Special Arrangement Sruthi Vijayachandran with the award presented to her by Dr. Michael Milanovic, Chief Executive of University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations.

Sruthi Vijayachandran, a postgraduate student from Tamil Nadu, has been awarded a scholarship to study MBA at the London School of Business Finance after being awarded the First Prize in the final of the Best Young Speaker from Asia competition held at Robinson College, University of Cambridge.

Ms. Vijayachandran, who hails from Coonoor, was among nine young English language students from across Asia flown to Britain to take part in the competition that involved giving two presentations with a business theme and answering a series of questions put to them by an expert panel.

She described it as “an amazing experience”.

Simon Wright of the University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations (English for Speakers of Other Languages Examinations), which organised the competition, said: “Sruthi has a real flair for communications and this really showed on the day. Her talent and ability really caught the eyes of the judges and I’d like to congratulate her for such an impressive performance.”

Organisers said that Ms. Vijayachandran, who holds a Master’s Degree in public relations, secured a place in the final by “impressing judges with her English speaking ability” at the regional rounds held earlier this year.

She also recently passed Cambridge English: Business Vantage (BEC) – a high level business English qualification developed by Cambridge ESOL.

Wish you all the best for a brighter career ahead. The whole nation should feel proud about your great feat.
