My Experience Studying at DPUIC
by Mr. Sin Uksa
Hello! My name is Sin Uksa. I’m a Cambodia student. I’m a first year student in DPU. So I’m very happy to study at DPU because DPU is a big and beautiful university. Other thing is that DPU is a famous university in Bangkok. It is ranked No.3 among the biggest universities in Bangkok. Another point is that DPU has a big library that supports self-study for students, doing assignment, doing research or whatever. In the library, there are many books and documents for student to read and do research. And also there is a really quiet good atmosphere. It encourages students to read books. Also DPU has a big sport place for students including a football field, tennis courts, a basketball field, a gym, and a swimming pool. Students can play any sport they would like to play. It’s good for health and reduces stress after class. DPU also has fun activities for students to enjoy at DPU. Actually teachers and staff are really friendly and care about students. Teachers are famous professors who have completed doctoral studies and degrees from both inside and outside the country, with many years of experience in teaching and the ability to transfer the knowledge to the students. In the class there is a good atmosphere that encourages students to study and get lessons from the teacher. DPU has a lot of Thai students and foreign students who come from different countries like England, China, Japan, Vietnam, Cambodia, Bhutan, the Philippines, Myanmar Lao, Singapore, Malaysia, etc. The students here are so friendly. We can exchange cultures.
The first time when I came here, I thought I would be bored because I live far away from my family. I have never lived away from my family before. I really miss my family. But when I saw many Cambodia students studying here and they told me about some of the experiences that they have had, I thought I should live far away from my family because I’m not a kid any more. Now I’m 18 years old. So I can do everything by myself and weigh up what’s good, and what’s bad. When I study here I have some problem with English, because my English is poor and I can’t speak Thai also. It’s very difficult for me to communicate with Thai people. Recently I have tried to study hard to improve my English language and Thai language. Actually nowadays I can communicate a little bit with Thai people and my English is improving. The subject that I choose to study here is IBA in IB (Business Administration concentration in International Business).English is especially important in this subject. Every lesson is in English. Generally the students who study this subject are foreign. They use English to communicate with the teacher and classmates. English is very important in this subject. Finally I am very thankful to the staff and the Cambodian students who study at DPU who provide warmth to me like a big family.
