Prices & Packages

Ho Chi Minh City, or Saigon, has long been considered as a focal point of the Vietnamese culture. Today, the city has a cosmopolitan and energetic atmosphere, being the country’s economic powerhouse with an ever-increasing number of business-minded citizens. District 1 is the central urban area, a mecca for exclusive designer boutiques and galleries, but also for architectural gems such as the Saigon Notre Dame Basilica, Opera House and Reunification Palace. Boasting a population of over 8 million people, this is one of the densest urban areas in the world.

Why

  • Growth in tertiary student mobility
  • The number of Vietnamese tertiary students studying abroad has increased significantly to 53,546 in 2013, up from 23,334 in 2006 according to UNESCO’s Institute for Statistics.

  • Top emerging market
  • A 2012 WES report identified Vietnam as one of the top four emerging countries for international students recruitment. The report points out that 45% of the country’s population is under the age of 25, which combined with a booming economy promises a stable flow of Vietnamese students in the near future.

  • Economic growth
  • With an increasing GDP per capita and an economy that is boosting household incomes, Vietnam is making study abroad more affordable for a greater proportion of families.

  • Quality issues with home institutions
  • The Minister of Education Pham Vu Luan has shared his concerns that some local universities are producing graduates “who still cannot meet the requirements of employers, especially English and informatics knowledge” and according to researchers from Harvard Kennedy School, Vietnam’s higher education sector system is in “crisis”.
