HCMC – Education New Zealand, a government agency for education promotion, has announced 40 short full-ride scholarships ranging from a few weeks to three months for Vietnamese learners, totalling over VND500 million.
The program includes 20 scholarships in Digital and Collaborative Teaching and Learning for Vietnamese teachers, university lecturers and educators, in addition to 20 scholarships in Disruptive Technologies available for entrepreneurs and managers.
Applicants who pass the screening round will be enrolled in a micro-credential course on an online platform, which will be developed by academyEX, a renowned postgraduate education institute in New Zealand.
Unlike traditional short courses, each micro-credential in this program is accredited by the New Zealand Qualification Authority and, if eligible, can be used to redeem credits for learners in many other graduate programs.
Students will be provided with learning materials, lectures and assignments on the platform, in addition to having online interactive sessions with instructors and fellows studying in New Zealand.
The 15-week Digital and Collaborative Teaching and Learning Micro-credential course begins on August 7 and lasts until November 19, whereas the 10-week Disruptive Technology Micro-credential course takes place between September 11 and November 19.
