At the Vietnamese-German University (VGU) in Ho Chi Minh City, students have been able to acquire a German university degree since 2008. On September 8, 2018, the first state university with foreign participation in Vietnam will celebrate its tenth anniversary.

The Vietnamese-German University has developed into one of the largest binational universities with German participation over the past ten years. With the support of the partner universities, the VGU ensures excellent training for its students. It trains the specialists and managers of tomorrow and strengthens the research skills of young Vietnamese junior scientists. In this way, the VGU is not only driving the modernization of Vietnam, but also enriching the international scientific landscape“, Says DAAD President Prof. Margret Wintermantel.

The Vietnamese-German University is the result of an initiative of the Vietnamese Ministry of Education and Training (MoET) and the Hessian Ministry of Science and Art (HMWK). Financed with funds from the BMBF, the DAAD supports the project development with its expertise in transnational education and in the development of binational universities with German participation.

The VGU is one of four state “New Model Universities” in Vietnam that are being set up together with a partner country. In addition to Germany, France, Japan and Great Britain are also involved in this area. The strong research university is structured according to the German model and enables its students to obtain a German degree in engineering, information technology and economics.
A new campus with state-of-the-art laboratory facilities is planned to be built by 2020 as part of a World Bank loan.

The Vietnamese-German University is considered a showcase project and serves as a model for Vietnam and the region. With a teaching and research company of around 1,200 students and around 100 lecturers and employees, the university currently offers eleven practical courses with bachelor's and master's degrees. So far, a total of 700 students have successfully completed their studies at the VGU.

To date, the DAAD has awarded more than 400 scholarships to the best students at the VGU for a stay at the German partner university, financed by funds from the Federal Foreign Office.

To support the VGU, the non-profit consortium association VGU e.V. with more than 30 member universities was founded in the DAAD in February 2009. The consortium contributes to the development of the VGU and to ensuring quality in research and teaching.

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) is the organization of German universities and their students for the internationalization of the science system. It creates access to the best study and research opportunities for students, researchers and teachers by awarding scholarships. It promotes transnational cooperation and partnerships between universities and is the national agency for European university cooperation.

The DAAD thus supports the goals of foreign cultural and educational policy, national science policy and development cooperation. To this end, it maintains a network with over 70 foreign offices and around 450 lectureships worldwide, as well as the international DAAD Academy (iDA).

In 2017, the DAAD, including the EU programs, funded almost 140,000 Germans and foreigners around the world. The budget comes predominantly from federal funds from various ministries, the European Union as well as from companies, organizations and foreign governments.
