The University of Gloucestershire recently finalised an agreement with the University of Economics and Finance (UEF), Ho Chi Minh City, to teach its academic degrees in Vietnam.
Delivery of the University of Gloucestershire awards will be subject to approval from the Ministry of Education and Training in Vietnam, but if successful it will see local Vietnamese students enrolling for degrees in both Business and Marketing Management and English Language and Linguistics.
Senior colleagues from UEF visited Cheltenham late last month to formally sign the partnership agreement which will launch this collaboration.
Both institutions are looking forward to developing a strategic partnership which will benefit both staff and students across a range of levels and we look forward to welcoming our first students in 2017.
