RMIT University Vietnam Scholarships: recognition of your achievements to date


RMIT University Vietnam Scholarships: recognition of your achievements to date

Whether you have already completed a bachelor degree at RMIT University Vietnam, or you’re seeking to study at RMIT University Vietnam for the first time as a masters student, we encourage you to apply for an RMIT University Vietnam postgraduate scholarship. Each year RMIT University Vietnam awards a range of scholarships valued at millions of dong for entry into our undergraduate and postgraduate programs offered in Vietnam.

To determine your eligibility, we will assess your achievements to date – leadership, academic success, engagement and work experience. If you’re shortlisted, we use these areas, as well as interviewing you, to determine those who would most benefit from the financial support that an RMIT University Vietnam scholarship can provide. Our scholarships are designed to assist students from a range of backgrounds to achieve their study and career ambitions.

Postgraduate scholarships

As part of RMIT University Vietnam’s ongoing commitment to fostering the professional and community leaders of the future, we offer postgraduate scholarships based on the quality of the submissions received. If you are a potential applicant you will be required to nominate and meet the entry requirements of the master program into which you seek entry. Scholarships are available for the following programs:

Applications and awards will be made for Postgraduate scholarships within the following category areas:

  • General entry postgraduate scholarships: If you are a Vietnamese national who has successfully completed an undergraduate program with a university in Vietnam, or overseas.
  • Partner-sponsored postgraduate scholarships: Partner-sponsored scholarships are awarded in partnership with external companies or organisations operating in Vietnam.  The nature of the program is to recognise academic excellence and merit in a field associated with the University and the partner organisation. Postgraduate scholarships are currently available for the Master of Engineering (Electronic and Computer Engineering) through AusAID.


RMIT University Vietnam has been providing access for Vietnamese students to undertake study at one of its two campuses through the award of scholarships for 11 years.  In this time it has awarded a total of 594 scholarships worth more than VND90 billion.

The application process

The application process for an RMIT University Vietnam scholarship will require you to provide or be involved in the following:

  1. Cover letter providing your contact details (name, home address, phone and email) and stating the category of scholarship for which this application applies
  2. A completed application for Admission to Degree Program form (For new students only)
  3. Your Scholarship Portfolio (see further information below)
  4. Interview (selected candidates only): Short-listed applicants will be required to attend an interview.

Preparing your Postgraduate Scholarship Portfolio

Your Postgraduate Scholarship Portfolio is an important way for us to learn more about you. It must be accurate, honest and clear in the way the information is presented. All references and academic results must be certified as accurate copies of original documents. We encourage you to take the time to consider how you can best present your talents, skills and achievements to date.

Your Portfolio should comprise the following elements:

a. Résumé/CV

  • Certified qualifications – undergraduate qualifications and assessment
  • Education – e.g. list of the schools and universities attended and the relevant dates
  • Evidence of English competence:
    • IELTS score from 5.5 (no band under 5.0); or
    • TOEFL score from 530 (TWE from 3.5) or
    • Internet based TOEFL from 71 (no band under 17); or
    • English ability equivalent to level 6 according to RMIT University Vietnam Academic English Program’s placement test
  • Two 3 x 4 passport photos and a certified copy of ID card

b. Statement of interest (approximately 600 words)

  • Long-term goals related to taking the program
  • Reasons why you want to study at RMIT University Vietnam
  • Reasons why you believe you will succeed in achieving your goals

c. Career and/or study related experience

Use this section to provide evidence of your interest in the broad area covered by the program to be studied at RMIT University Vietnam. This might include things such as:

  • Leadership and community-based activities (i.e. charity work)
  • Relevant work experience (paid or voluntary)
  • Attendance at relevant seminars or summer schools
  • Engagement in relevant clubs and societies (i.e. youth group membership, sport team membership…)

As a guide we would recommend that you use the ‘STAR’ interviewing technique to provide real-life examples of your experiences. This will enable us to obtain a better understanding of your level of engagement and successes to date.

STAR  stands for…  which means…
The context – tell us, in a sentence or two, the background of your example
What needed to happen? This should be general – it may have been a task that was given to you, or you may have identified this general need yourself.
What specific actions did YOU take to complete the task? How did you go about it and what considerations or decisions did you have to make?
What was the outcome of you getting involved? What did you achieve? What did you learn from the experience?  If you can, make these as detailed as possible.

d. Personal achievements

Half a printed A4 page highlighting your major achievements and any relevant certificates received through education, or work. These achievements could include things such as:

  • Prizes or awards for educational achievement
  • Recognition for outstanding work
  • Previous scholarship awards
  • Nominations/Letters of reference from the project manager, or community leader.
  • A reference from someone who has employed you, such as your supervisor or line manager, or higher.
