“These are only some of many more attractive features that EU offers in a very competitive ‘package’ to Vietnamese students to create their invaluable, memorable, and unique experience: a great variety of high quality courses in sciences, economics and finance, art, music, hospitality…, combined with a wealth of history, breath-taking landscapes, buzzing cities and vibrant cultures”, he said.

This year, more than 500 undergraduate students received funding under the International Credit Mobility program to complete short courses (3-6 months) in Europe.
