Choosing a major is one of the most important steps in students’ path to their future careers. In order to make the right decision, they need to absorb enough news in advance. To support them in the decision-making process, PEPY conducts exposure visits for our Scholarship students. In January, students went to Regional Polytechnic Institute Techo Sen Siem Reap, Vanda Institute of Account, University of South East Asia and Paññāsāstra University of Cambodia (PUC). Students got to explore schools’ facilities and ask questions about the courses they are interested in, the job opportunities they might have after receiving different degrees, and key techniques for succeeding at their coursework.
Roeut Chanra- “All the students who were joined the visiting understands the school’s value. Myself, I’m really interested in studying at University of South East-Asia because I think the school is very nice and the teachers seem to have very good experience in teaching. I have been interested in that university since I was in the study tour trip organized by Dream Project in Kralanh High School. I love the major tourism and hospitality because Siem Reap province is an interesting place for tourism. I want to be a good tour guide.”
Phouy Pha- “For myself, I’m interested in learning English at Paññāsāstra University because I want to be an English Teacher. I really love teaching and sharing with other people. Before making this decision, I asked other people who are learning English and I asked myself how I want to see my life in the future. During studying, I have to try hard for practicing English by doing research, reading news, and engaging in a lot of English conversation.”
Sieng Chanry- “I was very happy when I went to visit different universities and vocational training schools in Siem Reap because before I make a decision, I want to be clear about available subjects for learning. I’m interested in learning Accounting at Vanda Institute because the school focuses on providing practical experiences. The teachers also have experience abroad. I want to be an accountant because I like math.
We truly appreciate all the institutions for hosting our students and taking the time to speak with them. These visits are an essential step in getting the students to think clearly and practically about their futures and how to succeed. Now that PEPY Scholarship students have had the time to adjust to city life and have been at the Learning Center gaining core skills for around 3 months, they are now excited to start attending their classes – in many ways, this is where the paths to their dreams begin!
