More than 1,100 international students study in Vietnam: ministry

More than 1,100 international students study in Vietnam: ministry

Sunday, October 25, 2015, 14:42 GMT+7

There are over 1,100 international students currently studying, doing their internships, and joining academic exchange programs in Vietnam, according to the Ministry of Education and Training.

They are doing so at 23 universities that run exchange and advanced programs together with their international partners, the ministry said.

Talking to Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper, Deputy Minister of Education and Training Bui Van Ga said previously there was a number of international students coming to Vietnam to study, mainly from Laos, Cambodia, China, South Korea, and Japan, but the count was not high.

According to the official, international students in Vietnam are more diverse at the moment, with many coming from the European Union and North America.

One important reason for the surge is that many universities have offered advanced training programs taught entirely in English, which helps international students find it more favorable to choose the Southeast Asian country as their academic destination, Deputy Minister Ga said.
