British Embassy promotes UK study

The British Embassy in Phnom Penh this week begins a campaign to promote UK education in Cambodia with a higher education roadshow The UK Study Fair 2019, which is part of its Education is GREAT campaign.

The UK Study Fair 2019 features student recruitment officers from 20 British universities and colleges. They are to offer information on their institutions and the variety of courses.

In addition, they will also be available to answer questions from students and parents, a press release said.

The roadshow will be organised at different schools in Phnom Penh before The UK Study Fair 2019 at Aeon Mall 1 Daylight Plaza event is held on Wednesday afternoon. It is free and open to the public.

Alumni of the Chevening Scholarship programme will guide those wishing to apply for a UK government-funded scholarship.

“Study in the UK means access to a world-class education at world-renowned institutions. Three of the world’s top 10 universities are in the UK."

“We are ranked second in the world for science and research, and 54 per cent of that output is world leading. Studying in the UK also means enhancing your career opportunities."

“Global surveys consistently show that UK degrees are highly valued worldwide. The UK is one of the top five countries globally for industry-university collaboration."

“This increases access to work placements and internships that guarantee graduates a competitive advantage in the job market,” British Ambassador Tina Redshaw said.

The embassy said that the Education is GREAT campaign would also provide students and their parents with valuable information on applying for a course and the necessary visas, financing studies and the possibilities of working in the UK for students who have completed their studies.

The British Embassy said it was a committed supporter of STEM – science, technology, engineering and mathematics – education in Cambodia. And it would participate in the annual Cambodia Science and Engineering Festival from 21 to 23 February at Phnom Penh’s Olympic Stadium.

The embassy is to feature a number of organisations that are implementing vocational training initiatives in Cambodia.

Chea Sang, a Chevening Scholarship holder who graduated from the University of Bradford in 2016 majoring in Peace, Conflict, and Development said: “The programme gives the opportunity for Cambodian students to study in the UK and be exposed to different cultures."

“We learned a lot from other studies in addition to our major subject. The programme provided us complete support for accommodation, school fees and other expenses.”
