HCM City (VNA) - Students from Daegu, the Republic of Korea (RoK) and Vietnam National University-Ho Chi Minh City are taking part in an exchange programme at the university’s campus in Thu Duc district.

During their four-day stay, the delegation of RoK students and officials will learn about Vietnam’s culture and take a tour of the central city of Da Nang and HCM City, including the historic Cu Chi Tunnels.

Earlier, students, lecturers and staff from the Vietnam National University-HCM City took part in an exchange programme in Daegu in early July.

Dr Nguyen Duc Nghia, deputy director of the Vietnam National University-HCM City, said the exchange programme was one of the activities to celebrate the 25th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and the RoK.

Vietnam has become an ideal destination for students of the RoK to study, according to the Embassy of Vietnam in the RoK.

Each year, around 3,000 students from the RoK enroll in short-term courses or take part in exchange activities at Vietnam National University-HCM City, accounting for 85 percent of its foreign students.-VNA
