    The mission of the University of Kansas is to lift students and society by educating leaders, building healthy communities, and making discoveries that change the world. We advance this mission every day across KU's five campuses. After securing a GPA of 8, I had applied through an online application form for $85.

    Course Curriculum :

    The Biostatistics M.S. and Ph.D. programs were created to help meet the ever-increasing demand for biostatisticians to take leadership roles in careers as researchers and educators in academia, government, and industry. Faculty members are active researchers collaborating and consulting in research projects and initiatives at the Medical Center, in addition to pursuing their own research agendas and participating in curricular instruction.

    They embrace the role as the state’s flagship university and a premier research institution, serving the state, nation, and world. They celebrate the energy and compassion that infuse the Jayhawk spirit. My GPA was around 7, and I was required to submit a common application form. The application fee was $85.

    Course Curriculum :

    The LL.M. in American Legal Studies provides students who already hold a law degree with an introduction to the breadth of American law. Students who complete the LL.M. program are ready for the further study of law in the United States, select bar examinations, and the practice of law internationally. Candidates must hold a basic law degree from an accredited foreign college or university or a J.D. from an accredited American law school.

    Affiliate programs on research opportunities abroad were the source through which I gathered information about the college. From the alumni cell of my graduate school, I got to know that the PhD program offered by the college was one of the best in the country, with a high market value and opportunity to work with eminent scholars. Thus, I filled up the application form through common application portal, submitted my high school transcripts, recommendation letters and my personal resume, along with a non refundable deposit of $200.

    Course Curriculum :

    For enhancing my skills in biological and pharmaceutical sciences, I decided to enroll myself in the Doctorate program of Neurosciences in the college. The program emphasized on improving my research capacity, skill implementation ability and knowledge required to perform and communicate the results of the research conducted by me. Our program spanned from the depths of molecular neuroscience to systems neuroscience, thus offering us a major scope of area to specialize on.

    I was in the final year of my MBBS program when I got an internship research facility provided by our college at Kansas University Medical Center. Although there was no fixed stipend for the work, the experiences and the knowledge that I gained in that duration were invaluable and something I could never have put a monetary value on. The faculty members there offered us the opportunity, upon clarification of visa and other eligibility documents, to pursue the Master's program from there. Thus upon passing my MBBS program, when I became a certified doctor eligible for private practice, I decided to fly off to America and pursue a program in Bio-Statistics. I applied through the online application portal standardized by the college officials, the application fee was $85.

    Course Curriculum :

    A statistical analysis of the biological elements in genes and genomes were the basic centrifugal force behind the understanding we developed in our subject. The terminologies associated with Biochemistry, Molecular Theories and Biotechnology formed a core understanding of our curriculum. It helped us demonstrate a broad knowledge and understanding of the statistical theory in health sciences, function as a collaborator on a research team and assume responsibility for the design and implementation of health science investigation.

    There were two reasons why I opted for this college. The first reason being the college faculty, infrastructure, and placement is excellent, and it will definitely help in my career growth. The second reason was that this college is located quite close to my relative's house and never having stayed alone, being in a foreign country would be difficult for me. Thus I chose this college and I am currently staying at my relative's place and this also helped me in cutting down on my accommodation expenses. Also, applying here wasn't hard, I easily applied through their online portal and paid the application fee of $85.

    Course Curriculum :

    My program provides a hands-on learning environment and the curriculum is covering all the important topics to help me tackle any Dietetics & Nutrition based job in any industry. The curriculum is of the highest standards and relevant and up to date with the recent times thus it is helping me to learn a lot of things.
