The memorandum of understanding expands opportunities for TU students to experience Vietnam through short-term and semester-long programs at Hanoi University. It also allows the universities to explore international joint degree programs in business and technology-related areas.

“This is an exciting opportunity for TU,” said Vivian Wang, vice provost for global engagement. “It opens exciting opportunities for our students to study at one of the top institutions in Vietnam and attracts top-notch international talent to Tulsa.”

The MOU was signed during the first US-Vietnam Education Forum, organized by ETS and the Vietnamese Ministry of Education and Training (MOET). Hanoi University President Nguyen Van Tao signed the agreement on behalf of his institution. Leadership from the Vietnamese MOET, ETS and USAID also participated in the signing.

Hanoi University is a comprehensive public institution formed in 1959. It is known for its well-established English-medium international curriculums and academic excellence in foreign language studies and applied sciences programs. Hanoi University attracts more than 700 international students from around the world with an overall enrollment of 12,000. Vietnam is currently the sixth largest source of foreign students to the United States.
