Mr. Han Menghuot


Mr. Han Menghuot received his BA degree in Information Technology from The University of Cambodia (UC) in 2011.
Currently he is a Reporting Engineer at DMC Ltd, working on a telecom project for The Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications.

Mr. Menghuot mentioned that:
“I was a recipient of a full scholarship from UC to study my BA degree under the Samdech Techo Hun Sen-Dr. Haruhisa Handa National Scholarships (2007-2011) Scheme. It was a life changing opportunity for me which
has enabled me to pursue my higher education.

Additionally, I was offered a 6-month internship program in the College of Science and Technology, to gain practical work experience and this was where I gained knowledge from the courses and obtained important skillsets for my career and my life.

UC to me was not just a place to study, but it was also the place where I made lasting friendships. I am still in contact with many fellow students from the same major and with friends from different majors.

I have fond memories of the Toshu Fukami Library, where I spent a lot of time to read, research and do my assignments. This still remains a special place in my memory.

To me, having a clear and worthy dream in our life helps us to push ourselves to study hard and use our time wisely and effectively in our self-development and in helping others in our family, society and our country. There are a lot of lessons learnt in this life and
I hope that more people could consider overcoming our differences and work together in order to help develop Cambodia.”

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.

Mr. Chhea Kuntheara


Mr. Chhea Kuntheara received his BA degree in Finance and Banking from The University of Cambodia (UC) in 2012. Currently he is pursuing a two-year Master degree in Practicing Accounting at Swinburne University of Technology in Melbourne, Australia. Prior to this,
he worked as a Credit Administration Clerk and later as a Business Relationship Executive
in Maybank.

Mr. Kuntheara said that:
“The University of Cambodia is like a home where fundamentals and knowledge are being
built for different fields of profession. Furthermore, UC taught me to be a person who
will always fight for knowledge. All teachers are very supportive and friendly. I had heaps
of good friends whom I would hang out with and study and we still maintain contact.
In my opinion, to achieve a better grade, you need to practice and practice. Attending classes
are not enough and it requires more hours to attempt all materials and practice outside the classrooms. But one must remember that life should be balanced.  Hence one’s study and personal life and wellbeing must go hand in hand: eat well, relax and have enough sleep.”
