Accordingly, BUV will continue to grow its scholarship programmes and give talented young Vietnamese people the opportunity to realize their education dream and go on to contribute to Vietnam’s future. The talent of BUV’s graduates and their capacity to positively impact the future is BUV’s key contribution to Vietnam.”
BUV is the first international university in Vietnam to offer a bachelor’s degree directly from the prestigious University of London and Staffordshire University. BUV’s training programmes and lecturers are regularly assessed by both universities to ensure that they meet the exacting standards, which are governed by the UK Government and endorsed by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) who grants permission for degrees to be offered and ensures that the quality of the institutions and their awards are of the highest level.
