Mr. Pa Vachana


Mr. Pa Vachana received his BA in English literature from The University of Cambodia (UC) in 2015. Currently he is an Administrative Officer at EDC (Electricity of Cambodia).
Prior to this, he was an IT Technician at TE AIK HONG Co, Ltd.

Mr. Vachana has mentioned that:
“After UC, I can say that my life has become much better and easier. I have got more confidence to show to the public; I am stronger in knowledge of both soft and hard skills. I am recognised as a UC alumnus. This helps me to obtain good opportunities both in career and everyday life.
UC is where my knowledge in English language began and improved. I can now use my English to enhance my studying, researching, communicating, and working performance. Because of these English skills, I passed most of my interviews, especially in the short-listing process. This is because almost all companies consider English to be necessary, in addition to our specific skills. So this means that UC provided me with the best and right knowledge to get good opportunities and good jobs.

Thinking about UC makes me remember all my beloved, knowledgeable, and respectful lecturers who tried so hard to teach and share whatever they had to give to students. Besides, UC reminds me about my group presentations and the hard work of each member to get the presentation done well.
My most unforgettable time was when I was in term 1 and went on a study tour to Mondolkiri province, arranged by my history lecturer. I was very excited to see the real aspects of what I was learning about in the books. And we have formed great friendships with other students. Regardless of our study major or the generation we were in.

Lecturer Seng Ra and Ly Vannarath are my favourite lecturers because they taught me many important courses which contain interesting novels and short stories from famous writers around the world. And these were all are the main courses in order to complete my bachelor’s degree in English.

Lecturer Ly Solim, who I consider as a long perspective lecturer, taught me in MKT 306 and HTM 305. These two enable me to remember all the good and important lessons I learnt with him. He shared the knowledge of business concepts, how to become a successful businessman, and he guided all students to be ready for the upcoming years.

Lecturer Chum Chandarin was also important, because he taught me how to make presentations (including my very first presentation in University life).

Professor Dep Sopahl taught me in KHM 140. He reviewed what I had learnt in high school. He taught me how to make professional group presentations (Khmer context). I also experienced with him our first study tour to learn more about the culture of some tribes living in the northeast of Cambodia.

PST 102 taught by Professor In Sophal. From this course I learnt how to do research papers, which has been very useful for students in academic as well as professional environments.

I still keep in touch with my best friends such as Khan Sokummono (IR), Chou Cheameas (Eng), Hor Kimsophorn (Eng), Lim KimY (Eng),
Mean Sreyrun (LAW), and Tex Kimmey (LAW).

In the name of UC alumni, I have some words to share to my younger generation who are currently studying at UC. “Never stop learning no matter how old you are because one day in the future you will realise how important your knowledge is.” “Better try hard now or you will regret later when you cannot come back.”

Miss Khorn Dalin


Miss Khorn Dalin received her BA in International Relations from
The University of Cambodia (UC) in 2014. Currently she is an Officer at
the National Bank of Cambodia. Prior to this, she has furthered her Master of Development Policy at the KDI School of Public Policy and Management in the Republic of Korea. She is also studying for her BA of Finance and Banking.

Miss. Dalin stated that:
“I do appreciate the student-centred education system at UC where teachers encourage students to voice their opinions. This provides the opportunity for students to confidently voice their ideas and concerns. I learned a lot from UC such as English language skills, knowledge of social issues, and networking.
I still keep in touch with many fellow students.

I have good memories of UC such as: recognition and rewarding of hard work, and the diversity of friends I was able to make.

I have some words for current students about how to be successful in their lives:

–    Be strong for upcoming challenges
–    Be ready for upcoming opportunities
–    Be grateful for what you have
–    Always have hope and dream freely
–    Shine and Bloom!
–    Plan and draw your destiny by yourself.

I couldn’t believe, and I didn’t think I deserved to gain the highest GPA in foundation year at UC, because my English was not that good compared to other classmates. Then I realized that different people have different talents and uniqueness—and so do I. My English was not good, yet I spent more time and effort on it, which was recognized and rewarded.”
