British University Vietnam Horizon Fund Scholarship

Applications for this bursary are now closed.


Visit Vietnam in 2020

Have you ever wanted to travel the world and visit the amazing and beautiful country Vietnam? In May 2020 this could become a reality. Thanks to generous donations to the Horizon Fund and through collaboration with our long-term partner British University Vietnam (BUV), we have a once in a lifetime opportunity for a 2-week stay to visit, learn and explore this spectacular part of south-east Asia.

While in Vietnam you will meet students studying the same Staffordshire University course as you, visit stunning landscapes, and immerse yourself in the culture and language whilst tasting fabulous Vietnamese cuisine.

This scholarship will cover up to £1100 towards the cost of the trip to our partner British University Vietnam during the spring of 2020. The funds awarded will be used towards the flight to Hanoi, Vietnam and will cover the cost of accommodation for 2 weeks whilst in Vietnam. 

The trip will be organised by Staffordshire University. There is no cash alternative available.
