Project expresses the long-term commitment of BUV to providing international-standard education in Vietnam.
British University Vietnam (BUV) officially began construction today of a new campus at the Ecopark Township in northern Hung Yen province. The project covers an area of 6.5 ha with investment of $70 million and will educate 7,000 full-time students once opened.
According to Mr. Jesse David Boone, General Director of BUV, the new campus highlights the foreign direct investment attraction in education in Hung Yen province in particular and in Vietnam in general. “We are impressed by the progress at Ecopark, especially the efforts made in creating a leading educational services hub for people in the north,” he said. “Our Ecopark campus will act as a foundation for BUV in Vietnam and we are proud to commit to such a long-term investment in education.”
The project has three phases. The first is on 3 ha with investment capital of $25 million, educating 1,200 students after opening at the end of 2017.
Once fully finished the new campus promises to provide Vietnamese and foreign students with world-class teaching and learning facilities, an international faculty, and a globally-recognized degree upon graduation.
British University Vietnam is the first and only university in the country fully licensed to deliver undergraduate degree programs of the University of London and Staffordshire University. Earlier this year it became the first international university in Vietnam to be permitted by the Ministry of Education and Training to conduct full-time Finance and Economics studies.
