Everyone at UCP, from your classmates to your lecturers, is there to help you achieve your goals. Every day I walk into campus, I am energized by this enthusiasm for the field, and it gives me the courage to pursue a career in politics. Along theoretical studies, the department motivate us for research and practical work as well. Therefore, we landed into the field for internship with the help of our instructors. The period of internship helped me to connect with different people, it also benefited me to expends my network and boost my social skills, to increase my self-confidence. It will be helpful for my job in future. My time at UCP is nearly up, I’m grateful for the decision I made to join UCP, and I know it will always be my home.

In addition to this, the infrastructure is one of its kind and my personal favourite is its library because of its calm environment which helps in academic activities. I’m currently enrolled in International Relations program and the students that I found here are influential and we engage in a healthy environment with time to time debates helping us proceed. The faculty I have been introduced to is quite brilliant considering every one of them is more than qualified to provide us guidance which will be assisting us in our professional lives
