Mr. Ea Ratana


Mr. Ea Ratana received his BA degree in International Relations from The University of Cambodia (UC) in 2012. Currently he is an assistant to the spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation. At the same time he is pursuing a Master’s degree at Techo Sen School of Government and International Relations (TSS),
majoring in International Relations. Prior to this, he was an international news translator and English Newscaster for the South East Asia Television (SEATV).

Mr. Ratana has stated that:
“The University of Cambodia is generally renowned over a decade for providing students with high-quality education in combination with excellent learning facilities. The university offers interesting and up-to-date courses along with professional lecturers and worthy disciplines, has truly provided me with advanced academic knowledge and skill and sharpened my ability to achieve my goals in career and life.

There are many unforgettable things I still remember. UC provided good environment for students to enhance friendship and improve capacity.
I and other UC students had happily joined many activities, such as Khmer New Year Celebration, Student Entertainment Show, Debate Competition, and Mock ASEAN Summit, etc.

All lecturers were qualified and open-minded. They encouraged me and other students to study hard, do more researches and apply knowledge in real practice. Dr. Diep Sophal, who taught history courses, provided me and other students with deep understanding of Cambodian history through his broadened knowledge, long-time academic experience and easy-to-understand explanation.

To all current UC students: “As all of you are students, you are now in the most important point of your life. Your bright futures depend on how much commitment in learning you are performing now. Set your goals clearly and try hard to achieve them. Please don’t be tired of studying. Keep learning from the university, from the people around you, from our society and from other around the globe. Please share and exchange knowledge with people around you, create strong network, and contribute your knowledge and time for the benefits of communities and society. Your commitment along with UC’s assistance will reward you success in both academic and career life.”

During my second year at UC, I started to teach English to young students at a private school. That was my first job. After graduating, I joint SEATV as news broadcaster.  I had the chance to apply my knowledge of English in real practice and learn new skills from the work. At the same time, I could generate vital information regarding to real situation of politics, economy, conflicts, and other main events occurring in the country, region and the world.

My success in career and life is strongly contributed by UC. Thanks UC for providing me with the opportunity to generate knowledge and skill, to get to know many good friends and other people, and to reach my goal in life. Many other UC students also enjoy this type of benefit. So does the      next generation.
