  1. Sir/Madam

    I am an inhabitant of Bangladesh. I have successfully completed my secondary, higher secondary school certificate courses and University level. Now I am studying in master’s level. The name of my university is Shahjalal University of Science &Technology, Sylhet-3114, Bangladesh. Now I am in M.S.S 1st year 2nd semester at Social Work discipline. I have already completed B.S.S (Hon’s) 4 years graduation course from 160 credits and CGPA is 3.42 out of 4.00. My class position was 1st at that time.
    But more recently I am interested to engage myself to any foreign institution about to enrich my educational qualification with the programmed of masters or equivalent regarding this subject (Social Work/ Social Welfare).

    I am from Bangladesh which is situated in least develop country so it is not possible me to continue my study with high academic cost. So if there any opportunity for me to admit in any top most institution with 100% Scholarship both (Academic & Accommodation completely) then it will be possible for me to analysis my dream for the future trend of my Study. If it is possible, please mail me or telephonic contact about this process. I hope that you will give me the positive responses.

    You’re faithfully
