Bundhoo Urvashi (Monash International Merit Scholarship )


I am Urvashi Yashoda Devi Bundhoo, an ex-student of the Queen Elizabeth College. I really came to know about OVEC when I was offered a ten day assignment with the Australian Trade Commission (Austrade) to assist in the Educational fair in Mauritius from 5 to 10 February 2016 at the Mauritius Commercial Bank. There I got the opportunity to meet Dr Doris Chitson who was actively and passionately guiding students to choose universities and select their careers. Dr Doris Chitson played a vital role in helping me choosing Monash University and my field of study- Bachelor of Actuarial Science. Also, as I had scored 2 A* and 1 A at HSC level, she really encouraged me to apply for scholarships available at Monash University.  I am extremely happy to say that I have been offered the Monash International Merit Scholarship. This scholarship will greatly help to alleviate the financial cost to complete my studies at Monash. I take this opportunity to thank Ms Ashna who has greatly helped to process all the applications forms and continuously advising me on all the details about my admission, the scholarship and my visa status. I am extremely grateful to OVEC and wish that they continue in this laudable task of helping other students achieving their dreams.
