Vietnam Study Hub opens

19 Jul 2021

A new study hub located in Ho Chi Minh City will open its doors soon to support Vietnamese students beginning their studies online while COVID border restrictions remain in place.

Initiated by UP Education, University of Auckland and LightPath, the Vietnam Study Hub has been designed to provide students studying online with a dedicated place to meet with their peers, study together, and get learning and career support, all at no extra cost.

With a commitment to the enhancement of the wellbeing of all students, both onshore and offshore, Craig Jones, CEO of University Partnerships at UP Education, says the study hub is a responsive solution for both students and institutions.

“Throughout the pandemic, UP Education has continued to enrol cohorts of international students online, ensuring our students are well supported on their path to their desired university in New Zealand or Australia.”

“We are deeply committed to providing support and a sense of community for all of our students, whether they are studying onshore or online. Student-centric services like the Vietnam Study Hub are a great example of how this can be achieved, says Craig Jones.

The Vietnam Study Hub includes:

  • Study spaces and high-speed internet
  • A flexible space for students to use to study independently or to work on assignments in small groups.
  • A ‘hot desk’ space for students to use for up to 3 days per week.
  • The opportunity to study alongside other pathway students.
  • Social engagement with other students studying a similar course.

Personalised support and guidance

  • 3 hours a week of study workshops and individual support sessions.
  • Tutors from Summa Education, one of the top tutoring providers in Ho Chi Minh City, will be available at scheduled times to provide students with in-person or online learning support.

Career counselling and guidance by trained career consultants

  • 30 minutes a fortnight with a dedicated career guidance consultant trained by Song An to discuss progress, career planning and progression.
  • Regular coffee talks with Australian and New Zealand alumni to chat about student life.

Pre-departure planning sessions

  • A one-day connection and orientation programme at the end of the course.
