The University of London inked an agreement with several large enterprises in Vietnam on Tuesday to offer its students all around the globe a wide range of internship opportunities across a diverse set of industries in Vietnam.

The event is part of the “Global Internship” program under the auspices of British University Vietnam (BUV).

The University of London, BUV and their partners in Vietnam, including Vietnam Airlines, Grant Thornton, CBRE, VPBank and Galaxy Communications, will support students of the University of London from countries around the world, including Vietnam, to intern at enterprises in Vietnam through a cooperative training program with BUV.

This is a chance for the students to accumulate experience of working in a practical and professional environment. For the companies, the program enables them to seek, challenge and employ professionally trained young talent.

BUV is the only unit authorized by the University of London to manage the students during their three-month full-time internship program that starts in summer. They will take part in soft skills training courses and networking events held by prestigious organizations like the American Chamber of Commerce (Amcham) and the British Business Group Vietnam (BBGV), and exchange programs with BUV’s students.

Adrian Smith, Chancellor at the University of London, said: “This internship program will offer international students opportunities to study and intern in the working environment of a fast growing country like Vietnam. This is also a remarkable milestone in the cooperation between the University of London, BUV and Vietnamese enterprises, contributing to deepening the relationship between Vietnam and the UK.”

According to BUV President Raymond Gordon, the cooperation will bring in practical benefits for the students, including BUV students that obtain the University of London’s degrees, and wider access to workforces of high quality for the enterprises, thus contributing to their development.

Nguyen Chi Trung, general director of Grant Thornton Vietnam, one of the participants in the Global Internship program, said such programs should be promoted in Vietnam to improve the country’s education quality. The fast growing economy of Vietnam is ideal for talent to develop themselves and boost their skills.
