Higher and tertiary education have become crucial to modern economies and societies. As a nation, Vietnam has great potential and its secondary school students perform very well in comparative international tests, yet its universities and colleges are poor-performing, under-funded and slow to change compared to those in neighbouring East Asian nations like China and South Korea. Why is this the case - and what can be done about it? Higher Education in Vietnam dissects the problems and provides constructive and well-located solutions, combining reform with Vietnam's strong educational tradition, for the transformation of higher education in governance, funding, curriculum, quality assurance, internationalization, language policy, research and vocational training. Written by a team of expert insiders with international experience, this book is the first comprehensive diagnosis and prescription for higher education in Vietnam and establishes a distinctive Vietnamese pathway for modernization in the global knowledge economy.
