Professor Phung Xuan Nha, Vietnam’s Minister of Education and Training, visited Cambridge International’s headquarters to oversee the signing of an agreement that will see Cambridge International’s qualifications more widely adopted in his country.
The professor led a delegation of more than 60 university and school leaders from Vietnam. During the visit a Memorandum of Collaboration was signed that will see four new Vietnamese universities recognise Cambridge International A Level qualifications. Hanoi University of Science and Technology, Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology and Education, the National Academy of Education Management, and the Mekong University will now recognise and welcome Cambridge International students to their undergraduate programmes.
These universities join the Vietnam National University (Hanoi), RMIT University Vietnam, British University Vietnam, and FPT University who already recognise Cambridge International A Levels for admission onto university courses.
The visit also saw Dr Hoang Minh Son, President of the Hanoi University of Science and Technology, sign a Co-operation Memorandum with Cambridge Assessment, under which his university Ta Quang Buu High School will begin to offer our A level programme in the 2019 academic year.
The programme is currently taught in more than 50 well-known international, private and state schools in Vietnam, helping to make Cambridge Vietnam’s most recognised international qualification provider for high school leavers entering state universities.
Melvyn Lim, Country Manager for Vietnam and Myanmar, Cambridge International, said: ‘Vietnamese students consistently perform well in Cambridge examinations, and we are thrilled that well-known universities and secondary schools continue to recognise the strength and benefits of Cambridge qualifications.
'We look forward to working closely with schools and universities nationwide to ensure the successful growth of the Cambridge International A level system and making Cambridge International qualifications more accessible to Vietnamese students.'
