International University

Educational renovation is nowadays a global trend. Vietnam education, especially college education must put a step forward in the process of renovation and integration. Hanoi and Hochiminh city are the places to have key roles in being proactive in regional and global integration. We do this by providing high quality human resources in the nationally oriented cause of industrialization and modernization.
 
Therefore, in planning universities and college operational activities for the years 2001-2010 along with the Decision No. 472001 QD-TT issued on April 4, 2001, the Prime Minister demands the universities and colleges in Hanoi and Hochiminh to be the pioneers in the regional and international integration of college education; to enhance the national and international investment sources; to cooperate with the world prestige universities in enhancing quality of education.
 
Vietnamese learners, especially in Hochiminh City, have an increasing need of international quality education for world standard degrees via instructional languages of English and others. There is currently a big wave of people going abroad for their higher education, as well as of many overseas accredited universities with 2 plus 2 programs. Some overseas universities actually have or are preparing building grounds in Vietnam. Thus, in the medium-term strategy of development in the years 2001-2005, Vietnam National University-Hochiminh City clearly states “International University is founded to be cooperate with the overseas prestige universities in providing domestic education of studying-abroad quality to learners; thus, to set sample of educating and training in Vietnam National University.”
 
After two years of project planning, International University has obtained the decision for establishment signed by the Prime Minister on May 12, 2003.
