Abdulazizjon is currently pursuing his PhD programme in Telecommunication Engineering at Czech Technical University in Prague. He found the programme and enrolled via StudyPortals. We asked Abdulazizjon to share his story about his experience of searching and applying to a university abroad.
My name is Abdulazizjon Abdullaev. I am 37 years old and I am from Uzbekistan. I am studying at the Czech Technical University in Prague now. I had applied for this University on the Erasmus Mundus programme of eASTANA and I seized the opportunity to study here. Now, I am a PhD student. My field of research is Telecommunication Engineering. The duration of the study is one year. I regularly visited StudyPortals.
I had known about my host university from this site, at first. This portal helped me to find the right university. Then, I decided to file the required documentation for PhD study in this website. I am tremendously grateful to the portal for helping me to find out and define my next aims.
I had had a choice between many universities, but I chose Czech Technical University because I think that this university is one of the best universities of the world in the technical area. On top of that, Prague is very beautiful and comfortable for living, too.Some people claim that there is very little chance for older people to obtain some grant for studying. However, it was absolutely vice-versa in my case. Everything depends on our determination, perseverance and hard work.
I havent got IELTS or another certificate of my language skills, but I had the desire. I improved my language (English) skills, I gathered other necessary documents, and made my plan of study. I have published a number of scientific articles regarding my research topic.
I have tried, tried and tried infinitely I advise everybody to believe, try and not give up. In the end you will reach your dream. Improve your skills and visit StudyPortals!
