On June 2nd, 2022, International School, Vietnam National University, Hanoi (VNU-IS) hosted a meeting with Edith Cowan University (ECU), Australia. Attending the meeting were representatives from ECU (Ms. Nathalie BERGON, International Account Manager); as well as representatives from VNU-IS Office of Research & Partnership Development and Office of Planning & Finance.
The meetings aimed to introduce further about VNU-IS and ECU as well as explore cooperative possibilities between the two institutions. Both sides discussed in-depth issues such as pathway programs, exchange programs, internship programs, etc. as well as scholarship opportunities for VNU-IS students. On top of that, the parties explore the possibilities of organizing some sharing sessions to provide VNU-IS students a better understanding of transfer opportunities to ECU. In 2010, ECU cooperated with VNU-IS and HELP University in a joint Bachelor of Business program. In 2021, ECU signed an articulation letter for VNU-IS’s training programs (International Business; Accounting, Analyzing and Auditing; Management Information System) and invite VNU-IS students to join the online student exchange program “Global Future 2021”.
Located in Western Australia, ECU is one of universities providing the ideal learning environment for students. Since its establishment in 1991, ECU took the opportunity to reshape the way higher education is delivered in a distinctive and inspiring campus environment. ECU courses are developed in consultation with industry, and teaching staff have extensive industry experience and networks. This explains why ECU students can expect work integrated learning placement opportunities, fieldwork, practicums and networking events as part of their studies. This approach has been rewarded with five-star ratings for undergraduate teaching quality over the past 15 years, along with consistently high ratings for overall education experience, skills development, student support and learning resources, as reported in the Good Universities Guide. ECU’s eight schools collectively deliver a diverse range of courses across medical and health sciences, engineering, education, arts and humanities, business and law, nursing and midwifery, science and the Western Australian Academy of Performing Arts. Courses are offered on three campuses – ECU Joondalup and ECU Mount Lawley in metropolitan Perth and ECU South West in Bunbury. ECU has more than 30,000 undergraduate and postgraduate students with more than 6,000 international students, originating from 102 countries.
ECU and VNU-IS will continue their discussion to reach mutual interests in the coming time for their long-term cooperation.
