The British Council (BC) on September 24 unveiled a plan to establish a Vietnam-Britain international university in central Da Nang city in October.

Initiated by the BC, the future university will benefit from a strategic partnership shaped by Da Nang University on the Vietnamese side and Aston and Rolls Royce International universities on the British side.

The event reflects the partial realisation of the strategic education cooperation established by Vietnam and the UK at a time when the two countries are saluting the 40th anniversary of their diplomatic ties.

The same day, the visiting Prince Andrew, Duke of York, presented full-term scholarships, worth 600 million VND, to four excellent students in Vietnam.

The Royal Family’s full-term scholarships are granted to those who have not only excelled in studies but have also been involved in social and voluntary activities and shown leadership capability.-VNA
