As part of the 2022 BUV Scholarship fund, the MOU Scholarship is developed by BUV to encourage senior students of the university’s partner high schools to seize opportunities for learning and access the excellent education of the United Kingdom (UK) right here in Vietnam.
To assist students with their applications, BUV will hold “UK Style Personal Statement” events in various high schools to exchange and share experiences with students regarding the application, resume preparation, and strategies to make an outstanding personal statement.

The MOU Scholarship ranges in value from 30% to 75% of the tuition fee and is applied to either of the 10 majors in BUV with degrees granted by Staffordshire University (UK) or BUV, including:

The Scholarship Panel will select brilliant applicants for interviews based on criteria of good academic performance, experience in participating in voluntary activities and community contributions, having in mind a suitable major, leadership skills, and their ability to contribute to the development of university Apart from the mentioned criteria, students also need a reference letter from their high school when they apply for the scholarship.
In addition to financial support, BUV students can access updated curricula and knowledge that are entirely taught by international lecturers in a truly UK education environment facilitated by modern educational technologies, as well as join a community of friendly, open-minded, and dynamic students. Furthermore, students will receive considerable assistance in their learning, mental support, and internship opportunities from BUV.
On the MOU Scholarship and his time studying at BUV, Luu Tien Anh, an alumnus of Nguyen Tat Thanh high school as well as the champion of the MOU Scholarship, shared: “The international environment at BUV exceeded my expectations: “All classes are taught by international lecturers and in English, making me feel like I’m studying abroad! Classes and practices are designed to encourage students to develop their ability to work independently, develop their problem-solving skills, and self-motivation skills. Words fail to describe my love for BUV.”
BUV scholarship fund was established to provide Vietnamese students with opportunities to participate in UK undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in an international education environment right here in Vietnam. In 2021, the scholarship fund has been raised to VND 53 billion, including valuable scholarships such as the British Ambassador’s Scholarship (100% of tuition fees), Lion’s Heart Scholarship for disadvantaged students, President’s Scholarship (75% of tuition fees), Dean’s Scholarship (50% of tuition fee), and especially, the MOU Scholarship for all-around students from partner high schools.
