Three Vietnamese students – Nguyen Lam Phuc Doan, Phan Thi Hoang Yen and Ho Kim Hoa – have won the 2017 British Council IELTS Prize worth VND62.2 million (US$2,736) each to pursue their dreams of studying overseas.

Launched in 2011 by the British Council, the annual prize honors high-caliber individuals in East Asian countries, including Vietnam, who demonstrate the potential to contribute to society what they have gained from their undergraduate/postgraduate study experience locally or overseas.

The prize enables students to take any chosen course in an undergraduate or postgraduate program of a higher institution that accepts IELTS as part of its admission requirements.

To date, the prize has supported a total of 170 students in East Asia to attend universities worldwide. This year, 36 young people in the world won the prize.

Nguyen Lam Phuc Doan, one of three winning students, said in a statement sent to the Daily on July 19 that the prize would open up opportunities for young people to gain access to international education.
