It’s been over two months since I’ve heard any word regarding about my application to study at NUCB. I was beginning to give up; it was disheartening seeing everyone progressing forward without me. For the past few weeks, I’ve been preparing myself to survive alone in a foreign country. I’ve gone as far as to check the closest green grocers on Google Maps.
To my delight, I received an email early this week from my exchange co-ordinator. There was some technical error and as a result, the we weren’t receiving the replies NUCB were sending to us. To cut to the chase, I have been invited to apply for their student exchange program! In addition, I have been offered a travel scholarship. The application seems like a formality more or less but I’m trying not to get ahead of myself.
The deadline is December 12 but I have to get everything sorted out before December 5. There’s a lot of paper work involved but prospect of learning in a new environment makes it all worth it.
