Nisay-Profile

Mr. Sroeun Nisay received his MA degree in Educational Administration from The University of Cambodia (UC) in 2015. Currently he is the Senior Vice-Principal at Sovannaphumi School, Takhmao Campus. Prior to starting his MA degree, he graduated from BA in English from
The University of Cambodia in 2010.

“UC has prepared me to be an effective and excellent leader in the educational field.
My work is going very well and I practice what I have learnt from UC. Studying educational administration has enabled me to learn about leadership and management in education, both in theory and in practical application. Furthermore, I have learnt from other interesting elective courses that were related to my major and they have proven to be very valuable. The Associate Dean Khun Channy and Vice President Dr. Y Ratana were very helpful to me, especially when
I was writing my research paper. I really appreciate the E-library which gave me access to a large array of academic journals and literature for my research. All of my classmates were also
very helpful. We shared something special together which helped improve our learning.
After I graduated from my MA degree at UC, I was promoted to be a Senior Vice-Principal at Sovannaphumi School, Takhmao Campus, Kandal province. For our current students, I would like to say, choose the major which is related to the job that you wish to do or the job that is in accord with the market’s needs in the future, for instance the tourism industry.”
