Nguyen Duc Thinh, the First Prize 2018/19 winner of Vietnam, currently studying Applied Arts in Journalism at the University of Prince Edward Island, shares, “I originally did not intend to apply for any scholarship for my study in Canada as I always thought of myself as an ordinary person with no particular outstanding academic achievement. A scholarship would be something out of my reach. On the day I registered for the IELTS test at British Council Hanoi's office, I was told by the staff person about IELTS Prize, which really intrigued me. That is why coming home I immediately went to the official website of IELTS Prize to read all about it. What I really love about this scholarship is that compared to some foreign government scholarships I have heard of, IELTS Prize does not really have complicated eligibility requirements, which is perfect for me. The selection process is also really straightforward, with clear instruction given through each email.”
