Meet our scholars

“The Australia Awards Scholarship has enabled me to meet interesting people, inspiring scientists and educators, particularly in the biomedical fields. I hope to apply my expertise to the general population in order to improve the community’s health.”

"I’ve discussed topics with famous people during our guest speaker sessions, and I am learning new environmental and conservation concepts from them. The class is not just a class; it's a real meeting for environmentalists to discuss current issues in the environment field."

"The course will definitely help me to provide better advice and services when I come back to work in Vietnam. Besides my study, I take part in numerous social activities held by the Student Union and go travelling in my free time."
