British University Vietnam launches BUV Lion’s Heart Scholarship worth over VND 1 billion
Aug 18, 2020
With the commitment to contribute to the development of Education of Vietnam by giving students the opportunity to study UK undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in an international learning environment in Vietnam, in the school year of 2020 – 2021, British University Vietnam has officially launched Lion’s Heart Scholarship specifically for disadvantaged students who always make great effort to overcome the difficulties in life.
The Lion’s Heart Scholarship programme is a full scholarship that covers the tuition fees for Pathway programmes, an undergraduate course at the British University Vietnam, English Preparation course, traveling cost for attending the scholarship interview round for students who are not in Hanoi and Hung Yen (if needed) and living costs for the scholar.
A key feature of the programme is to contribute to the Education of Vietnam’s development through providing the world-class higher education opportunities offered at the first British owned university in Vietnam to disadvantaged students. The candidates are selected based on their disadvantaged background including their need for financial support, physical or mental disability along with a combination of previous academic performance, relevant experience of community work and the potential to become leaders in the public sector, business, and academia. For the school year 2020 – 2021, BUV will grant 1 Lion’s Heart Scholarship a value of up to over VND 1 billion.
The scholarship programme applies to the following courses, which are entirely taught at BUV and awarded by Staffordshire University: BSc (Hons) International Business Management, BSc (Hons) Computer Science: Cyber Security/Cloud, Networks and Security, BA (Hons) Marketing Management, BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance, BA (Hons) Finance and Economics, BA (Hons) Tourism Management, BA (Hons) Events Management, BA (Hons) Contemporary Creative Practice: Graphic Design/ Illustration/ Photography, BA (Hons) Computer Games Design and Programming, BA (Hons) International Hospitality Management.
Candidates will be evaluated and selected for the round based on their financial situation, academic results, community volunteer participation, major choice, leadership potential, and ability to contribute to the development of BUV. Additionally, students need to supplement a certificate or a record confirming candidates’ circumstances or health status issued by the authorities.
Professor Dr. Raymond Gordon – President of British University Vietnam (BUV) – shared: “British University Vietnam (BUV) understands that not all young people, despite their capability to do so, are in the position to study an international higher education degree. For these young people, due to circumstances out of their control, such an opportunity remains nothing more than an “education dream”.
The objective of Lion’s Heart scholarship programme reflects BUV’s mission by seeking to enrich the lives of talented young Vietnamese students who are circumstantially disadvantaged and not in the position to pursue international higher degree studies. More to the point, the program seeks to turn the “education dream” for these students into a reality and thereby, give them the opportunity to fulfil their potential and enrich life for themselves, their loved ones, and the people of Vietnam.”
In addition to the scholarship coverage of tuition fees for the English Programme, Foundation Programme and Bachelor degree, living expenses, an iPad and travel costs for attending the scholarship interview (if any), the Lion’s Heart scholar will receive the same benefits as other students of BUV do, such as: Students will study at BUV’s new campus, with state-of-the-art teaching and learning facilities and an iconic design, which is indicative of 4IR and is being recognized as one of the best educational environments in Asia where all curriculums are taught in English with 100% international faculty. The undergraduate programme combines 3 months study with 3 months internship, together with personal development programmes and intensive skills training, giving BUV students the opportunities of doing internships right from the first year at prestigious domestic and international corporations, as well as equip themselves with knowledge, skills and working experience before graduation.
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 young and talented Vietnamese students access to high-quality British degree programs and world-class education facilities such as those at its international campus in Hung Yen, Vietnam. BUV also seeks to produce graduates that will become Vietnam’s next generation of discoverers, explorers, and creative thinkers who, as the world enters a new era (4IR) of work and life, are capable of creating new opportunities for themselves, their families and others.
