Vietnam has taken the lead in a global list of university campuses coming from different countries, according to a recent report in Britain.
The report has just been published by the Observatory on Borderless Higher Education, an organization functioning as an information channel amongst universities around the world.
With more than 6,000 students, RMIT International University Vietnam heads the global list of the top 15 international branch campuses in terms of student numbers.
The latest 2012 report marked a strong shift to the Asian region as universities worldwide are establishing and expanding campuses in locations faraway from their original home sites.
Professor Merilyn Liddell, RMIT Vietnam Rector, said that it’s great to see her university’s success in attracting students which is recognised in such a prestigious international publication.
Liddell also pointed out that RMIT Vietnam’s tuition fees, while relatively high by Vietnamese standards, are at a lower level in comparison to other international universities in the world.
Australia’s Monash University and the UK’s Nottingham University also stand in the top five, for their campuses in Malaysia and China respectively, while AMA International University in Bahrain (established by a Philippino company) ranks fourth. Source: VOV
