Education Division at the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Ho Chi Minh City Promotes Studying in Taiwan on Student Recruitment Day
The Vietnamese Ministry of Education and Training, the Ministry of Labor, Invalids, and Social Affairs and the Tuoi Tre News host a Student Counseling Day at Can Tho University each year to help Vietnamese high school students in the Mekong Delta area to make the best choice about where to undertake their tertiary level studies. It has been held each year for more than 20 years and it usually attracts from 15,000 to 20,000 high school students and parents.
As usual, the Education Division at the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in Ho Chi Minh City took part and set up a booth providing information about the wide range of opportunities for studying in Taiwan, and scholarships available. The Education Division staff and assistants handed out more than 12,000 pamphlets written in Vietnamese, giving information about Taiwan’s education system and about studying in Taiwan. They also provided information materials provided by individual educational institutions in Taiwan.
Many students are very impressed by what they’ve heard about the quality of Taiwan’s education and very interested in going there to study. They asked many question about how to lodge applications and scholarship possibilities. This year’s Student Counseling Day was very productive and the local students who took part found it very helpful.
