“It felt great to be back at school again”
I am a Syrian student.
I completed my secondary certificate in 2009 and then completed my diploma in tourism in 2011. After receiving my diploma, I wanted to complete my higher education at a university but could not do so due to the crisis in Syria. Therefore, I decided to travel to Jordan in 2012 where I worked at a factory in Amman. Nonetheless, my desire to complete my higher education lingered in my head. In 2016, I heard through friends about the European Union’s scholarship offered to Syrian students. My curiosity took the best of me so I began looking for the scholarship and learned how to apply for it at Luminus Technical University College (LTUC). The college interviewed me and I was luckily accepted for the scholarship. It felt great to be back at school again. I am now finishing my studies at Luminus Technical University College (LTUC) and my dream of attaining a Bachelor Degree is very close.
I hope I do not stop studying and continue with my higher education in the near future. Eventually, I plan to complete a Master’s Degree and find a suitable job.
