Far Eastern University (FEU), through its International Relations Office (IRO), launched “TamBound: FEU Goes Global!”, a set of outbound mobility programs. With the goal of exposing Tamaraws to the culture, gastronomy, and academic dynamics of foreign countries, TamBound will be sending students to FEU’s partner universities, Far East University in Chungcheong province, South Korea and FPT University in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam this June.

Happening from June 9 to 15, the short-term immersion program with FPT University in Vietnam will allow Tamaraws to experience Vietnamese culture through workshops and classes on musical instruments, language, and martial arts, as well as tours of historical and cultural landmarks and tourist spots in Ho Chi Minh like Independence Palace, Cu Chi Tunnel, Nguyen Hue Walking Street, Mekong Delta, and Ben Thanh Street Food Market.

The immersion program with Far East University in South Korea will include a guided tour of FEU Korea campus, several cultural exchange activities and workshops, a Korean language and history class, a tour in Chungcheongbuk-do, and an excursion to Seoul.

Ven-Mar Cudog, the coordinator in-charge of the outbound mobility program, said he himself had participated in such a program and shared the value of the experience.

“As an FEU alumnus, I hope my fellow Tamaraws recognize the long-term benefits of this short-term immersion program for their studies and future. Through such program, I pursued my graduate studies with a scholarship at our partner university, Far East University, leading to eight years of valuable international exposure and growth in South Korea,” said Cudog.

Tamaraws who wish to participate in these outbound mobility programs will be considered eligible if they are: at least 18 years old; in possession of a valid passport; with good academic standing; and physically and mentally fit for participation in the short-term immersion abroad.
