• Once again, the graduation projects of Graphic Design students at Van Lang University are present at the graduation project exhibition of students of Communication & Industrial Design in HanDong University, Korea.

  • On October 24th 2018, Van Lang university has announced the launching event of “Training courses and workshops on Advanced research methodology and writing skills for publication of scientific research outcomes on international conference and journals”, which is in the UK-Vietnam educational partnership program, 2018-2019.

  • On 16th November 2018, Van Lang University welcomed representatives of Finnish Embassy from Vietnam and Singapore to visit the Finnish Educational Centre’s class.

  • (VLU, 09/5/2021)- “I choose to study at Van Lang and hope that I can do everything in the best way and turn Van Lang into another hometown of mine,” said ChitAnong Bouasavanh, a student of Course 26, Fashion Design.

    Currently, Van Lang University has 19 international students from Laos and Cambodia. For each international student, deciding to choose and send their dream at Van Lang University is both an opportunity and a challenge.

    Most Lao students know about Van Lang University through the introduction of the Lao Embassy and this division makes them feel very lucky. The students gathered in the Lao Students’ Dormitory and spent their time studying Vietnamese before studying the specialize subject at Van Lang University. Therefore, even though they study in a new environment, they always consider each other like family, keep close relationships as well as support each other in life.

    5On April 13rd, 2021, students from Laos and Cambodia celebrated Bunpimay at Van Lang University.

    ChitAnong Bouasavanh, a student of Fashion Design, is a friendly guy and is called by his friends with the nickname Pep. He told: "Van Lang is not the first place I think of, but I am passionate about Fashion Design and like creativity, so Van Lang has kept me".


    Before studying at VLU, Pep studied another major and also spent time working as a model. He used to propose community projects about designing for natural products in the rural areas of Laos with export opportunities. Pep hopes that Lao students at Van Lang University will be the first generation to learn and instruct junior students in Laos and Cambodia in the next courses.

    Soukhavong Souliphone, a student of Course 25 of the Faculty of Finance and Banking, is a charming MC in the Bunpimay Traditional New Year festival which held at Van Lang University in 2021. She said, “Deciding to study in Vietnam is my goal for a long time and my parents were all supportive. Partly I want to learn Vietnamese and have better job opportunities in the future. Although I have been studying Vietnamese since I was in Laos, when I studied with Vietnamese students at Van Lang University, my communication skills were improved a lot."

    3Soukhavong Souliphone is a MC to share Lao culture with Vietnamese students.

    The early days in Vietnam or the lecture halls of Van Lang University were unfamiliar to Lao students, but this place has similar features to their homeland: “Vietnamese and Lao people have a lot similarities, so we are also more comfortable”.Students shared that Van Lang University liked a miniature Vietnam with "crowded with many people, motorbikes, food stalls and delicious milk tea", and "only studying for one semester, the number of friends also increased rapidly.”

    One of the difficulties that Lao students face in the process of living and studying at VLU is communication and teamwork. Currently, they can communicate Vietnamese basically, but “it is not enough for specialized content in the subject".

    Therefore, they often encounter challenging situations. When presenting essays or projects, they always make mistakes in expressions, misunderstanding topics, or they sometimes cannot absorb knowledge in the class so they can only wait for the end of the lesson to ask the teacher or friends to explain again. However, they are not discouraged, they believe this thing as a motivation to push themselves to quickly adapt and integrate.

    ChitAnong Bouasavanh said, “When we proposed to open a Vietnamese language class for Lao students, Van Lang University was very interested and supported. In addition, the lecturers have many teaching methods that I really like. They don't put a lot of emphasis on attendance, but always they know how to make me go to theirclass.”

    Besides the enthusiastic support from VLU and the lecturers, the students from Laos and Cambodia also support each other. ChitAnong Bouasavanh is a member of the self-managed group. With good ability in language, he always actively studies the specialized information of other students to help his friends explain.

    lao “Living in Vietnam for nearly 3 years, this is the first time I have celebrated Tet with Vietnamese students”, Thoummavong Oulayvanh shared

    Talking about future plans, Thoummavong Oulayvanh, a student of Course 26 in Oriental Studies, shared: “I have many plans for the future, but firstly I want to study well. In the next 1-2 years, I hope to have the opportunity to study in Korea according to the training program of Van Lang University". There are some other people who want to complete the training program well to continue to study in hinger education. And ChitAnong Bouasavanh said, "I hope that my knowledge can bring value as well as have a positive impact on the community."

My students are engaged and passionate about learning. I have generous and diligent colleagues, and a good working environment so I feel that VLU is not just a university, but an academic community”. For him, it is meaningful when he helps students confidently acquire knowledge about languages and cultures and witness their progress.


    For more than 3 years living in Vietnam, Ms. Katharine Collins has taught English to adults at a language school. After that, she came to VLU to find a new and more interesting challenge. Now, she has enthusiastic colleagues and extremely active students. She participated in orientation sessions for students of courses 23, 24, 25 and met new students of class 26, leaving an impression on students with her sharing on many effective foreign language learning methods. She recalled: “It was my first time speaking in front of such a large audience and, although it was slightly out of my comfort zone, the students were amazing and cheered me on! It showed just how supportive and encouraging the environment here at VLU is”.


    Another colleague at the Faculty of Foreign Languages, Mr. Jonathan Alcantara Illana also reminisced about the first day he came to VLU: “On March 26th of 2020 when I walked in the halls of Campus 1 to personally hand-in my documents to apply and met with Dr. Phan The Hung, Dean of the Faculty of Foreign Languages. He had an interview and talked with me that day. After exactly three months, I signed my contract here and the joy is still overflowing.”

    The first semester of 2020 marks his official work as a Lecturer, and so far he has not stopped accepting many changes to share with students his experience and knowledge about Language Education. Seeing students brave every second, every minute to speak English is a joy which motivates him to keep trying harder with this job.

    He proudly affirms: “Van Lang University is a gift- truly a home. I am Jonathan Alcantara Illana, a Filipino. I am home at Van Lang University.”

And each individual also contributed "own colors" to "colorful picture" of Van Lang University.
