British University Vietnam is proud of its extensive partnership network in the corporate world and the global education market.
Chris Jeffery, Chief Academic Officer: “British University Vietnam believes in the true meaning of partnership, the BUV International Office is part of our further development in this area. The team provides a full one-stop-shop for institution partners as well as students. Vietnam is an exciting, promising, energetic country with ambitious plans for further development. No matter the field, no matter the interest, the country will provide an excellent experience for students and give them an insight into one of the fastest-growing economies in the world.”
BUV International Office provides students with various opportunities to study, enhance their international experience, and expand their global partnership network, helping them develop their cross-culture competencies in their future work and life.
BUV has always been a gateway for our local and international talents to access worldwide education and labour markets.
BUV’s global mobility programme provides students with opportunities to study overseas during their degrees to enhance their international experience. We are committed to developing a generation of global citizens who can succeed anywhere in the world.
Students from our partner universities are eligible to study at BUV through exchange programmes. Inbound exchange students can choose either a one-semester or two-semester study period at BUV. Short-term study students will receive full support and equal benefits from BUV staff and faculty during their exchange study period in BUV.
BUV’s outbound exchange programme enables BUV students to study in many renowned universities globally without paying extra tuition fees. Students can choose to study one semester or a full year overseas to enrich their learning experience as well as their global skill-sets.
BUV’s degrees are globally recognised degrees. All BUV students have the opportunity to transfer and complete their degrees in any of the prestigious institutions that BUV has established partnership links with. In addition, BUV students are eligible to transfer to partner institutions within the University of London and Staffordshire University’s international network in over 60 countries.
This global transfer programme provides BUV students unique opportunities to experience high-quality education both in Vietnam and overseas.
BUV welcomes students from all over the world to come to Vietnam to study and experience one of the most buoyant economies in the region. BUV also sends students to different places internationally to develop their knowledge, professional skills and cross-cultural competencies.

” To be honest, I got the chance to become global buddy just by chance, and on the first day at global buddy, I was really nervous since this is the first time I got the chance to represent BUV but by now I’ve become friends with many others from both other cohorts of BUV and also from Staffordshire University and I am really happy for that”.

“BUV has been a great experience. I’d say it’s been really welcoming. It’s been really nice to meet all students here as well and hear their thoughts and opinion and stuff as well, and mixing with the different culture as well. Seeing how people live and what they are doing at their best time as well actually and their thoughts on outside of the world as well actually. And the lecturers have been really good, really knowledgeable as well, and really passionate on their subjects actually
International student support
BUV is committed to providing not only a distinctively multi-cultural learning environment but also authentic opportunities for local and international students as we prepare them with robust skill sets to become global citizens of the future. We aim to diversify student experiences locally and internationally through activities such as global seminars/workshops, global virtual internships, study tours, academic exchange programmes, and many more.
Each student, from their first day at BUV, will be introduced to a dedicated team of academic staff who will provide academic support or guidance at any time student needs from the start until they complete their study at BUV.
The Global Buddy team is a group of BUV volunteers who dedicate their time and commitment to supporting international students with on and off-campus services. BUV buddies shall be the first point of contact for each foreign student during their whole study period at BUV. As local students, BUV Buddies will support international students to quickly adapt to a new learning environment and get on with the nuances of Vietnamese culture. Together, they will explore how to live in harmony and connect within the community.

” The most important we got is the buddy we have so far. Obviously we have … before so we have information before, we know exactly what to expect and what we embark on but when we reached here I was really impressed by the system and the buddy and how much time they spend with us and I was so stress when I am getting close to my deadline and I was impressed that they have actually time to spend with us when due deadline… so I was impressed with the organization and obviously people in charge and how everything was perfectly organized”.
