The Vietnam National University-Ho Chi Minh City (VNU-HCMC) and the National University of Singapore (NUS) have discussed a new partnership to provide pathways for students who have completed the first three years of their bachelor’s programs at VNU-HCMC to continue on their educational journey and obtain master’s degrees at NUS.

The two sides signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on cooperation at the VNU-HCMC campus in Thu Duc City under Ho Chi Minh City on Wednesday.

During the signing ceremony, Prof. Aaron Thean, deputy president and provost at NUS, suggested that VNU-HCMC students can transfer to NUS for a one-year graduate program after three years of undergraduate study at VNU-HCMC's six member universities. 

Upon completion, they receive a bachelor’s degree from their Vietnamese university and a master’s from NUS. 

Those who are academically excellent can receive a scholarship for a four-year NUS doctoral program, completing the entire academic journey in eight years.

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Vu Hai Quan, president at VNU-HCMC, affirmed VNU-HCM’s support for NUS’ collaboration proposal, emphasizing a focus on implementing this training model in four key areas until 2030, which includes semiconductor microchips, artificial intelligence, biotechnology, and biomedicine. 

Discussions between member schools of VNU-HCM and NUS representatives are ongoing to formulate specific plans for the implementation of the new training model.
