The exciting life sciences curriculum, global experiential learning opportunities and the possibilities of being able to learn outside the classroom were what attracted me to study at the Vietnam National University – International School (VNU-IS).
As the flagship university of a multi-racial and multi-cultural country like Vietnam, VNU-IS is unique in that we have a diverse student population on campus. With students and faculty members coming from multiple countries, there are a lot of opportunities for students to share ideas and interact with professors and students from different cultures.
For me, apart from the diversity of viewpoints and ideas, the dynamism in conducting research at the VNU Faculty of Science and Technology has enabled me to appreciate science from different standpoints. Most importantly, I’ve always wanted to be at the forefront of science and to pursue a transformative education. At VNU-IS, I get to enjoy the best of both worlds.
Even as an undergraduate student, I have many opportunities to interact with professors and research fellows from all over the globe. For example, I am currently working with multiple professors and my two research topics are Building a security system to prevent denial of service attacks on Internet of Things (IoT) and Using Artificial Intelligence for Automated Cars. I am working alongside researchers from habile and versatile research faculties of VNU. What amazes me is the wealth of experience these faculties have to offer in relation to the different models of stroke and their application.
At VNU-IS, students are strongly encouraged to venture overseas – for internships, student exchange or community work. Many of my undergraduate peers have a significant study-abroad experience. I am also planning to ride on such experience, maybe an exchange opportunity at some world’s best college and I am so sure it is going to be a very enriching experience.
