On 10/04/2018, University of London (the second largest university in the United Kingdom) signed a memorandum of cooperation with more than 10 strategic partners in Vietnam within a framework of “International Internship Programmes “, under the auspices of British University Vietnam (British University Vietnam -BUV).

University of London, British University Vietnam (BUV) and more than 10 partners have signed a letter of intent for “International Internship Programmes”, supporting University of London’s students to work and study at companies in Vietnam. Professor Sir Adrian Smith, Fellow of the Royal Society and University of London Vice-Chancellor, and Mr Chris Jeffery – Dean of BUV, attended the ceremony with more than 10 partners including Vietnam Airlines, Deloitte, Grant Thornton, Vietnam Games and VP Bank, along with media and press representatives.

 

As part of the letter, internship opportunities will be available to all University of London students around the world who meet the selection criteria. This is also an opportunity to support Vietnamese enterprises in connecting with highly qualified and skilled international human resources.

University of London students will apply for internships with partner organisations with the support of University of London and BUV. University of London is committed to assisting students with the registration process and preparing students with the necessary skills and papers to enter the interview process. After students receive an acceptance letter, BUV will assist students in the visa process and other activities during their internship in Vietnam. BUV is proud to be the only registered centre to support University of London students in Vietnam.

Students won’t have to pay any registration fees when attending these programmes. Upon completion of the internship, students will receive a certificate of completion from University of London. The internship programme will run every summer, and students will also have the chance to attend soft skills training courses during their internship, as well as networking events with British Business Group Vietnam and other organisations. BUV will provide student services and a ‘buddy system’ with BUV’s students and alumni to support the students who are visiting.

Professor Sir Adrian Smith, Fellow of the Royal Society and University of London Vice-Chancellor commented that “the internship programmes of University of London, with the support of BUV and Vietnamese companies will open up opportunities for our students. Our global student body will have the chance to experience learning and working in a dynamic and developing economy like Vietnam. This is an important step in the cooperation between the University of London and our providers and companies in Vietnam, and will contribute to the development of the relationship between Vietnam and the UK, while also increasing global understanding of the Vietnamese economy. I highly appreciate BUV’s role in promoting these internships and creating a bridge between our university and businesses. I hope this will be the foundation for new developments and opportunities in the future.”

 

Professor Raymond Gordon, General Director of BUV stated that “We believe that this partnership will bring many practical benefits to young Vietnamese students as well as to the development of businesses in accessing talented human resources. This is one of BUV’s efforts to provide an authentic international experience for its students and show our long-term commitment to education in Vietnam. Through engagement with talented British interns BUV’s students will receive a learning experience that will enrich their development and prepare them for work and life as global citizens.”

Mr. Chris Jeffery, Dean of BUV, shared the following: “BUV is proud to be closely involved and working with University of London to support talented students from around the world to study and work in Vietnam.”

Mr Nguyen Chi Trung- CEO and Managing Partner of Grant Thornton attended the signing ceremony to share his expectations: “I think the programme is an activity that should be widely deployed to improve the quality of education in the nation in future. Vietnam, with the strength of a developing economy, will be the driving force that meets the needs of global industry. It is exciting to see these programmes which will give students practical knowledge and experience”.
