Global Affairs Canada’s Trade Commissioner Service (TCS) invites you to the first Virtual Canada – Vietnam Education Collaboration and Networking Event. The objective of the event is to facilitate a better understanding of Vietnam’s current education context, explore available opportunities, and discuss one-on-one with the Vietnamese education sector towards potential collaboration whether student recruitment or academic partnerships.

Vietnam is one of the fastest growing education markets and an important source country for Canadian institutions (1st in Southeast Asia and 3th globally). With a young population, a rapidly growing middle class, and an education system struggling to meet the superior quality demanded by its citizens and businesses, Vietnam exhibits strong growth potential not only for international student recruitment but also for institutional partnerships and corporate training.

As Canada’s education brand is getting stronger in Vietnam, local institutions are increasingly interested in developing linkages with their Canadian counterparts in many areas, including but not limited to transnational program delivery, joint programs, articulation agreements, student and faculty mobility, joint research development, curriculum franchising and development, etc.
