The International Education Institute allows me the freedom to explore what suitable for high school and international students, and helps me familiarize myself with different activities in the work environment.”

The trainee said: “My mentor is Ms. Lan, a dedicated person. She regularly checks on my handling of tasks for timely assistance.

Valuable lessons at Van Lang University

When writing a report on her internship, she realized many interesting things. “I have never done an internship abroad before, so this is a good opportunity to learn. I like the connection in everyone's work and feel really happy to be intern at Van Lang University. However, there are also some regrets because many things cannot be completed at this time, such as being present in Van Lang and working directly with the International Education Institute. However, I still feel really connected to everyone and satisfied with this internship. I have made new friends who work well together, broaden my knowledge and understand more about famous cultural sites as well as the language of Vietnam. Honestly, I was surprised because I learn many things in a short time.”
