The number of international students studying in Vietnam increased by 8% - 10% per year in the 2018 – 2023 period, the Ministry of Education and Training has reported.

About 22,000 international students have studied in educational institutions across Vietnam through scholarship programs under agreements, other scholarship channels, and self-financing arrangements, excluding those joining short-term training and research courses.

Vietnamese educational institutions hosting international students regularly organize cultural, artistic, and sports exchange activities, providing opportunities for international students to get insights into Vietnam's cultural traditions and its people, while helping Vietnamese students understand more about the culture of other nations.

According to the ministry, upon completing their studies in Vietnam, many foreign students have actively engaged in developing cultural, educational, diplomatic, economic, and political relations between their countries with Vietnam.

This contributes to not only promoting Vietnam's culture and education globally but also intensifying educational cooperation between the country and other nations, the ministry said.
