Of course. I am a recent graduate from Al-Isra University in architecture engineering and I would like to complete my education by enrolling in a master's degree so I have to get a high band in the IELTS test to do that.

Absolutely. I definitely want to study in the U.K. Actually, I feel lucky for having traveled to U.K. a couple of times. I hung out in London for a few days where a visited museums and walked around the Thames river. It is an astonishing city.

I would like to study in the uk if I have a chance to do, especially in Oxford and cambridge. What I meant by this is all the books I have read to learn english since I was young are coming from these two countries which are very famous in non-english speaking country. I am familiar with these countries, so I would like to come and learn there because they are like educational cities which teach english learners an english thankfully and benevolently.
