Vietnam’s leading property developer Vingroup has officially announced its entry into the field of higher education with the establishment of the new, private, non-profit Vin University (VinUni).

The group announced on March 5 that the new university is expected to be built in Hanoi starting sometime this year and hopes to officially receive applications from students for the first course from 2020.

VinUni will focus on education and training in the three key fields of Business, Technology, and Health Sciences, according to Vingroup, which announced it will also implement strategic cooperation with Ivy League universities in the US such as Cornell and Pennsylvania.

By cooperating with world-leading universities, all training programs at VinUni are aimed at achieving international quality standards. The university is geared towards meeting global ranking and classification standards in higher education such as Quacquarelli Symonds and Times Higher Education.

According to Vingroup, students will be given the best opportunities to study with professors and lecturers from leading prestigious universities, research institutes, and hospitals, as well as access to state-of-the-art education technologies, simulation equipment system, and laboratories.

VinUni will also create the best conditions for students to experience education at international universities and to intern at member companies of Vingroup and other leading companies in the country.

After the success of the inter-level Vinschool model, which the group started in 2012, VinUni will be a private, non-profit university and established under international standards and integrating into the world’s elite models of higher education.

Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc earlier approved the establishment of VinUni. He assigned the Ministry of Education and Training to coordinate with relevant ministries and agencies in appraising the establishment scheme in accordance with the provisions of the laws on investment, construction, and education and training, and related legal provisions. The appraisal results then will be submitted to the Prime Minister for consideration and decision.
