  • My education at the Department of English Language and Literature at International Burch University started as something unexpected and unknown, but it turned out to be one of the most beautiful things in my life.

  • I would like to thank my ELL Department at International Burch University, especially my professors, for providing me with many opportunities to prove that I am capable of anything with people supporting me and believing that I could achieve anything I want. Everybody has a family, but if you ask people studying at Burch, they will say that they have two families, which is true. Being a part of this magnificent Burch family has been a privilege for the past few years, and I am so grateful that I have a chance to call myself a part of it.
