In the interview with Thanh Nien newspaper, Dr. Nguyen Cao Tri stated: “Currently, when constructing a university campus, it is not just about building a great study hall with standard study facilities.” He said: “We have to think of both the upcoming period and vision for several decades later when the university campus could enable the students to approach hands-on situations, participate in various extracurricular activities such as sports and especially attract the core elements to develop metropolises like Oxford University or Cambridge University which have the size of a city.”

Therefore, Van Lang Education Group has been shaping educational facilities according to the mentioned philosophy in the previous years. For example, Van Lang University is developing a 300-room hotel meeting international standards to enable the students to practice regularly and acquire practical abilities. This hotel will become the functional training campus to utilize the joint programs between the Faculty of Tourism at VLU and William Angliss Institute (Australia) – a specialized institute for internationally recognized hospitality, tourism, and cuisine programs.

As a result, the establishment of Ha Long Pearl University Metropolis will become the next step to define an advanced university metropolis.

Joy is the core of the study

Oxford International Curriculum established with a unique approach based on the UK’s standard high school programs, including six English courses, Mathematics, Science, Technology, Global Skills Project, English, Health and Social-Emotional Management program. Students in Vietnam had the opportunities to approach an advanced educational mindset at the US Vietnam Talent International School (UTS) – an academic partner of Oxford University. UTS is among the first schools in HCMC to implement this curriculum starting from the AY 2021 – 2022. As a result, the students could learn how to take care of themselves, maintain their mental health and concentration, develop their relationships and community connections, and understand themselves and the world around them. Thanks to all of that, the students could define themselves and become dynamic citizens. Moreover, the students could also strengthen their creativity, social skills, and personal abilities by attending the development, execution, and evaluation of actual projects.
