  1. Anh Tùng ơi,

    Anh cho em hỏi chút. A có biết bạn nào từng được học bổng La Caixa này không. Em muốn contact để hỏi chút kinh nghiệm. Thanks anh nhiều ah.

    Rgs,
    Hằng Đỗ

  2. Anh Tùng ơi cho em hỏi, nhiều học bổng nói là tiêu chí tuyển dựa trên academic merit. Vậy thực chất academic merit là gì? Chỉ đơn thuần là thành tích học tập trên giảng đường ĐH, điểm GPA thôi hay bao gồm cả nhưng hoạt động ngoại khóa nữa?

    • Theo anh hiểu thì academic merit nghĩa là những thứ có giá trị học thuật, nghĩa là thành tích học tập của em, điểm GPA, hoặc có thêm cả các hoạt động nghiên cứu khoa học. Hoạt động ngoại khóa không tính là academic merit.

  3. Em cám ơn anh!😀
