Local university gains AUN-QA accreditation
The University of Science of the Vietnam National University, Hanoi (VNUH) has met criteria for university quality assessment at institutional level under the ASEAN University Network – Quality Assurance’s (AUN-QA).
The university is the first educational institution in Southeast Asia to apply the assessment system on an experimental basis.
The AUN-QA network is a group of chief quality officers appointed by the AUN’s member universities as the focal point for coordinating to harmonise educational standards and seeking continuous improvement of academic quality of ASEAN universities.
The evaluation is based on 25 criteria and 111 norms, including some relatively new assessment areas to universities in Vietnam such as intellectual property, risk management, connecting and community service.
The VNUH has been a pioneer in the field of quality assessment for international standard training programmes.
In 2009, the IT bachelor programme of the VNUH’s University of Engineering and Technology became the AUN’s sixth graduate programme to earn recognition under the quality assurance system.
