The Department of English and Humanities (DEH) at the University of Liberal Arts Bangladesh (ULAB) held a session called "So, What's Next" on April 25, 2024. The workshop was developed for students enrolled in ENG 498, ENG 499, and ENG 413 to walk them through the goals and procedures of higher education and career opportunities. Facilitated by Ms. Arifa Ghani Rahman, Associate Professor and Head of the Department, and Nadia Rahman, Assistant Professor, DEH, the session discussed postgraduate programs abroad as well as what ULAB has to offer in the MA in English program.

Ms. Arifa Rahman opened the workshop by inspiring the students to continue further studies, and in this regard, she enumerated the prerequisites for graduate school applications. Applying abroad necessitates the preparation of several documents, including background research, a list of desired universities, transcripts, certificates, recommendation letters, funds, proficiency tests, updated CVs, SOPs, and other essays, passports, and visa applications, which can take up to a year. She recommended that anyone interested in applying to graduate schools abroad begin the process as soon as possible to secure enrollment in the 2025 session and by this time arrange the necessary elements.

Ms. Nadia Rahman took the lead in the second half and talked about the opportunities that ULAB provides for the students. She also gave details on ULAB's graduate programs and insights on why to choose ULAB. She shared the success stories of the previous students and discussed available offers for ULAB alumni and the female students. She stressed that students should utilize the time after graduation and instantly get admitted to any of the postgraduate disciplines, whether or not they are interested in studying overseas. Furthermore, she emphasized on how further education is going to enhance the opportunities and contribute to their future careers.

Both facilitators concluded the session with an interactive question-answer session and took some pictures as memories.
