Message from the Rector
Societies in Vietnam and in the world are currently witnessing major changes.
Life in a changing society sometimes could make us feel that ivory-tower
learning is rather useless, just like "sailing without a compass". To confront
and tackle this problem, we should have a broad vision. Thus, the academic
programs of the VJU are interdisciplinary programs covering many fields of
social science and natural science, all residing under the overall domain of
Aiming at international standards, VJU has developed academic programs based
on curriculum transferred from Japanese partner universities in combination
with a team of elite professors from Japanese universities, VNU and other
well-known universities. Besides, VJU will nurture lecturers to be capable of
doing research and lecturing at international level.
With strong support from the Governments of Vietnam and Japan, VNU and
Japanese reputable universities, together with a good quality assurance system
and internationally academic environment, VJU will attract scientists to come
to work, study and create a sustainable future.
We call for lecturers who possess high motivation and ambitious dreams to join
VJU and together build an outstanding university in Vietnam, as a standard
model for both Vietnam and Japan!
Thank you and wish you great success ahead!
