In 2020, Vietnamese students have the opportunity to receive “The British Ambassador’s scholarship”, a full scholarship valued at VND 800 million for students who study at British University Vietnam with a degree awarded by Staffordshire University (United Kingdom).
Founded in 2018, the BUV Scholarship Fund aims to give students the opportunity to study UK undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in an international learning environment in Vietnam. In 2020, BUV is officially raising the scholarship fund to VND 40 billion with hundreds of scholarships. In particular, 2020 is also the first year that BUV will award the ” The British Ambassador’s scholarship ” – a full scholarship valued at VND 800 million.
The British Ambassador’s scholarship covers the tuition fees for Pathway programmes and an undergraduate course at the British University Vietnam, awarded by Staffordshire University, in addition to the travelling costs for attending the scholarship interview round for students who are not in Hanoi and Hung Yen (if needed). Selection criteria include academic results, volunteer/community work experience, personal development goals and plans, among others.
This is a scholarship that BUV is honored to be awarded by His Excellency Gareth Ward, British Ambassador to Vietnam, on its 10-year anniversary ceremony. His Excellency Gareth Ward shared: ” In the past 10 years, the British University Vietnam has become widely recognised as a symbol of success in educational cooperation between the UK and Vietnam. BUV’s ability to deliver high quality British education and an authentic international learning environment in Vietnam makes it an ideal institution to offer the British Ambassador’s Scholarships. I look forward to meeting the next group of scholars”.
British University Vietnam (BUV) is the first and only international university in Vietnam to award direct degrees from the prestigious University of London and Staffordshire University. BUV’s mission is to provide Vietnamese students with authentic British degrees and an international learning environment, to create a generation of young people who are passionate about learning, exploring and creative thinking that will change the world.
