Dear Valued Partners,

Greetings from Vietnam International Education Development!

On behalf of Vietnam International Education Development (VIED), I would like to express our most sincere gratitude towards your cooperation and great supports to our Vietnamese students.

Last year, the first IHED 2016 event had been successfully organized by VIED - Ministry of Education and Training (MoET) with highlights are the participation of 52 institutions from 11 countries, 10 representatives from foreign Embassies, more than 3000 participants including universities and high schools’ leaders, lecturers and students. The after event survey has shown that 92% were very happy with the event, and more important, with supports from participated universities, over 600 Government-funded PhD and Master candidates had been sent in 2016.

Following the success of IHED 2016, this year VIED-MoET is planning to organize IHED 2017 with main objectives are: (i) introduce Vietnamese Government scholarship schemes; (ii) assist Vietnamese highly qualified candidates to connect with institutions worldwide (including the remaining around 950 Government scholarship awardees still looking for universities to apply); (iii) connect the international universities with Vietnamese partners. Beside, VIED has been assigned by MoET to develop a new project replacing Project 911 (our Government project using state budget to train lecturers of Doctor’s Degree for Vietnamese universities and colleges) with the new approach to increase the importance of joint-training-programs in Vietnam. In such context, your participation, suggestions and cooperation with Vietnamese universities during the events and its side activities would be highly appreciated for the success of the upcoming project.

As thus, via this letter, I would like to officially invite your institution to participate IHED Vietnam 2017 with timeline as follows:

  • Hanoi: 8th April 2017
  • Ho Chi Minh City: 9th April 2017
