Tuoi Tre (Youth) newspaper held a ceremony on Friday to kick off its training collaboration with Nguyen Tat Thanh University, in which the news agency will teach the latter’s students communication modules, heralding a novel media training paradigm in Vietnam.

Nearly 200 full-time university students majoring in public relations and multimedia communication at Ho Chi Minh City-based Nguyen Tat Thanh University will be engaging in a training program hosted by Tuoi Tre at its newsroom.

This marks a pioneering collaboration where a newspaper directly contributes modules to a university curriculum. 

This innovative initiative emphasizes practical learning and the creation of authentic media content, with students delving into subjects such as media photo organization, electronic communication product production, and media publication design within the premises of Tuoi Tre’s office.

This immersive approach ensures the students develop a robust understanding of both theory and practice, gaining insights into the intricacies of media production and event organization. 

To keep pace with digital advancements, Nguyen Tat Thanh University and Tuoi Tre have collaborated on curriculum development, aligning with contemporary trends in public and media systems.
