‘Choosing FPT University is a Courageous Decision’

At a time, when many people are skeptical about non-public universities, agreeing to send their children to FPT University is a must-read for many families, especially when young people have more than one choice these days.

In 2007, Mr. Vo Dang Phat won the second prize in Computer Science and was directly admitted to Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology. Although he arranged everything to prepare for his new journey, he changed his mind then, and convinced his parents to study IT program at FPT University Hanoi. “I want to study in a more competitive environment,” Mr. Phat gave his reason at FPT Information Day held in Can Tho. He is currently working in Tokyo, Japan.

Mr. Vo Quoc Dat, the parent of the alumnus, still remembered the surprise of the family at that time but understood his son, Mr. Dat agreed. “Phat’s aggressiveness is what persuaded me. The new students should choose bachelor programs they are passionate and dream about,” he advised newcomers in the event.

Like Phat, Nguyen Hai Ha (who is working in Singapore) was accepted to a prestigious university but expressed his parents to study at FPT University. Mr. Nguyen Van Toi, the parent of this alumnus, said: “We are very anxious. I go to learn about FPT University by myself from where the university is located; how the building look like; using English language or not; and also ask many friends about their perspectives on the school. Since then, I am just confident to send my son to study there. That is the brave decision, but now I feel our decision is completely right”.

To follow the path of Ha throughout his study and work, Mr. Toi affirms that for FPT students, if they are hard-working and determined to cultivate skills and foreign languages, their income will be no less than those of international schools.

Many alumni have faced the “forest” questions of people around them when making a decision to choose FPT University. That is the case of the FPT alumnus achieved the highest result in the entrance examination of FPT University in course 6, Ms. Nguyen Thi Huong Quynh. Quynh is well known for her dictatorial education, she is a good student at the national level, but she refuses all other invitations from universities to study in FPT University. “At first, I wanted to prove my choice was right but as deep into the learning environment of FPT University, I did not remember the original goal, I learned for my passion instead,” Quynh said.

Quynh evaluated that the curriculum of FPT University was very scientific. The lecturers were so enthusiastic. Therefore, she would feel so sorry if she was not attentive. She supported that there were many clubs to join in, so participating in clubs would help FPT students always get full of energy.

Former student Nguyen Quoc Tuan, now is a technology expert at FPT Software, highly appreciates the environment of FPT University. "The program is close to reality, comprehensive training skills. Especially, the program encourages students to criticize logically. Tuan joined FPT very quickly," he said.

Former student Bui Anh Quang, who is managing development project of Heineken brand, advises new graduates to start investing when they are in school. Quang points out three factors that influence this including curriculum, teaching methods and teaching environment. At FPT University, all courses are geared towards the practical application of the work. The teaching method in FPT is to teach students how to learn by themselves. “FPT environment is very free and self-sufficient, there is always the exchange between the school and students,” he affirmed.

The story of a student is not very excellent, difficult family circumstance that is subject to credit, so Quang determined to change. Finding his passion for marketing from the OJT (On the job training) internship and pursuing; Quang is now a training expert in this field.

FPT University’s Information Day took place in Can Tho on July 8’s afternoon at the Center of Can Tho Employment Service. The program was attended by leaders from FPT, excellent alumni with over 500 new students and parents.
