Under the program, Australia will offer scholarships for Vietnamese citizens to study at Australian universities in priority fields of study, deliver Australian alumni professional development activities and grants that support Viet Nam’s development, and implement higher education capacity building activities for Vietnamese university leaders.
Australia’s Aus4Skills program remains highly relevant to supporting Viet Nam’s future human resource development priorities, especially as it navigates the challenges presented by COVID-19, said the Australian Ambassador at the event.
Through these partnerships, Australians and Vietnamese have contributed to Viet Nam’s continued socio-economic development across a wide range of priority sectors, such as governance and economic growth, infrastructure and transport, water and sanitation, education, gender equality, and agriculture and rural development, she added.
During 2016-2021 period, more than 105,000 Vietnamese students have enjoyed benefits from education management, curricular organization and vocational education management which were sponsored by Australia’s Aus4Skills program, according to the Australian Embassy.
