RMIT University Vietnam has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Vietnam National University Hanoi (VNU-Hanoi), with the two to cooperate in establishing closer links in a number of areas.
These include enhancing academic quality and leadership in Vietnam, conducting collaborative research projects, exchanging faculty, researchers, and other research and administrative staff, exchanging PhD supervisors and PhD students, conducting lectures and organizing symposia and conferences, developing digital education practices, and promoting other academic cooperation as mutually agreed.
RMIT Vietnam President, Professor Gael McDonald, said she felt excited and optimist about the possibilities for cooperation.
She emphasized that in the era of globalization and interdependence, cooperative partnerships with other educational institutions of academic excellence are not an option but a necessity.
“Our vision for continued excellence is to invest even more resources to enhance knowledge and foster wide-ranging research efforts to meet the new challenges in the globalization era, maximizing new opportunities for the benefit of the people of Vietnam and beyond,” she said.
“Therefore, the signing of this MoU between our two universities symbolizes a partnership that we believe will lead to many new joint research and training initiatives, producing new synergies and academic value for both RMIT Vietnam and VNU-Hanoi in the years ahead.”
Professor Nguyen Hoang Hai, Vice President of VNU-Hanoi, said he appreciated the fruitful partnership already established between VNU-Hanoi and RMIT Vietnam, especially with the founding of the VNU Institute for Education Quality Assurance.
He also believes that the MoU will open up new opportunities for cooperation and suggested that both sides collaborate on education and research projects as well as on applying information technology in education and management.
During the signing ceremony, Professor Nguyen urged both sides to work together immediately to build up high-quality education and research programs.
The MoU will be effective for a period of five years from the date of signing.
