What do our students say?

Bachelor in International Hospitality Management
Nguyen Tran Mai Anh
1810 International Hospitality Management Cohort

I must say that I love my lecturers here, those who are very supportive, major-experienced and professional. They are willing to write several recommendation letters, spend time endorsing me on LinkedIn, or recommend me for certain opportunities. Their prompt support does contribute a lot to my career path. They not only teach me the theory, but they also share their working experience, which helps me a lot when I do an internship. Another thing that makes me fall in love with BUV is the student experience department, the SE team. This department does what its name says: enhancing the student experience. The SE team not only assists the students during the application and interview process for an internship, but also shows huge support whenever BUV students want to start a new project or an event.
