The Prime Minister has signed Decision 1428/QĐ-TTg, permitting the establishment of the British University Vietnam in Hanoi.
The British University Vietnam is a tertiary education establishment invested by the Apollo Education and Training Organisation.
The university is placed under the state management on education and training by the Vietnamese Ministry of Education and Training.
According to its website at www.britishuniversity.edu.vn, the British University Vietnam project was officially launched in Ha Noi last September.
The university has its headquarters in Hanoi and a branch in Ho Chi Minh City .
At the beginning it will operate out of a rented facility but will then build its own premises within 3 years. The short term target is to have 1,000 students with a medium term target of tripling the figure and a long term target of 10,000 students.
The university will focus on degrees in business and technology offering full degrees from the two key cooperation partners – University of London and Staffordshire University. All study programmes at the British University Vietnam will be taught in English.
The British University Vietnam says the degrees it offers at it are exactly the same as those offered at UK universities./.
