“UEF and Centria have introduced the double-degree program since 2019 drawing greater attention and registration of students. However, given the evolving complexities of the Covid-19 pandemic over the past two years, its implementation was procrastinated. Therefore, this signing will give students from UEF and Centria a golden opportunity to study abroad in the “new normal”,” Dr. Do Nguyen Huu Loc delivered his opening remarks.
Dr. Do Huu Nguyen Loc shared his thoughts at the ceremony
Under the cooperation agreement, UEFers majoring in Economics and Business Administration can transfer to Centria to continue their final year after finishing their third year at UEF. Those who complete their study program in Finland will obtain an international Bachelor's degree from Centria. Moreover, the total credits accumulated at Centria will be converted to equivalent ones at UEF for graduation accreditation and UEF Bachelor's degree.
In addition, both universities foster their cooperation relationship in other programs, such as mobility programs, semesters abroad, and international scientific research projects.
