Road to PhD

Alhamdulillah, after series of checking on the application status, I finally am accepted to be a PhD student in Universiti Pendidikan Sultan Idris (UPSI), my alma mater where I used to pursue my postgrad years as a Master student. This time around I will officially register on September 6, 2017 for PhD in Biology programme. Now I will spend approximately 3 years of my life more in Bumi Suloh Budiman. Couldn't wait for it!

Frankly speaking, I wish to further my study abroad. Initially my dream was to further my study at University of Northern Colorado in PhD of Biological Education but it seemed quite impossible as I am racing with my time. It is the matter between these two, to hold on and wait for future overseas chances or finish this up as quickly as possible. So, I decided to put the first thought aside and pursue with the second one. Now, it does not matter where I study, as long as I have the patience and perseverance to complete this winding journey full of obstacles and hindrance. 

But still, I am proud to be homegrown. With the advancement of technology and globalised sources of information, it seems like there are no big difference between studying locally and abroad as we still can access to the same knowledge and information. Thanks to the internet. So those who do not have the opportunity to further your study abroad, be proud that we are HOMEGROWN. PhD life, here I come. ͰM
