Meet our Vietnamese Student and Alumni Community

Studying in the UK is more than just gaining a degree, it is an opportunity to learn from new experiences, develop self confidence and initiative and to make fantastic memories that we hope will last a lifetime. Find out more about what it is like to live and study at the University of Lincoln by reading some of our Vietnamese student and Alumni stories below.


"I found the University of Lincoln to be a wonderful environment with great teachers and facilities. As part of my degree I had the opportunity to take part in a placement year with Citibank. This helped me enormously with my career as upon returning to Vietnam I was able to secure a great position with global banking giant HSBC, where I am working as a Risk Analyst.  

I highly recommend the University of Lincoln to anyone considering to study here."

Le Ho, BA (Hons) Accountancy and Finance graduate and Risk Analyst, HSBC


"The University, particularly the Lincoln Law School, provided me with the most helpful support and advice whenever I needed it, not only in terms of my studies but also my wellbeing. Graduating in the historic and magnificent Lincoln Cathedral could not be a better way to mark the end of your proud hard-working journey at the University."

Thien Ly Huynh, LLM International Business Law graduate and Associate at LNT & Partners

"I am very proud to have studied in the UK and the University of Lincoln. My master’s degree has helped me to cultivate a range of leadership skills and most importantly a growth mindset.

I also gained new skills outside of the classroom thanks to taking part in the University’s Students’ Union elections – this really helped me develop a can-do attitude which remains with me to this day. Thank you to the University of Lincoln for the wonderful experiences I have gained."

Chi Pham Linh, MSc International Business graduate and Senior Manager at Manulife Vietnam
