Consequently, it will be a horrible mistake not to thank UB for this gesture.

However, this good intentioned gesture has turned into a nightmare as a result of inept UB lecturers and outrageous academic regulations. According to the UB’s school of graduate studies regulations, a Masters’ degree pursued on part time basis should be completed within 6 semesters (3 academic years).
