GenEd Overview

VinUniversity’s General Education Program (GenEd) instills in students the values, competencies, skills, and knowledge required to respond to the uncertain emerging world and to become responsible and inspirational leaders. GenEd program is:

  1. Developed based on the top GenEd programs around the world;
  2. Designed with a seamless approach that gives students the  flexibility necessary to think and work across the disciplines in order to foster innovation; and
  3. Personalized, with an Individual Development Plan (IDP) for each student.

At VinUniversity, the General Education Program is the first home for all students as they embark on a journey of self-discovery. Essentially, GenEd at VinUniversity is a “gateway” between past and future, theory and practice, and local and global.

To competently serve society with heart and mind, GenEd seeks to begin cultivating in each student six identified attributes: Character, Competence, Critical Thinking, Leadership, Entrepreneurship, and National Pride-Global Awareness.
