Frequently asked questions

For student exchange on a reciprocal basis (1 to 1) in which students continue to pay the tuition fee for the home university, each university has a certain quota for the number of students that can be exchanged per mutual agreement between VinUni and partner university. For other study abroad programs, the capped number of students is regulated by the host universities or the external funding organizations.

Students may apply to both the student exchange program and the integrated degree program, but only one offer will be made at any given time. There are two separate application processes for these two programs.

Students can select up to 3 choices for their student exchange programs. The student exchange applications will go through an internal review process by a VinUni Review Committee who will make the decision on the application and selection process.

VinUni students who would like to apply for the student exchange program on a reciprocal basis (1 to 1) will follow the application process set by the Global Exchange Office at VinUni and support their applications to the Office as indicated in the Apply Now session.

If you would like to study at a university that does not have an exchange agreement with VinUni, you can choose to personally plan and finance your studies abroad. It will be your responsibility to apply to the university abroad as well as to ensure that all the practical matters are taken care of. Students will still need to apply for pre-approval of credit transfer to the Office of University Registrar/Program Director before your departure to study at the host institution.

 

The academic transcript is expected to be sent by the host university to VinUni’s Office of Registrar. Students can receive the academic transcript through SIS. All inquiries and applications regarding credit transfer should be submitted to the Registrar.

Students in science and technology and related fields in science and technology will have the opportunity to apply for the scholarship under Vingroup Scholarship Program while they study abroad at a partner school for the integrated Bachelor’s – Master’s Programs. Vingroup Science and Technology Scholarship is a full scholarship that covers all expenses: tuition fees, living expenses, air tickets, insurance, visa costs, etc. Read more about information of Vingroup Scholarship Program: https://scholarships.vinuni.edu.vn/.

Other official financial support, if any, will be announced when it is available.

While you are on a reciprocal exchange program, you will continue to pay the tuition fee at VinUniversity and not to the host universities. However, you may need to pay some administration fees based on requirements set by partner university. You will also be responsible for other related expenses such as visa, flight, accommodation, insurance, living expenses, etc.

If you are not accepted to your first-choice university, we will try to place you in your second or third preference. Before applying for a program, it is important to do thorough research on the preferred university. The number of exchange slots on reciprocal basis is limited and application is competitive so please select a wide range of opportunities to increase your chance of being accepted for an exchange program.

Most countries require international students to obtain a valid student visa. For further information, please check the specific requirements of your chosen university and host country. The Global Exchange Office at VinUni will also support you as needed when you apply for the visa for the exchange program.

For the outbound student exchange program, if your application is successful, VinUni will nominate you to the host institution and you may be required to submit a separate application requested by the host institution. The partner university reviews the nominations, makes the final decision, and issues the Letter of Acceptance to the successful students.

You need to check out the course information from the websites of the host institutions before deciding the exchange choices, to ensure that there are suitable courses for you to take. You will also need to discuss the study plan with the faculty advisor and/or the Program Director. This advisory process is important to ensure that students are taking appropriate courses, in the sense that you fulfil the graduation requirements. It would be useful for students to review their major program requirements before seeking advice.

International students attending student exchange program on a reciprocal basis will pay the tuition fee at your home university and not to VinUni. Students will need to pay for visa, travel, insurance and living expenses while studying at VinUni.

You can choose to live in VinUni dormitories, a truly co-living, co-working, and co-learning environment. VinUniversity campus is located at Vinhomes Ocean Park, Gia Lam, Ha Noi. Our campus accommodation is not guaranteed and is treated on a first come, first served basis for exchange students. Yet, you can always rent accommodation off campus just within walking distance at Vinhomes Apartment Buildings. You can find more information about Vinhomes serviced apartments at this link: Vinhomes Serviced Residences.

You should prepare the most essential items because it is very easy to buy more if needed. For example:

– Clothes, socks, shoes, slippers, toiletries, brushes, towels, swimwear, sport shoes.

– Basic medicine: fever-reducer, urgo tape, herb oil and stomachache medicine.

– Souvenirs with sentimental value can be kept in the room, family picture for instance.

– Minimal stationery: pens, notebooks … Stationery can be purchased at grocery stores

– Laptop

There are three intakes per year, Fall (September – February), Summer (July – August) and Spring (February – June).

While the Student Exchange Program on reciprocal basis is open to students from our partner universities only, students from other universities can join the Study Away/ Short Course Programs to study at VinUni.

Inbound exchange students will work with student exchange office at your home university to apply for the visa to Vietnam. VinUni will provide you with necessary supporting documents and provide assistance as needed.
