    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 sustainable science.

    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!
