Especially, UC has been a chance for me to develop and learn more about higher levels of the English language. To help me move forward in my career, UC also offered me soft skills such as communication skills, which are important traits to help me get to the top of my career field.
I also very much appreciate keeping in contact with UC for conferences, and the opportunity to hear from famous Professors from foreign universities. This has also provided valuable opportunities for students to ask questions and learn more.

UC played an important role in preparing me for my life. It has been like a bridge that has
helped me to be where I am now. It’s the place that has taught me to be respectful to
lecturers and my good friends. Together, we enjoyed the events that UC presented,
although I especially missed the New Year celebrations!
“At UC I was able to study courses conducted in English, which helped improve
my speaking and writing skills, not to also mention the excellent CES course I took.”
I was also able to enrol in my favourite courses by way of the Credit System.
These were the courses that enabled me to make friends with other students who
were not from the same major I was studying.”
Mr. Rath Darapisuor received his BA degree in International Relations from
The University of Cambodia (UC) in 2014. Currently he is the Governance Project
Manager at Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO), a UK’s based organization.
Mr. Darapisuor mentioned about his career and his education that:
“After working for almost 2 years with Transparency International Cambodia, I was successfully selected as the Programme Support Officer at the Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO), UK’s based organisation. Because of my performance and commitment, 6 months
after I started, I was promoted to Health Programme Manager for another 6 months until the programme phased out. Earlier this year, I was successfully selected as the Governance Project Manager in the same organisation to manage the 30-month project with a total amount of
1 million Euro. Currently, I am managing 4 staff, 9 long-term international volunteers, 3 implementing partners and 8 Provincial CSO networks as the primary actors. My life has improved because of the strong academic education at University of Cambodia along with my esteemed professors who were always motivating students to study hard and be smart.
UC has provided me with a strong academic foundation, which has enabled me to jump into the labour
market with a competitive edge. Thank you to the open-minded professors who always gave advice to me.
The most memorable encounters during my student life at UC were the Mid-term and Final Examinations.
For each course, they were absolutely strict. Students were kept in the same hall with mixtures of student from different faculties so that cheating would not be possible. This could guarantee a high quality of education and
as a result, I could see that most of my classmates could compete with the current labour market.
If I were to leave some notes for my fellow students who are still studying at UC now, it would be:
“Please do not study more than one degree if you are working at the same time. Be smart in your career development
by setting a clear goal with what exactly you want to be, so you can make a clear plan to achieve it.”
During the academic life, I knew what I wanted to be and then I made my plan in terms of how to achieve it.
As a result, I could achieve a management position within a 2-year time frame after my graduation from The University of Cambodia.
I am very proud to be a UC student. Last but not least, I do hope that the next generation can achieve more than I could do.”

I would like to say that UC is an educational institution with high potential that provides real knowledge and produces real talent and capable members in our society.”
