WHAT DO OUR STUDENTS SAY?

International Office
ORAN STONE PHILPOTTS-WARDLE 🇬🇧

“BUV has been a great experience. I’d say it’s been really welcoming. It’s been really nice to meet all students here as well and hear their thoughts and opinion and stuff as well, and mixing with the different culture as well. Seeing how people live and what they are doing at their best time as well actually and their thoughts on outside of the world as well actually. And the lecturers have been really good, really knowledgeable as well, and really passionate on their subjects actually.

The SU Global Office has been back and forth constantly trying to arrange part of the trips, funding, making sure we have people in place to make sure we get places. The BUV section’s been outstanding, especially Linh and Hien as well”.

BETHANY ROSE FOX 🇬🇧

“I loved being at British University Vietnam. I looked at facilities, so there’s a lot here that we don’t have, so you’ve got like a Nap Room and a lot of places that you can socialise between different people. The campus’s really big, and I love the fact that you’ve got quite a lot of environmental aspects in the campus as well”.

International Office
MEGAN LOUISE GUEST 🇬🇧

The BUV has been absolutely amazing. I’ve got two-week experience. The staff, especially Chris and Lylia, have give us such an amazing opportunity going from the North of Vietnam down to the South and exploring the different areas, see the different agricultural and ecological methods that they use here in Vietnam.

WHAT DO OUR STUDENTS SAY?

ALEXANDRU VESELIN GLIGU 🇬🇧

“The most important we got is the buddy we have so far. Obviously we have dinner before so we have information before, we know exactly what to expect and what we embark on but when we reached here I was really impressed by the system and the buddy and how much time they spend with us and I was so stressed when I am getting close to my deadline and I was impressed that they have actually time to spend with us when due deadline… so I was impressed with the organization and obviously people in charge and how everything was perfectly organized.

It has been great experience so far. I am really impressed with everything that happened. We have some workshops about tourism, about Vietnam as well. I was really impressed by that and the speaker”

DALISAY GAGUI ATASHA BYNA 🇵🇭

“Being a CGDP student requires appropriate hardware to work on our assignments, and as I did not have such equipment at home, I had to go to campus to do them. This proved difficult during the pandemic where we all had to study online. Thankfully, BUV lent me a PC from the computer lab–a full set, including headphones and all, until I was done with my work. Not only that, throughout my time at BUV, any questions that I may have were kindly answered by the staff. I’m extremely grateful for their support, patience, and understanding”.

DENISOVICH EVGENIYA 🇷🇺

“I was adapted to Vietnamese environment long time before I entered BUV, but I am very thankful to the university for introducing me to many of my Vietnamese peers with whom I became good friends.

 

I am also very delighted with BUV’s faculty. Some lecturers have expressed themselves towards me not only as teaching professionals, but as supportive friends who help me to adapt to the new teaching environment”.
