There are a number of jobs requiring intensive English use such as some following examples:

  • Specialized English teacher (supplementary pedagogical credits are required).
  • Translator and interpreter in the sectors of economics, diplomatic trade, culture, and tourism with in-depth knowledge needed.
  • Foreign Affairs/Offices/ Project Assistant: using English proficiency and specialized knowledge for negotiations and transactions, signing business contracts, monitoring related contracts, making plans and programs to welcome international visitors.
  • Other positions (Communications, Business management assistant, Tourism operator, Project manager, Office administration, Office secretary, etc.) also require professional knowledge and specialized English usage and specialized knowledge.

This training model is expected to allow students to transfer to some prestigious partners such as Deakin University (Australia), Chatham University (United States) with equivalent credits recognition.

Refer to the following link for more information:  www.chuyentiep.khoaquocte.vn

– For candidates with VNU Competence Assessment Exam result: the result must be equal to minimum grade regulated by VNU

– For candidates with National High School Graduation result: based on the result of courses complex including Mathematics, Physics, Chemics (Bloc A), Mathematics, Physics, English (Bloc A1), Mathematics, Literature, Foreign language (Bloc D) in accordance with VNU’s requirements.

– Consideration principles: from highest to lowest results for targeted number of students. Candidates who are not eligible to the registered program may be automatically transfered to another one by VNU-IS.

– Consideration of direct recruitment or priority for candidates who either meet requirements stipulated in Enrolment Regulations released by MOET or come from Specialized High Schools in accordance with VNU’s requirements.

Notes:

  • Student’s English proficiency input is level B1 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Language Proficiency (equivalent to level 3 under the 6-level Language Proficiency Framework for Vietnam); they must accumulate English proficiency by themselves until reaching level B2 (equivalent to level 4/6) before studying the courses of specialized knowledge modules;
  • The program is taught in English, except for the modules of the General Knowledge that are taught in Vietnamese.

–    Around VND 227,700,000/course (equivalent to USD 9,900/course).

–    This amount will be adjusted due to the exchange rate of VietcomBank at billing time. 

The English Language Training Program of the International School (VNU-IS) is distinct from the intensive English courses of other universities (ULIS – VNU, Hanoi University or Danang University, etc.) regarding the standardized program structure, standardized outcomes as well as the job positions in the future.

English curriculum (minor in Business – IT) has two minors to choose: Business or IT. For each major, learners are trained in 4 groups of job positions: (1) Translator, Interpreter for Business or IT, (2) English instructor for Business or IT; (3) Public Relations officers in foreign affairs organizations, companies, corporations in Business or IT; (4) Researcher on Applied linguistics at some research institutes.
