Students in Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam can now travel across the globe to study their degrees in the United Kingdom at the University of Gloucestershire.
The Cheltenham and Gloucester based university has linked up with the University of Economics and Law (UEL) that is part of the Vietnam National University to deliver bachelor degrees in business based courses.
From November students can register for a programme based at UEL that will the lead into one of the following courses:
- BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance
- BA (Hons) Business and Management Studies
- BA (Hons) International Business
Thomas Geard-Beney a student studying BA (Hons) Accounting and Finance at the University of Gloucestershire recently visited UEL in Vietnam to promote the British University, he believes it is positive for all students. “It gives them a chance to experience our education system and it opens up our eyes to what it’s like outside the UK.”
He also added “It gives you an idea on how nations can develop who are relatively closed off to the outside world with them being communist, they can thrive from other country’s investing in business and infrastructure.”
Students studying in Vietnam will have to take part in the preliminary stage of their studies. If successful they will then be able to register for the second year of the University of Gloucestershire degree which will be taught by UEL staff at their Ho Chi Minh City campus.
Dr Richard O’Doherty, Deputy Vice Chancellor of the University of Gloucestershire said: “We are delighted to be working with such a prestigious institution to deliver our degrees in Vietnam. We hope that by providing our courses in partnership with UEL they will be more accessible to students who might otherwise be unable to study for a UK degree and we look forward to working with UEL to provide a unique and high quality learning experience for these students.”
The entire degree can be completed in just under 4 years.
