Hello my name is May Thin Khine and I am from Burma .I am currently studying MBBS in ENGLISH in Jinzhou Medical University in CHINA .First of all , I have already completed my first year of study there, To be honest ,China do not provide scholarship for studying MBBS in ENGLISH program .They only provide scholarship for MBBS in Chinese program. As an Islam, I am not going to work and stay in CHINA after graduated. Hence I chose MBBS in ENGLISH programs. The university fees is too expensive that after studying for 1 year ,my parents cannot afford anymore. That is why I need scholarships deeply to continue my study. I found the scholarships application website of Turkey. The reason why I choose Turkey is because they provide scholarships for MBBS students and it is also an Islamic country. As an Islam, I believe that studying in Islamic country make me feel safe and secure. Moreover I have two siblings and I am the eldest and my parents want me to get a good degree in good country and I heard that Turkey is so good in MBBS. Secondly it is not a good idea to stay and study in my country. The reason is because for Islam, according to country situation, it is not easy to get the MBBS degree easily in BURMA since there are some discrimination. Last but not least, I really want to be a good doctor since I was young. Being a medical doctor is really great. Medical doctor know that they get to help people solve their problems every single day and they get to witness humanity at its very best and very worst. I appreciate your consideration. With your assistance, I can continue my schooling in MBBS and become a good doctor and save the patients’ life. Sincerely, May thin Khine
