Swinburne continues expansion in Vietnam
Swinburne continues its expansion in Vietnam, soon opening in Da Nang
- Swinburne is opening its third teaching site in Vietnam, in the city of Da Nang
- In partnership with education provider FPT University, the course offerings are strongly aligned with providing employment outcomes in the technology and ICT sectors
- Students will receive a truly global education, having access to Swinburne Melbourne educational resources
Swinburne University of Technology is expanding its education offering in Vietnam opening a third teaching site in Da Nang in September 2022.
Opening in the fifth largest city located on the coast of central Vietnam stems from a mutual desire between Swinburne and long-standing partner FPT University to provide a ‘new generation’ university experience for globally aware learners and graduates who use technology to create a better world.
Strong global partnerships and educational opportunities
Courses offered at Swinburne Vietnam’s Da Nang teaching site will include the Bachelor of Business, Bachelor of Information and Communication Technology, and Bachelor of Computer Science.
As one of the largest Information Communication Technology companies in Vietnam’s private sector, FPT Corporation has over 30,000 employees focused on three core business sectors; technology, telecommunications and education. FPT operates in all cities and provinces in Vietnam and has 48 offices abroad – providing significant employment opportunities for graduates.
Swinburne Pro Vice-Chancellor of Global Engagement Dr Douglas Proctor says that strong demand is expected for the new courses being offered in Da Nang.
“We are thrilled to continue our partnership with FPT University and prepare adaptive learners for careers of the future, who can make their mark in Vietnam and the broader global community,” Dr Proctor says.
“Swinburne is committed to further developing our global network of collaborative teaching partnerships and increasing the movement of students between Swinburne’s teaching locations.”
Key benefits of this partnership for students include access to the Swinburne Online Learning Management System which allows lecturers to deliver digital educational tools such as video content, discussion boards, quizzes and gamification.
Swinburne Melbourne lecturers are also able to provide a real-time guest presentation to Swinburne Vietnam cohorts, providing valuable access to an international learning experience.
Swinburne’s history in Vietnam
Da Nang has quickly come onboard since the Swinburne Vietnam partnership saw the official opening of its first teaching site in Hanoi on 1 October 2019.
Swinburne has a long history of engagement in Vietnam and delivered its first international education program over 25 years ago; a bold achievement considering the university is only 30 years young.
Swinburne also has a history of undertaking collaborative activities such as joint research and PhD scholarships with the Vietnamese government.
