To begin the interview, candidates made a self-introduction and demonstrated their prominent abilities, they then answered pertinent questions posed in English and Vietnamese, such as:

  • What is your orientation after finishing the program?
  • What makes you deserving of this scholarship?
  • What will you share with UEF students as part of the program?
  • Why do you wish to be considered for the scholarship?



These applicants all have excelled in both academics and extracurricular activities at their respective faculties or at the University.


Because each candidate was aware of the fantastic prospects provided by this scholarship, they did their best to present themselves with confidence, English competence, and sincerity. This is not an ordinary interview to pick the representative of UEF to attend the international program, but an opportunity for students to identify their shortcomings through the Committee’s feedback. Regardless of the outcome, the interview prepared each UEFer with new experiences on their journey ahead.
