Our Outstanding alumni stories

Vu Tra My

International Business Management, Staffordshire University – Class of 2016

 My graduated from BUV with First-Class Honours in her International Business Management bachelor’s degree. My is now pursuing Master’s degree in Media & Communications at City, University of London, one of the top 5 universities in the UK. My studied A Levels in the UK, following a scholarship at a boarding school. She then found the opportunity to study her undergraduate degree in a British education environment right here in Vietnam – BUV. My realised that she can still get world-class qualifications while being near to family and friends. That’s why she chose British University Vietnam.  

During her study, My achieved Merit Certificates for Academic Excellence for having the top grades in her class. During her third year, My was awarded a free Study Trip to the UK for 18 days for having the highest grades in the whole university.

My shared that at BUV, she didn’t just learn facts and figures, but gained so much more in other vital skills. My has developed her ability in independent study, research, analysis, evaluation, leadership, teamwork, presentation, and communication.

Her study at BUV has helped her to conquer many challenges during her internships, and helped her to improve her academic and professional English. My recently obtained an IELTS score of 8.5 – 9.0.

My’s message to BUV students is as follows: “I believe that hard work always pays off. If you think you've worked hard and it still goes nowhere, it only means you haven't put enough time, effort and dedication to it.”

Huy’s message for BUV students is the following:

“You have to find the method that works for you, be it working, studying or anything. While it is true that the experiences and methods other people share with you are valuable, those things were drawn from their own lives and forged from their unique perspectives. It might work for them, but might not be as effective for you. So take what you can from the advice of parents, teachers, friends, but don't blindly follow them. After all, you will eventually have to know yourself best”
