Dr. Hong Kimcheang received his BA degree in English Literature from The University of Cambodia (UC) in 2007. Currently he is the President of Kampong Speu Institute of Technology, Ministry of Education, Youth and Sport. Previously he was a teacher and completed his PhD in TEFL at Chulalongkorn University and Educational Administration at Burapha University, Thailand.
Dr. Kimcheang mentioned that: “UC motivated me to keep going forward, especially in my academic life. My memorable times at UC were enjoyable learning experiences, and I appreciated the flexibility and quality of academic programs. I still remain in contact with friends from UC – a few of these are Mr. Chhim Sopheak, Mr. Chea Pum, and Mr. Uon Silot.
Academic writing was extremely difficult to understand. However, I realized that it was really helpful, and it provided me with a good foundation for my academic courses when I was in Graduate Programs (Master and Doctoral Degree Programs). During my time, UC was small in terms of campus and facilities. On the other hand, it was big in terms of ambition and quality.
I learnt that a lot of UC students were successful in their academic life and careers. I am delighted to be a UC alumni. Successful learning comes from personal interest and effort, quality of instruction, and the surrounding environment. UC fostered these, to my everlasting gratitude.”Share on Facebook
