Two groups of Western Australian students are currently in Vietnam for short-term study through the Australian Government’s New Colombo Plan.

15 undergraduate students from Edith Cowan University are undertaking Environmental Studies at the Thai Nguyen University International School and University of Agriculture and Forestry. And 11 undergraduate students from the University of Western Australia are studying Agricultural Economics at the Vietnam National University of Agriculture. Students will attend lectures and conduct site visits for assessment projects. They will also participate in a number of cultural and social activities to gain a deeper appreciation of Vietnamese culture and interact with Vietnamese students.

Both programs have grown out of existing institutional partnerships between these universities and reflect the shared research interests and strengths between Western Australia and Vietnam in environmental science and agriculture. The mobility programs follow a successful Education mission to Vietnam in October 2015 led by the Hon. Peter Collier MLC, Western Australian Minister for Education, together with senior representatives from five Western Australian universities.
