How to study well in the UK

How to study well in the United Kingdom

The UK is the third most popular destination among Vietnamese students who want to study abroad. As stated by the Ministry of Education and Training, the UK’s university education and higher education attracts Vietnamese students the most. 

There are currently about 12,000 Vietnamese people studying in the UK. At the Vietnam UK higher education collaboration forum, Deputy Minister Nguyen Van Phuc said: the Chevening Scholarships launched by the UK’s government have helped many Vietnamese students successfully study abroad in the UK on a master’s degree course. Many of them have graduated from British universities and are contributing to the development of our country.
