“My study results increased remarkably just after two academic terms receiving the scholarships”
When I passed the entrance examination to my university, my family and I were in a mix feeling of happiness and worries. My family and I were very happy with my examination results. However, we knew it was the beginning of a long and rough journey in the meantime. We didn’t know how we could manage to pay such an amount of tuition fee and high living cost in Saigon for the coming four years of studying.
In such situation, I had to find part-time jobs as soon as settling down. Although limited time for studying, I did my best to study effectively and to apply for sponsorships. Luckily, I was qualified for a MENLA scholarship when I was at my 3rd year. My study results increased remarkably just after two academic terms receiving the scholarships. Thanks to it, I could spend more time focusing on studying and joining some extra English and soft skill courses.”
