The UBD - FPT Global Centre, specializing in English training, opened recently in Da Nang under a collaborative effort between FPT Education and Universiti Brunei Darussalam (UBD).

The center is one of two major collaborative training projects between the two parties. The opening ceremony was attended by Brunei’s Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah and representatives from the Da Nang City People’s Committee.

Committee Chairman Huynh Duc Tho said the event marks a new step forward in cooperation between Vietnam and Brunei, to which Da Nang is honored to contribute. He added that the city always welcomes international investors as well as cooperation projects between Vietnam and APEC economies in general and ASEAN in particular, including Brunei.

As a center of economics, culture, and social affairs in central Vietnam and a tourism city, he added, Da Nang needs training for a professional foreign-language workforce, especially in English. The UBD - FPT English Centre is therefore expected to help many local residents learn English through high quality training programs for students, cadres, and civil servants.

Da Nang is committed to creating the best conditions for Brunei officials and teachers to live and work in the city as well as to supporting other development projects in the future.

In the Top 200 universities in Asia and the Top 50 in the world, UBD is recognized for its professional, high quality curriculum and teaching staff by many leading universities in the world.

It will send teachers to the center and be responsible for the development of the curriculum and faculty members. FPT Education, meanwhile, committed to creating a truly international campus environment with advanced facilities, giving students the opportunity to learn English in a professional manner.

The first course will begin tomorrow, November 14.

FPT Education and UBD began official cooperation activities in July 2013. Hundreds of students from Brunei have come to Vietnam for short-term studies and internships, making Brunei one of the largest student communities at FPT.
