Due to the complex situations of COVID-19 in different provinces, many students have been and still are affected tremendously in terms of physical health, mental health, and of course their studying. Fulbright University Vietnam has received many inquiries on whether the school can extend the application period for Class of 2026 Spring Cycle. Understanding that the circumstance is beyond the students’ control, the Admissions and Financial Aid office has decided to extend the application deadline until 14:00 on April 25, 2022.

We sincerely advise you to spend this time learning more about Fulbright through the below channels:

☀️ If you’re currently residing in or near Ho Chi Minh city, you can register for our Campus Tour: Sunset by the Lake – a program where you can come for a leisure walk around our campus and the Crescent Lake, enjoying boba milk tea with our Fulbrighters. Due to limited capacity, please register asap: https://bit.ly/campustour22.

☀️ If you’re currently residing in other provinces, you can follow the Facebook page of the Admissions team (Road to Fulbright University Vietnam) to know where our Admissions Officers and Fulbright Buddies will host our coffee chats. The first series of coffee chats in the Central region has been kick-started: https://bit.ly/SpringCentralCoffeeChat.

☀️ If you’ve just opened an application and need some advice, stay tuned for our webinars, organized by the Admissions Office, our Tamarind Team, or Fulbright Buddies. Finally, don’t forget our FACT program (Fulbright Admissions Companion Team), where we pair an applicant with a Fulbright student for 1-on-1 consultation. Register by March 20: https://bit.ly/FACT-registration.

The wait is finally over! Fulbright University Vietnam has launched our admissions application portal for the Priority Cycle of the Undergraduate Class of 2026 at www.apply.fulbright.edu.vn. The portal will close at 2 p.m. on Monday, November 29, 2021; unlike previous years, our portal will NOT close at Sunday midnight anymore.

Another difference is that this year application requires applicants to submit an English certificate (if you’re not ready by the time the application closes, you can submit it by the individual interview round). To read more information on which certificates are accepted and which scenarios can be considered an exception to this rule, please refer to the above application portal or our official Admissions’ Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/RoadtoFUV.

Besides, our Facebook page also provides helpful programs to supports students who are not confident with their English yet (like the writing contest we’re organizing with Dickinson College, or the R2F Language Club’s bi-weekly mini-challenges.) Don’t forget to participate if you haven’t.

Compared to the Spring cycle, the Priority cycle will offer the many benefits:
+ You have twice the chance of getting admitted (if you’re not lucky in the Priority round yet, you can re-apply in the Spring and your application has already been saved on the portal)
+ You will have more time to learn about Fulbright as well as knowing your college destination before graduating from high school (Priority Cycle’s result will be announced tentatively by the end of March 2022; Spring Cycle’s result will be announced tentatively around early July 2022)
+ You will have more financial aid and scholarship opportunities (Nguyen Phuong Family Scholarship is reserved only for students who applied in the Priority cycle this year; Fulbright University Vietnam scholarship will be available for both)

We are looking forward to reading the stories, the personal essays, the original pieces of work from prospective applicants this year. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Admissions office via our office number 028 7303 7788 or our office email apply@fulbright.edu.vn.
