Vietnam's Hong Bang International University (HIU) and its Indian partner - Aieraa Overseas Studies recently welcomed the first 20 Indian medical students to study in Vietnam.
This is the first time, a university in Ho Chi Minh City has international students come to study medicine.
Student Khushi Jai Prakash Asrani shared that they were worried about language differences, so they tried to learn Vietnamese. "However, when I came to Vietnam, I saw that everyone was friendly to welcome me, and the feeling of anxiety was gone."
“I learned a lot about the people, history and country of Vietnam before deciding to choose this place. Compared the medical training in several countries, HIU's policies suits me best," said Asrani.

More than 20 Indian international students who entered the HIU, are excellent students who have passed the application and interview rounds consist of professors and doctors from HIU's Health and International Languages and Cultures faculties.
For the first time, a university in Ho Chi Minh City had international students come to study medicine. This has an important meaning in the development of education in the country, marking the maturity of the prestige and medical training level of Vietnamese universities.
The course will be for six years. Hong Bang will train the students entirely in English based on the standard national medical training program with changes made to meet global standards.
Students will practice at the school's functional practice rooms and hospitals that are medical facilities associated with the University such as Thong Nhat Hospital, Cho Ray Hospital, Nguyen Trai Hospital; along with community practice sessions when participating in programs such as dental and eye exams for high school students.
Graduates can participate at hospitals and medical facilities; teach at medical and pharmaceutical training institutions; working in research institutes, health science regulatory agencies as well as international organizations operating in the health field.
Besides theoretical and clinical knowledge, the international students will also learn the Vietnamese language and culture.
