The opportunity to meet with Van Lang teachers at my school’s career orientation has motivated me to have more confidence and enthusiasm for the university that I have chosen. One more important thing is that most of my high school classmates have the same decision with me. Van Lang is now my second family, where I put all my trust on my career path.

004 hua gia hoaThe reason for choosing Interior Design and deciding to stick to the end of career paths because of my passion of beauty, desire to create beauty and dedication to the beauty of life. In the process of learning, referring a lot about the universities specializing in Fine Arts through my teachers and my friends, Van Lang is considered as the first priority university with prestige and high quality in teaching as well as training methods. The more I listen to my art teachers’ sharing, the more confident and determined I feel to join VL on my study path.

005 huynh cong tuanAs an art enthusiast, with the dream of becoming a vocal teacher, I have always searched for a suitable future environment to suit my career orientation and develop myself as well. Thanks to my teachers and my friends’ advice, I started to get more information about VLU. And everything is becoming more definite until I had a chance to talk to VLU teachers at the annual career orientation. The more I get to know VLU, the more I am certain that VLU is the best place for me and my future career.

After 2 weeks at VLU, I have found that VLU does not make me disappointed. Everything here is very comfortable and disciplined. VLU brings me the best environment for my studying in term of school facilities and the atmosphere. All rooms are well - equipped with modern facilities. And easily you can find some groups dancing or singing together at the public lobby, which is really relaxing and entertaining. Furthermore, studying at VLU helps me grow up a lot. Besides the comfort, everything is in order. I am getting used to being more self – disciplined, such as queuing up, wearing my student card at school, becoming more patient.

 I believe in the connection image of the students of Van Lang ...

010 truong anh thu“I come from Ca Mau - the southernmost land of the Fatherland, where I got very little information about Van Lang. Although the Faculty of Oriental Studies has been established for 2 years, I still believe in its training quality as well as university facilities. Once access to Van Lang online website, you can easily find a lot of sweet sharings from other senior students about their great experience at Van Lang as well as their deep gratitude toward their dedicated teachers. Thanks to those things, I feel more determined to reach my decision.

Honestly, I didn’t realize my dream job and felt very confused to choose a suitable major to focus on, while my favorite subject at high school was Literature. I love Vietnamese and other languages as well. That’s why I chose to study Oriental Studies, which I hope I can learn a new language, new country and new culture. And in the future, I can visit other countries and share my country’ language and culture. In the end I chose to apply for Oriental Studies about Korea.”

Trương Anh Thư – Freshman of Oriental Studies Faculty, the Valedictorian in the national high school exam: 22,50 marks (Group C00)

011 bui thien nhu“I knew the university through the introduction of teachers and the proud sharing of the previous seniors about Van Lang's friendly family with dynamic and creative students. I used to be confused about studying at a public or private university. And finally I chose Accounting major according to my preference when I was in high school. Although I only attended school for 3 weeks, I was really impressed by the school I chose, especially the behavior of Van Lang student community: friendly, gentle and civilized. I haven’t thought that my school has too many clubs for students to freely promote their forte and confidently express themselves. It is extremely exciting!”

Bùi Thiện Như – Freshman of Accounting Faculty, the Valedictorian according to high school record: 27,60 marks (Group A00)

004 nguyen thi hong duyen“At first, I still wondered which university to choose because many people introduced different schools and each with its own advantages. Every day, I often searched the fanpage of universities for reference, and decided to stop searching after hearing about "Van Lang" through the sharing of Van Lang seniors. The way they talked about their school made me feel like being a Van Lang member and feel warm as my home! Since then, Van Lang has become my crush. And I decided to choose Van Lang with the hope that I would have a wonderful student’s life in this university.”

 I believed in my first impression…

013 hong huyen tran“Honestly, I could feel the enthusiasm of this university just through my conversations with its wonderful consultant team, even though I hadn’t have a chance to visit this university before. They were always friendly and patient to answer all my questions. On my first day at Campus 2, I were really impressed by everyone’s enthusiasm, from the security guards to all university volunteers. Futhermore, the welcome programs of my university and my Faculty were so impressive. The teachers I have studied all patiently listen to and answer students' questions, which makes me feel more confident in teaching methodology here.

Many parents often prefer to send their children to public schools because of the quality and prestige which is supposed to be much more than the private schools. For my part, I really feel lucky when my parents always support and respect my decision. How many people has come to Van Lang to study and then become successful in their career and life. In my opinion, I think: The most important thing depends on your own will to study. And I believe Van Lang is an ideal environment for me to promote my own learning motivation.”

014 vo tran duy long“If someone asks me why I chose Van Lang, I will immediately respond that Van Lang is the place I can feel like as my second home. Joining the event of enrollment consultation, I feel very welcomed with enthusiastic guidance from consultant team. The name “Van Lang” nowadays has been more and more popular . I feel proud of myself to become a member of Van Lang family.

My father died when I was at grade 8. At that time, my family had to suffer our terrible crisis. My mother was so depressed that I couldn’t see her happy face before. My eldest brother had to bear the burden of supporting the whole family. I have grown up in the love of my Mom. I understand my eldest brother’s hardship. That always pushes me to study hard to find a good job and share my brother’s burden in the future. One of my pressures at that time was to choose a proper university where I could have the best environment to study my favorite major, Hospitality Management. Finally, I decided to choose Van Lang which is famous for Tourism and Hospitality Management. I hope that I will bring the cozy and intimate atmosphere to all my restaurant customers someday.”

“I had searched a lot about several universities which were specialized in Tourism training. I had asked several seniors from these universities. By chance, I got to know a senior of Business and Commerce Faculty at Van Lang and she shared that Van Lang was actually our home and all Van Lang students were so friendly and outgoing. I were really touched by her sharing and that led to my decision to register Van Lang university for my first choice.

“In an afternoon of the early July, after finishing the gifted drawing day at Ho Chi Minh City University of Architecture, I and a senior went to Campus 3 of Van Lang University which we had searched on the internet. Unfortunately, it was quite late when we arrived there; and the guard said that we could come back tomorrow morning. At that time, a lecturer came and talked to us after hearing our talk with the guard. Then he smiled and told the guard that those would be our future students and why he didn’t help them to know more about our university. I felt so impressed by his attitude and behavior on that day. That made me believe that Van Lang will be definitely a wonderful place for my study and my career pursuit.”
