Education is one of the key pillars in the UK-Vietnam bilateral strategic partnership and receives investment from the Government and the private sector. Of a total population of 95m, almost 2m are studying in universities and the Ministry of Education and Training (MOET) has developed a comprehensive transformation of Higher Education, including granting autonomy to universities. UK Education is highly regarded and, of the 500 current TNE programmes in Vietnam, the UK is ranked third.
The significant opportunities in TNE, including joint degrees; technology transfer; quality assurance and leadership skills training are all growing areas of interest in the country. As a result of this strong interest, the Department for International Trade (DIT), working with the British Council and UUKi led a UK Higher Education mission to the market timed to coincide with the UK/Vietnam Joint Economic & Trade Committee (JETCO) talks in Vietnam.
During the mission, LJMU were able to showcase their University offerings, meet with the UK Ambassador to Vietnam, Gareth Ward, and hold business to business meetings to ignite discussions surrounding the development of transnational education opportunities.
LJMU were also present at the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between DIT and MOET to further progress and build upon their relationship.
