“A reason why we have to study in the US is that the US has highly prestigious and many universities are top world universities. Quality and flexibility of the faculties and programs at US universities are incredible, and we can carry out research supported by sophisticated technology, priceless life experiences, and excellent network. Thus, graduating from a US university will easily get a job,” presented Iqbal.
