British Council

Alongside Going Global 2017, Prof Dr Bui Van Ga attended a bilateral meeting with Dr Christopher Rodrigues CBE, Chair of the British Council, Dame Julia Goodfellow, President, UK Universities (UUK), and Dr Vivienne Stern, Director of the International unit of UUK (UUKi).

In the meeting they discussed the education reform agenda in Vietnam in the areas of internationalisation of higher education, investment in innovation, research and STEM to meet the resources need in Industry 4.0, secondary education reform, scholarships, teacher training and English. 

The British Council also committed to continue the support for Vietnam in the implementation of the National Qualification Framework, research and innovation, policy dialogues between Vietnam and the UK, and higher education partnerships.

Following on from the bilateral meeting and the Joint Statement signed between the British Council, Vietnamese Ministry of Education and Training, and UUKi in London in 2015, it is promising to see more and more partnerships and joint activities between the UK and Vietnam in 2017 and 2018.
