They can choose one of UEF’s international partner universities of different countries and continents worldwide for their experience. After an international semester, students will have credits transferred at UEF which are accredited in all subjects at partner universities.

Articulation program

Students completing stage 1 at UEF have chances to study abroad at partner universities so that they can complete stage 2 and gain degree abroad. It is the preeminence of this program that helps students save a considerable amount of money and be equipped with knowledge and skills in Vietnam before study trip. Besides, students can also receive dual degrees when enrolling this program.

Joint program

A Bachelor or Master degree in foreign countries is a dream of many parents - students. The Joint program is a form of studying one foreign country’s program at Vietnam. The advantage of this program is that students do not have to travel abroad with the benefit of accessing to an international training course, receiving an equivalent and qualified degree at UEF with a reasonable fund. Besides, Joint program would guarantee with parents about the management and caring for students. Along with that, this program offers a chance for postgraduates to follow the international program and job opportunities in Vietnam.
