Double university scholarship for former HSP student
Congratulations to EQI graduate Trinh Manh Do, who was recently awarded a prestigious Queensland University of Technology (QUT) Vice-Chancellor’s Scholarship to study a double degree in Maths and Science, majoring in Astrophysics.
The Vice-Chancellor’s program is QUT’s premier scholarship for students with outstanding academic achievement. Trinh, who studied High School Preparation (HSP) at Mitchelton State High School (SHS) and m at North Lakes State College, also received a QUT Dean’s Award for graduating from high school.
When he arrived in Australia from Vietnam in mid-2013, Trinh spoke limited English. His EQI academic journey began with the HSP to prepare for mainstream high school study and he progressed very quickly to excel in his studies. In early 2015, his particular interest in Physics and Astrophysics inspired us to make a short film about his school experiences.
Barry Duncan, Head of the International Department at North Lakes State College, says Trinh is an inspiration to all students.
“Trinh is a highly motivated young man who knew exactly what he wanted to achieve during his time at North Lakes State College. His work ethic was exceptional and as such he proved to be a great role model to other students. Trinh is truly an inspiration – not only to our international students, but to all students – hard work pays off!”
Barry acknowledged the excellent work of school staff, as well as Andrea Pugh and the international student team at Mitchelton SHS, in helping Trinh to build the foundation for his university studies.
On behalf of all our EQI schools and staff we wish Trinh all the best for his studies and look forward to sharing his future success.
