PHNOM PENH – Students always face a challenge choosing a university and deciding on a major after graduating from school. To solve this problem, Sok Leap has developed an app to provide information on courses, jobs and scholarships.
Leap, 37, said the Sala app has information on each major at 40 universities, public and private, across the country though most are in Phnom Penh.
He said students should be sure to find enough information and understand the skills before enrolling.
As a former student majoring in technology and working in this field, he said the app has been around for over two years, helping students find information on majors, programs, scholarships, general information and other school aspects.
He said young people should build self-discovery, passion, talent and dreams because these they were the motivating factors for young people to choose a good skill for their future.
“Everyone has different interests, growth, and preferences. The Sala app also has a function for them to find out about themselves more clearly,” he said.
“The Sala App focuses on self-discovery, providing information related to careers, skills and schools throughout Phnom Penh.
Sala app has information on each major at 40 universities, public and private, across the country though most are in Phnom Penh.
For inclusion on the app, he collects advertisements from universities, including Facebook, websites and school flyers. The information must also be verified with the college before being included in the app to ensure it’s useful and up to date.
Sok Leap encouraged young people to learn to understand themselves clearly before deciding so as not to waste time and money.
The app has easily accessible information in categories covering universities and colleges, majors and courses, student loans, events and scholarships.
Students must download the app to click on majors or universities they like. There is a lot of information such as subjects or courses in each major, how much they pay per year, and how to get a scholarship from that school.
