My current major in VietNam university is the English Language. I want to study Hospitality or even the English Literature in foreign country( Australia, USA, Canada..) Do I have any chance? or if have, do i need any requirements for this Master program? Are there many scholarships about 50-80% for these course? Thank you

There is very limited funding for taught masters degrees in the UK and the US. Your best bet would probably be at the top universities, such as Oxford, Cambridge, the Ivy League etc. In the UK there is usually more funding for PhDs, although within "the arts" (including English Literature) it's normally more competitive due to far less funding availability. However there are also relatively few "taught" masters degrees in the US among the top colleges that offer such scholarships, and in the UK, within "the arts" there are usually very few taught courses and they are primarily research based masters programmes.
Usually any funding will be for the full fees, if awarded, although there are some smaller scholarships (for example named scholarships or those offered by the colleges of Oxford and Cambridge individually). For PhDs, this normally also includes a maintenance stipend - the total value is normally equivalent to a starting graduate job (although it rarely increases year on year) and it's untaxed (all of this only applies to the UK).
