Target Audience
The International Education Fair Vietnam 2020 is targeted at high school leavers, university bachelor and master students and young professionals looking for bachelor, master, MBA and postgraduate study programs at top European, UK, US, Australian and Asian universities. This is your chance to meet talented students from the very best schools, colleges and universities in Vietnam.

The programs on display range from international bachelor and master programs to Graduate. LLM and MBA courses abroad and even language courses, university preparation courses and international traineeships. Students will have the opportunity to be in direct contact with representatives and directors of international institutions, with simultaneous translation by former exchange students who have studied abroad.

Student recruitment in Vietnam
Recruiting students from Vietnam has taken a flight over the past few years. With a population of nearly 90 million, about 60% of which is below the age of 35, Vietnam represents the top marketplace for student recruitment for overseas High Schools, International Learning Institutions, Language Schools, Technical Schools, Colleges, and Universities.

Student recruitment has taken a flight
The global economic crisis has led to a decline in the overall number of students studying abroad, but not among Vietnamese students! Due to the stability of Vietnam’s economic and political system the number of Vietnamese students going abroad to study increased by about 30% since 2009. According to the latest UNESCO study abroad data, a total number of 70,328 students are currently studying abroad for a tertiary degree. Although the US and Australia are market leaders, countries in Europe and Asia have been gaining ground as a result of increased recruitment acitivities in Vietnam.

Role of parents in the decision-making
While both parents and students are involved in the decision-making process, parents – as providers of financial support - tend be more influential in the choice of country; students, however, are more influential in the choice of institution and subject. Successful recruitment in Vietnam is about convincing parents.

Whilst we reach parents through our various online campaigns, we invest a significant amount of advertising dollars into key business/news magazines and newspapers to invite them and their families to the fair. We have also forged extensive media partnerships with key media organisations in each market to reach parents who fall into the A & B socio economic groups.

When you take all levels of educations into account, Vietnam sends over 125,000 students abroad anually, a record-breaking annual increase of 15%. According to the 2017 Open Doors report, Vietnamese students accounted for 8.7% (7,656 students) of the almost 90,000 students enrolled at community colleges across the US.

Recruiting Vietnamese High School Leavers
Owing to relatively low costs, open admission policies, good transfer opportunities and aggressive recruiting on behalf of institutions, there is an incredibly strong demand in Vietnam for high school completion programmes, notably in the US. High school completion programs are offered by community colleges and allow students to achieve two goals: earn a US high school diploma and an associate degree in two years.

Vietnamese Education System
Basic (i.e. junior) secondary education ( trung hoc co so ) lasts for 4 ye ars and is intended for children aged 11 - 15. Pupils can move on to long - term vocational training courses of 1 to 3 years in length, at vocational training schools. The Bang Tot Nghiep Nge certificate allows students to enter the labour market as educated workers.  

Admission to upper secondary education requires that pupils pass an entrance examination. General secondary education ( trung hoc pho thong , also called ‘upper secondary education’) lasts for 3 years and is intended for children aged 15 - 18. Student s who complete this general education programme are awarded the Bang Tot Nghiep Pho Thong Trung Hoc (Certificate of secondary school graduation). Until around 1997 this certificate was called the Bang Tu Tai or Baccalaureate. The certificate grants admission to higher education in Vietnam.

Higher Education in Vietnam
Higher education is provided by universities, colleges and academic research institutes. Vietnam has various types of universities: open universities, technical universities, agricultural universities, medical universities and universities of economics. In 2013, Vietnam had 376 higher education institutions: 150 universities ( Truong dai hoc ) and 226 junior colleges ( Truong cao dang ).

Currently bachelor’s programs usually have a nominal du ration of 4 years, and award the Bang Tot Nghiep dai hoc (University Graduation Certificate). After completing a bachelor’s programme, students can take an entrance examination and continue on to a 2 - year master’s programme. Only students who completed their Bachelor full - time are eligible. The certificate awarded is a master's degree ( Bang Thac si ).
