HANOI, NOVEMBER 22, 2023 – British University Vietnam (BUV) officially introduced new undergraduate programmes awarded by prestigious universities in the UK and announced the 2024 Scholarship Fund, fostering opportunities for local students to engage in an internationalstandard learning environment in Vietnam. 

This reflects BUV’s commitment to reinforce its efforts as a UK Hub for higher education in Vietnam, by expanding the partnership network and study options, providing students with wider access to world-class British education in Vietnam. 

Representatives from BUV, the British Embassy and Ministry of Education and Training announcing BUV’s 2024 scholarship programmes during the press conference

From the academic year 2024 – 2025, British University Vietnam will offer six new undergraduate programmes: BSc (Hons) Business and Management, BSc (Hons) Economics and Management, BSc (Hons) Accounting and Finance, BSc (Hons) Data Science and Artificial Intelligence, BA (Hons) Games Art, BA (Hons) Professional Communication (Business, Design & Strategy) and one new specialism: BA (Hons) Contemporary Creative Practice: Animation. 

Specifically, the programmes of Business and Management, Economics and Management, and Accounting and Finance, awarded by the University of London, will be officially taught at BUV in 2024, providing more study options for students in the fields of economics, business, and finance. The entire curriculum and examinations are designed and graded by the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), a federation member of the University of London and ranked among the top three universities in the UK (according to the University League Tables 2024). Established in 1836, the University of London is one of the oldest and largest universities in the UK, comprising 17 esteemed institutions. 

For the Games Art programme, students will be equipped with professional knowledge of game development tools, learning how to create game prototypes and gaining practical experience. The programme is awarded by Staffordshire University, which is ranked seventh in the world for Game Design and Development and is one of the top 10 UK universities in terms of employment prospects. 

Another programme awarded by Staffordshire University at BUV is Contemporary Creative Practice specialised in Animation, which is designed for those interested in giving life to inanimate objects using 2D, 3D technology, and Stop Motion techniques. 

Awarded by University of Stirling, the BSc (Hons) Data Science and Artificial Intelligence degree focuses on training knowledge and skills related to data technology and data analysis. Intuitive teaching models with a hands-on approach help students know how to develop new processes and technologies and confidently use technology in their professional fields.  

The Professional Communication (Business, Design & Strategy) programme is awarded by Arts University Bournemouth – one of the leading art universities in the UK’s creative industry, which achieved a gold award from TEF and HEFCE for excellent teaching frameworks. Students will learn about practical creative communication methods, combined with research on business strategies and design, to develop comprehensive communication solutions that meet a brand’s marketing goals. This interdisciplinary approach prepares students for creative and business/strategy careers in the communications industry. 

Professor Rick Bennett, BUV Deputy Vice-Chancellor & Vice President shared: “The introduction of these programmes and specialism marks an important step forward for British University Vietnam as we are expanding. This is also our response to the Vietnamese economy and the government’s agenda in the Games, Technology and Business & Communications sectors. The programmes are designed to keep up with market needs, equipping students with essential skills to enter the workforce. We hope that they will open new doors for students, helping young people be confident and ready to become global citizens in today’s world.  

Professor Rick Bennett sharing BUV’s vision for introducing the new programmes

At the press conference, BUV also officially announced the 2024 Scholarship and Financial Aid Fund with a total value of up to 87 billion VND (approximately $3.6 million), contributing to giving talented Vietnamese students more opportunities to pursue premium British undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in an internationally education environment. 

The scholarship fund includes many prestigious scholarship categories with 50-100% tuition fee support such as the British Ambassador’s Scholarship, President’s Scholarship, and Dean’s Scholarship. Notably, the Lion’s Heart Scholarship is awarded to talented young students from disadvantaged backgrounds to help them continue with their studies and strive for future success. 

In addition, BUV also offers Talent Scholarship for students with outstanding achievements in sport, culture, and the arts, as well as Key Partnership Scholarship for excellent students from BUV’s partner high schools, and many other scholarships and financial support packages for outstanding students.

BUV is continuously expanding in all academic and operational areas in order to fulfil its pledge of aiding in the advancement of education in Vietnam. The goal is clearly demonstrated through BUV’s introduction of additional undergraduate programmes from UK universities, expanding collaboration with new universities like Stirling and Arts University Bournemouth, and enhancing study opportunities for local students through the 2024 Scholarship and Financial Aid Fund. Earlier this year, the university announced the plan to expand its fivestar campus in Ecopark with a total investment of 165 million USD.
