A message from Professor Yi-Chen Lan, Provost, Vietnam campus
To be an ASEAN Hub for Western Sydney University in the region, striving to provide international standards higher education programs through innovative delivery models in a number of key disciplines with emerging technologies.
To hone ASEAN talent through top multinational corporation engagement with practical based learning, foster world-class academics and researchers.
Western Sydney University’s offshore Vietnam campus strives to be a leading institution within the ASEAN Hub delivering programs across the education spectrum. We endeavour to be a university of choice for multinational corporations and large enterprises across the Vietnamese professional community, offering an array of programs and engagement activities attractive to all higher education levels from high school and beyond.
The Western Sydney University and the University of Economics Ho Chi Minh City (UEH) connection sets us apart from the rest as an eminent higher education provider in the region, striving to be a key intellectual driver of the region’s social and economic development. Our Vietnam campus plays a crucial role in providing a highly-skilled, locally and internationally knowledgeable, and talented pool of graduates to meet the strong growth expected for the region and internationally. Furthermore, the Vietnam campus will enhance international reach and reputation through mutually beneficial international partnerships in the region.
The Vietnam campus will be an innovative and enticing learning hub catering for all with face-to-face, interactive and online delivery methods, encompassing both traditional and a highly sought modern learning experience.
Our goal is to develop and expand offshore programs that are meeting market demands in the region and connect with pathway arrangements to enable and facilitate onshore study opportunities for students from the region.
To enhance the learning experience for both WESTERN and UEH students, we will work to provide opportunities for students to expand on their study and career goals by encouraging onshore and offshore study through study abroad programs, industry internships, mobility programs, short study tours and culture emersion initiatives.
The University’s alumni community in the ASEAN region is strong and growing. To further build and strengthen the alumni community in the region, we will provide opportunities to encourage alumni to remain connected to WESTERN, UEH, and fellow alumni through providing engagement, networking, social and learning activities to expand networks, career opportunities and aspirations.
