The collaboration between BUV and CEFALT aims to introduce innovative programs, facilitate knowledge exchange, and improve learning opportunities for students, educators, and professionals in Ho Chi Minh City and the surrounding areas.

The signing ceremony of the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was performed by Prof. Rick Bennett – BUV Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Vice-President, and Mr. Mai Anh Thai – CEFALT Director

In May 2024, the British University Vietnam (BUV) and the Centre for Foreign Affairs and Languages Training (CEFALT) of Vietnam’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs have joined forces in an alliance to enhance language education and lifelong learning in Ho Chi Minh City.

The collaboration, sealed with a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed by Prof. Rick Bennett – BUV Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Vice President and Mr. Mai Anh Thai – CEFALT Director, aims to elevate language teaching standards and foster continuous learning opportunities. The signing ceremony, graced by Ms. Emily Hamblin – the British Consul General in Ho Chi Minh City, and Mr. Tran Phuoc Anh – Director General of the HCMC Department of Foreign Affairs, marked significant a milestone in this endeavour.

This partnership focuses on enhancing foreign language training and English education through innovative teacher training programs and exchange initiatives. The partnership will also spearhead joint research and development initiatives to improve educational approaches, including modern teaching methods and the incorporation of AI into education.

Notably, BUV’s School of Pathways, English and Lifelong Learning (SPELL) and CEFALT will jointly develop the BUV-HCMC Lifelong Learning Centre at CEFALT to promote British education, exchange knowledge between BUV and partners, organisations, and businesses in Ho Chi Minh City.

Ms. Emily Hamblin – the British Consul General in Ho Chi Minh City speaking at the meeting

Witnessing the meaningful milestone, Ms. Emily Hamblin – the British Consul General in Ho Chi Minh City stated: “BUV, known as the premium UK education hub in Vietnam, has been a beacon of British education excellence in Vietnam and since 2008, BUV has continually demonstrated its commitment to providing world-class education and fostering international partnerships. Likewise, CEFALT’s dedication to enhancing language proficiency and professional skills aligns perfectly with BUV’s vision for holistic education”.

Ms. Emily Hamblin expressed a strong belief that the promotion of training programs for educators, staff, and professionals in English language proficiency and essential skills is about more than just improving individual capabilities; it is also about uplifting Vietnam’s capacity in human workforce development, empowering communities, driving innovation, and fostering lifelong learning.

Representatives from BUV and CEFALT at the MOU signing ceremony

Prof. Dr. Raymond Gordon – BUV Vice-Chancellor and President – said: “BUV and CEFALT are committed to enhancing the quality of the workforce by implementing comprehensive train-the-trainer programs, ensuring that educators are well-equipped to inspire and educate future generations. This partnership embodies our shared vision of fostering a vibrant, knowledgeable, and skilled community”.

Mr. Mai Anh Thai – CEFALT Director – shared: “The collaboration between BUV and CEFALT extends beyond academic pursuits. Together, we envision the establishment of the BUV-HCMC Lifelong Learning Center at CEFALT, a testament to our commitment to promoting the British education system and fostering knowledge exchange within the vibrant landscape of Ho Chi Minh City.”

The collaboration between BUV and CEFALT aims to introduce innovative programs, facilitate knowledge exchange, and improve learning opportunities for students, educators, and professionals in Ho Chi Minh City and the surrounding areas. This initiative is the latest effort by BUV, a trusted partner of both the Vietnamese and UK governments, to bridge the nations and connect people and cultures through education, as it has done for the past 15 years.
