I was at Warwick from October 2010 to October 2013 and did my doctoral research in Applied Linguistics. My supervisors were Prof. Helen Spencer-Oatey and Dr Steve Mann.

Do you have any fond memories?

Yes, I do. My first impressions of Warwick were really memorable when my supervisor came to Coventry train station to pick me up and drive me home. There are many good things at Warwick. I really like the library and the staff in the Centre for Applied Linguistics.

I lived in Coventry, a flat in Cannon Park Road near Tesco and Warwick campus.

I was a member of Vietnamese Society and Warwick Badminton Team.

What are you doing now?

Why did you decide to become an alumni ambassador?

Because I love the University of Warwick very much and I would like more and more students in the world to know about Warwick by sharing with them my wonderful experiences during the time I was there.
