Twining Program, Year of Intake 2013Enrolling in School of Computer Science at The University of Nottingham – Malaysia Campus through IU Twining Program was one of my best decisions. The first two years immersing in an international environment at IU had provided me with a better preparation before I went abroad.

During my studies at UNMC, the biggest challenge is self-study. I had to read a lot of books and articles to clearly understand the lecture. An abundance of text books and additional reading materials are mostly available in the library, which is open 24/7 throughout the examination period.
Studying abroad can be difficult but surely interesting. I had to face with many barriers when trying to adapt to a new culture. In Malaysia, there are Malaysian, Indian and Chinese people. When we want to make friend with locals, we have to do a little research about their habits. For example, the eating habit: most of Malaysian (the Muslim) cannot eat pork, and a portion of Chinese people cannot eat beef because of their religion. The biggest cultural challenge for me is food. You cannot imagine how much I miss Vietnamese food after one semester studying here. However, Malaysia have a big plus: it has 3 cuisines: Malaysian, Indian and Chinese cuisine. Because of its diversity ethnic, many types of dishes can be found here.

UNMC provides an inspiring environment to study and a world-leading research orientation to follow. For some modules in Science department, such as Software Engineering Group Project, we have a full-year project to work on to gain valuable experience and skills. In my case, I had to work with a real client in industry whilst lecturers were clients for other groups. Excitingly, I had an opportunity to work in a multi-culture group. Communicating amongst Vietnamese, English, Russian, Indian, and Chinese people is really novel and challenging to me. A lot of interest to be named, like learning from harsh reality of the industry environment, learning the etiquette in business, or growing your relationship with a multinational corporation.
I can assure that UNMC is the best place to live ever beyond your imagination. A 24/7 convenience store serves you any groceries you want as well as frozen or fresh food. For entertaining, we have TV rooms, pool and football tables, an upright piano, BBQ areas, and many other wonderful facilities, a stadium with fully equipped gyms and a swimming pool for robust exercise. A picturesque and beautiful lake on campus is ideal for strolling or jogging in the evening. For me, I could say that joining Choir team in Music Society is the best decision ever I have made. I had a great deal of chances to work with experienced people in Arts and Music department, to extensively improve my singing skills, and to harmonize a bunch of lovely songs in a warm and cozy atmosphere. We have been through ups and downs on stage where together we felt over the moon when singing stories to hundreds of audiences. Without those, my student life would be nothing but insipid days with loads of works.
Moving to a new country and adapting to a different environment can be exciting, yet daunting. Thus a rational plan with specific milestones is in need to manage everything on progress. Some advice are: set your personal goals, make a detailed schedule to pursue it, engage with staff and other students for assistance and improve your English with all of your best.
