15 months after graduation (HESA, The Graduate Outcome Survey, 2018/19). Moreover, BPP University pass rate is 96% but other university pass rate is below 90%. By studying this course, I will learn to analyze the international business environment and design corporate strategies for business expansion and growth worldwide. The MSc management Professional Development Planning (PDP) programme is taught for 18 months to increase the employment of future leadership professionals. It is built around workshops, coaching sessions and additional learning that will help establish a professional career with access to work placement opportunities. It would be a great honour for me if I get an opportunity to study at BPP University. For this reason, I have chosen the UK for the study where students can improve their knowledge and self-confidence. Above all, I chose the UK as my preferred destination and goal. The core modules will develop analytical skills in Personal Effectiveness, Leading Through Digital Disruption, Global Strategy and Sustainability, Customer Experience Strategy, Data Driven Decisions for Business, Management Essentials, Executive Leadership and Governance, and Business Project. So, I am confident that my professional goal makes me a suitable candidate for the course.
