I decided to study my Masters in England because the universities there hold the top positions in higher education worldwide due to the outstanding education they provide. Also, England is a cosmopolitan country where I know I will meet people from all over the world; and a masters degree there is usually one year, regardless of the specialisation. I also chose it because I can easily travel to Europe.

The visa process was a little bit confusing when I first started because everything had to be done online. However, after exploring the UKBA and Worldbridge websites and carefully reading the information provided, it became much clearer exactly what type of visa I needed to apply for, which papers to present, and where I had to attend the Mobile Biometric Clinic in order to process my visa.

Now I am happy to say I am ready to get the best education in the world.
