Tell us about yourself and your studies

I was born and raised in Ho Chi Minh City - one of the biggest and most energetic cities in Vietnam. After four years of studying at Centria University of Applied Sciences in Kokkola, I was excited to come to Tampere to study in the master's programme. While doing my internship in Spain, my team leader was studying for a Master's at Tampere University and inspired me a lot. At that time, the picture of my future path was more straightforward, and I realized that I would strive to get advanced in UX/UI Design. Now I am proudly a part of the Human-Technology Interaction study track at Tampere University with a full tuition fee scholarship.

Can you share with us your experiences in Tampere and Finland?

Tampere never sleeps. Everything is available around you, and the living cost of a student cannot limit your potential. It means that as a student, you can get discounts from most of the places, from public transport to museums, discounts from some stores. At the university, I get to team up with many talented and humble classmates, we can share our opinions on various perspectives and be respected as individuals. Before officially studying at Tampere University, I read some books and joined online courses about UX and it made my expectations of the school courses even higher. Now, I am totally satisfied with my choice, with the quality of each lecture and literature offered at Tampere University.

What would you say to someone who is thinking about studying and living in Tampere?

Tampere is absolutely a student-friendly city. Prepare yourself with a fresh and open mind to explode your creativity and innovation at Tampere University.
