Hi, my name is Joseph John and I'm from India. I have completed my Bachelor’s degree in Business and Management in India. After finishing my Bachelor's degree I had been working for two different corporate companies for 2 years. While working I decided to study Master’s degree abroad, as that will give me a transcendent experience and exposure. So I started with homework on finding reputable universities around the globe. Then one fine day I got to know about the Silesian University. Eventually, I started digging up more information about the school and the courses. I found it as reliable and trustworthy. Why did I mention reliable and trustworthy? Well, being a 3rd country citizen, it isn’t that easy to find a good business school and it's not only about the school but also about the place where the school resides - it should be safe and welcoming for a 3rd country citizen. For me, Karvina is the best place to live and a very calm town. So, on December 5th, 2018, I landed in the Czech Republic. The faculty was so good at assisting all my needs. The Silesian University provided me with the relevant program which I did in the Bachelor’s degree and also our professors are really good at teaching and friendly in nature. It’s been almost one year in the Czech Republic for me and honestly speaking, I'm having a memorable time here so far, a lot of new friends and experiences.
Last summer I spent 3 months working in Italy under the Erasmus+ internship program and I had a high time there as well. I also got a chance to visit Poland where I delivered my presentation within an international student seminar organized by our university and its Polish partner university. The Silesian University provides a lot of other opportunities such as scholarships. Last semester, I received a merit scholarship based on my fairly good grades. Great, isn't it?
Karvina has given me a surpassing opportunity to work here. Now I'm working as an English teacher for a local high school and also for a primary school, having an amazing experience with my Czech students. Still, it always depends upon us, how we take the time and opportunity prolifically. I suggest my friends who are thinking about coming to Karvina, it’s absolutely the right decision. Do it! The right decision at the right time is the most important. Good luck.
