UC Makes Promotional Visits to Local High Schools

June 3-8, 2013: Members of the staff and management team of the University of Cambodia, led by Dr. Y Ratana visited a number of High Schools around Phnom Penh over the period June 3-8, 2013. The aim was to disseminate
information and promote awareness of UC: its various programs (including the Centre for English Studies and the new Khmer Track), its facilities and other resources such as scholarships, together with an understanding of various core policies. Presentations were made through using slides, where possible; they were supplemented by oral explanations with brochures and other printed material.

“The students will surely receive good benefits and gain more knowledge,” Dr. Y Ratana said, adding that it will help students to make good decisions of what they want and what they need to do, and where, after they graduate from high school. He pointed out to students that “It’s absolutely up to you all and on your own free will to opt for a particular school on where you want to further your higher education.”

So why UC? Dr. Y noted that it is very important that a university provides the best quality education for students including good facilities, resources, the surrounding environment and carefully-selected professors who not only are competent in what they teach, but have experience in dealing with students: understanding their needs, difficulties and hardships and other support... UC strives to meet all these requirements and demands: thus “UC professors must be able to demonstrate and share their real life experiences about what they’ve been through and how they successfully achieved their goals. UC has also been invited those graduates who have become well-established in their lives with good paying jobs to come and share their knowledge, experience, and skills in the classroom.”

He went on saying that “UC also provides other accessible tools, materials, resources, and facilities such as computers labs; two huge libraries (hard and e-library), … to help students with their research work and other assignments; a
Multi-Media Language Lab to practice listening, speaking, writing, and grammar; and more”. UC is well-prepared for students in pursuit of academic excellence, with guidance to achieve their goals. “That’s why UC provides many scholarships from the generous donors such as Dr. Haruhisa Handa, Dr. Rikhi Thakral, and others each year to high-school graduate students who passed exams in both English and General Knowledge.”

UC is very pleased with what was achieved and would like to thank the schools involved: their students were very enthusiastic and interested, as evidenced by the questions asked and their reactions to the answers given.
