Nine students of the Oriental Studies program at Van Lang University went on the 2021 exchange programs in South Korea

(VLU25/8/2021– On 11 and 18 August 2021, the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities at Van Lang University had seen nine students go on the exchange programs in Kwangju University, Kwangwoon University and Busan University of Foreign Studies (South Korea).

According to the MoU signed with Gwangju University, Kwangwoon University, and Busan University of Foreign Studies in 2018, Van Lang University had periodically recruited and assisted the Oriental Studies students (with a specialization in Korean Studies) to study one to two years at Korean partner institutions.

In 2018, the first four VLU students completed the one-year exchange program at Gwangju University. In 2019, six brightest students were selected; four went to Gwangju University and two to NamSeoul University.

In 2021, the Faculty of Social Sciences and Humanities continued to recruit and sent nine Oriental Studies students of course 25 to attend exchange programs at Korean partner institutions within one year, including:

  • Ha Binh Ngoc Long, Ho Phan Kim Ngan, Pham Tran Trang Nhi, Tran Le Yen Vy, Pham Ngoc Bich, Bui Thi Thuyet would attend the exchange program at Busan University of Foreign Studies.
  • Le Thi Ha Giang, Nguyen Thuy Duyen went on the exchange program at Gwangju University.
  • Nguyen Ho Thanh Ngan exchanged to Kwangwoon University.

These students satisfied the academic requirements (based on the accumulated grade point average), actively participated in extra-curricular activities, and desired to exchange abroad.

Among the nine selected students to go on the exchange programs in South Korea, Le Thi Ha Giang – Oriental Studies student of course 25, said: “My flight departed on 18 August. It was my first time visiting South Korea, and amidst the pandemic outbreak, I was very anxious. However, VLU lecturers helped me with all the processes from arrival or transfer to the quarantine areas. Although I was initially confused, I was blissful that finally, I could make my dream to go on an exchange program in South Korea come true.”

Before my flight to the land of Kimchi, the lecturers of the Faculty of Social Sciences and humanities helped to arrange almost everything, from flight booking to paperwork and everything I needed to know when studying and living in South Korea. It will be difficult when you arrive in a new country, but I will try my best to achieve good performance and live up to my lecturers, friends, and family’s trust and hope.

According to the agreements with Gwangju University, Nam Seoul University, Kwangwoon University, and Busan University of Foreign Studies, Van Lang University regularly recruits and assists Oriental Studies students in taking one or two-year exchange programs at Korean partner universities. One-year exchange students will receive full tuition fees waiver; they are only accountable for living costs. Two-year exchange students will benefit 50% tuition fees waiver and free accommodation services at the dormitory. Exchange students are provided with a place at the partner university’s dormitory.
