Phuong Anh, one of the scholarship recipients share that: “When I was a second-year student majoring in Chinese language at Nguyen Tat Thanh University, I planned to continue studying for a master’s degree in China. I tried my best to graduate on time and prepare for my scholarship application in September 2022. With my best, I graduated on April 2022. However, China did not reopen the door to foreign students for on-campus study and there was a possibility that I have to study online. Therefore, I temporarily postponed my overseas study and decided to apply for a scholarship in 2023.”

With the proficiency in Chinese language and communication while studying at NTTU, graduates are confident in communicating, understanding lectures or documents written in Chinese

Ms. Hoang Quynh Anh, Head of Chinese Language Department, Faculty of Foreign Languages said: “To be one of the scholarship recipients at the top-ranked universities in China, applicants must satisfy the requirements such as high cumulative GPA, level 5 Chinese Proficiency Test (HSK) or higher, letters of recommendation from two doctoral lecturers. Particularly for top-ranked universities, a professor’s recommendation letter is required with a detailed study plan. In addition, certificates and achievements in outstanding Chinese language competitions are also prioritized”.

He believes that scholarship applicants must determine their personal development pathways from the beginning of third year, to be well-prepared for scholarship application in their final year. In addition, applicants should concentrate on improving GPA or participating in online Chineses courses not only to widen knowledge but also get in touch with future scholarship recommenders potentially working at the University that students can apply for a range of scholarships.
