Accepting dispatched students from this September

Memorandum with the Vietnam Ministry of Education and Training, International Education Development Bureau

Signing ceremony attended by the Deputy Prime Minister and the Minister of Education and Training.

On February 10th, Waseda University and the International Education Development Bureau of the Vietnam Ministry of Education and Training (VMET) held a signing ceremony at the VMET and concluded a memorandum for academic exchange. From this September, Waseda will begin to accept students dispatched through the doctorate development program of the Vietnamese government. The agreement seeks to promote a cooperative partnership across a variety of aspects including the education of Vietnamese students by Waseda University, the advancement of academic/educational activities between Japan and Vietnam, and the promotion of mutual understanding and friendship between the two countries.

Based on its mission of “co-creation of knowledge in the Asia-Pacific Region,” Waseda University is actively accepting government dispatched students who are part of doctorate development programs conducted by developing countries. Waseda’s activities place particular focus on the Asian Region. In the future, in addition to the acceptance and education of dispatched students, Waseda plans to further deepen the exchange between our university and Vietnam.
