Why did you choose Asian studies?
I had an intense interest on contemporary Asian politics and regional development and I knew that this program will not only give me the opportunity to get in depth knowledge on Asia, but also it will give me the chance to meet some talented young Asians and people from other parts of the world who also share common interest like me.
When did you graduate from the Masters Programme in Asian Studies?
in 2007-2009, and I got the degree in 2010
What are you doing today?
I am developing a Non Government Organization (NGO) in Bangladesh which is called PLANET (Program for Livelihood Adaptation in Naturally Endangered Territories). I am the co-founder and the Director of Operation of PLANET.
What was it like being a student in Lund? Any recommendations for future students?
Lund is a beautiful city located in the south of Sweden and the culture that Lund University has developed over the years is outstanding. You will never feel secluded from the multicultural environment of Lund. The most challenging part of Lund is obviously 'winter and darkness'. However, this obstruction will never derogate your enjoyment of living and studying in Lund. The world class teaching and the state-of-art academic facilities will encourage you to devote in studying and research at Lund University. I will highly recommend students from different parts of the world to choose Lund and particularly, the Centre for east and south east Asian studies for their higher study destination.
