ACADEMIC EXCHANGE PROGRAM
Joining in a student exchange program abroad, you can open yourself to a world of opportunities. The adventure lasts for a semester or a year but the experience will enrich the rest of your life. In this program, you will experience living in another country for a period of time and return with new knowledge, cultural understanding, maturity and lifelong friends from Vietnam.
Our student exchange program ranges from 1 semester to a full academic year and the available courses will be updated every semester for students’ choices. All the results will be transferred back to your home university to be put on record.
