“Strengthening the University’s links with our peers will deepen our collaboration with Vietnam.”
Dr Gallagher will visit Hanoi University of Science and Technology (HUST); Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology (HCMUT); University of Economics Ho Chi Minh City – International School of Business; National Economics University; Vietnam National University Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City; and Vietnam National University - – University of Economics and Business.
Dr Gallagher will sign two new articulation agreements during her visit to Vietnam.

It enables Australian students to study and collaborate with partner universities in Vietnam including Can Tho University, Ho Chi Minh International University, HUST, HCMUT, and Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology and Education (HCMUTE),
“By studying in Vietnam our NCP students are developing a global perspective in their academic field while increasing their knowledge of the Indo-Pacific region,” said Dr Gallagher.
“Students will broaden their knowledge of Vietnam by connecting with local industry and culture. This will provide them with an unprecedented learning experience.
“The NCP Sustainable Water Management study tour provides a unique opportunity for our engineering students, from one of the driest regions in the world, to exchange intercultural perspectives from peers from one of the wettest regions of the world, on how to use water sustainably.”
The NCP study tour also includes cultural learning with field trips to some of the most stunning UNESCO Heritage listed tourist destinations that Vietnam has to offer
