What do you enjoy most about studying at Taylors College in the USFP? I was a student from Le Hong Phong High School, HCMC, Vietnam and have always dreamed of studying abroad not only to broaden my knowledge but also to be exposed to different and innovative methods of learning. Through research, I discovered that Australia promotes creative and independent thinking and is reputable for its world-class education. I enjoy everything about Taylors College!

Why did you decide to take up the USFP? USFP offers me the best pathway to a prestigious university – The University of Sydney. It also provides me with many other skills such as self-study through research tasks and practical experiments in class, and the chance to make friends from all over the world!

During my time in USFP, I have received the Excellence Award for Social Sciences, and Participation Awards for Social Science, English and Taylors Action Club. I am one of the lucky ones to be accepted into the International Student Leadership and Ambassador Program with the City of Sydney, which aims to increase and improve the engagement between the City of Sydney and international students along with building the capacity of international students like myself, to deliver community events that engages the greater community. Through this program, I am able to learn new skills and better my knowledge through their courses such as Australian Government, Leadership and Event Management. What do you like about Sydney? Sydney is a wonderful city with modern facilities combined with beautiful sceneries within the city centre. It is the most active and multicultural city I have ever seen.
