Ms. Alison Anderson stated that the University of the West of Scotland is one of the oldest and most modern universities in Scotland. At its six campuses, UWS enrolls about 15,000 students from 40 countries across all continents. Every year, the University of the West of Scotland provides around 3000-4000 Bachelors and Masters with in-depth professional knowledge and qualifications for the UK’s labour market alone.

The prospects for cooperation between UEF and UWS will definitely open up opportunities for students to study in a training environment conforming to international standards right in Vietnam and to work with foreign lecturers who are experienced in the field of administration, economics & finance, accounting and information technology. In addition, students will be offered opportunities to study at the University of the West of Scotland in the final year of the cooperation programme so that they can acquire knowledge and experience of studying and living in a country with the best education system in the world.
