As the first modern university established and one of the two national universities in Vietnam, Vietnam National University, Hanoi (VNU) has undergone various stages of development: the University of Indochina established on 16 May 1906; Vietnam National University (November 1945); the University of Hanoi (June 1956). In December 1993, VNU was reorganized on the basis of amalgamating the University of Hanoi and some other leading universities in Hanoi.

VNU is the largest comprehensive higher education and research center in Vietnam. VNU is entrusted with the task of producing highly qualified human resources and talents for the industrialization and modernization of the country. VNU holds a special position in Vietnam’s higher education system, operating according to a special regulation promulgated by the Prime Minister.

Viet Nam National University Ho Chi Minh City (VNUHCM) was founded on January 27th, 1995 according to the Government’s Decree No. 16/CP on the basis of the merger of nine universities into eight members. VNUHCM was officially launched on February 6th, 1996.

In 2001, VNUHCM was reorganized according to the Prime Minister’s Decree No. 15/2001/QĐ-TTg (February 12nd, 2001). VNUHCM has its own organizational and operational regulations. Accordingly, VNUHCM is a multidisciplinary, highly qualified and advanced center for post-secondary education and science-technology research activities which plays a key role in the national higher education system and is able to satisfy development needs, according to the Topuniversities website.

At present, VNUHCM consists of seven member units: University of Technology; University of Science; University of Social Sciences and Humanities; International University; University of Information Technology; University of Economics and Law; Institute for Environment and Resources.

Ton Duc Thang University (TDTU), a young and aspiring university in vibrant Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam’s economic and educational hub, is proudly committed to Vietnam’s human development and sustainable growth into the 21st century. Established in 1997, TDTU has steadily developed into one of the largest and fastest-growing universities in Vietnam. The most significant milestone of such amazing growth is the inauguration of our main campus in Tan Phong Ward, District 7, Ho Chi Minh City in August 2011.

It is the industrial engineer training center of the country during building and development processes, and the cradle of high-quality human resources for the country’s modernization and industrialization.

In its early days, the whole University concentrated its efforts on settling facilities for classrooms and laboratories by renovating and buying new equipment; and at the same time, on the development of managerial and teaching staff to prepare basic conditions for the opening of the First Cohort.
