It is a long road ahead but it is worth it

Student blogs - 14 November 2017
The wise Lao Tzu said that “The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.” That step for me was to decide three years ago that I wanted to go back to school. Why?

Having a study plan is one of the first things that enters our mind when we decide to study, and even more if we do so as International Programmes students.

I am not doing this for the fun of it
