Rabiul advises students to frequently check the website of Ministry of Education and Home Ministry, who advertise foreign scholarships for Bangladeshi students. As there are fewer applicants for these scholarships, there is better chance for receiving them. Through these websites, Rabiul had earlier received offer letters for (a) Work and Holiday visa in Australia and (b) Chinese Govt. scholarship for MS.
