    Default HELLO HELLO HELLO from sunny Karachi

    Hi all ...

    I am from Karachi and I am excited to join the MOVE TO NEW ZEALAND forum. I have just returned from Wales after finishing my MSc and now I am in process for applying to Universities in NZ for a PhD and have had great response and encouragement to apply from the professors.... I know you must be thinking .. WHAT A NERD... but as far as I am concerned, knowledge has no end.

    Anyway.. looking forward to talk to you guys and I have a million questions... see you in other threads.

    Chao!!

    Hi Riazu and welcome.

    What part of Wales did you study in? There are a few of us on here who are from South Wales. Perhaps you were in Cardiff university?

    Good luck with your efforts to get to NZ. Hope it goes well for you.

    I didn't go the uni route, I only went to technical college and lived near Newport in Gwent, the next county to Glamorgan where Cardiff is.

    I must say, your English is excellent .

    well thanks for the compliment.. I have studied all my life in English and then living in the UK has contributed immensely to my english language skills...

    Anyway, have you already moved to New Zealand, I have a lot of questions about student life there. I am currently apply to Auckland and Canterbury.

    No, I'm not in NZ yet unfortunately, although I have visited a couple of times and am due to visit again this month.

    Crazy Saturday's in St. Mary Street - that sounds about right

    I'm from Cardiff - in fact I returned on Wednesday from a 6 week holiday there. We're living in NZ now but I'm proud to be Welsh and Cardiff certainly has a lot going for it. We had a lovely time, although I must admit to avoiding St. Mary Street in the evenings

    Welcome to the forum anyway
