This Exchange Agreement for international student exchange is the first in a series of upcoming institutional partners Fulbright will be cooperating with.
Fulbright University Vietnam and Yale-NUS College recently signed an Exchange Agreement for an international student exchange, beginning Spring Semester 2022. This will enable Fulbright and Yale-NUS students to go on international exchange for an academic term between both institutions, supporting the internationalization of both student bodies and building mutual understanding between liberal arts institutions in the region. Fulbright and Yale-NUS undergraduate students will apply for university selection via their respective home institution’s internal process.
Benjamin Van Son, Assistant Senior Programme Manager of Yale-NUS College said: “Yale-NUS College is excited to partner Fulbright University Vietnam and build connections for students from both sides to gain academic, professional, and personal growth, and learning through meaningful exchange of knowledge and experiences. We look forward to welcoming our first cohort of Fulbright University Vietnam students to our campus next semester.”
Vincent Pham, Manager of Career & Partnership Development of Fulbright University Vietnam, is keen to send and receive Fulbright’s first batches of international exchange students. He remarked: “Partnering with Yale-NUS is an excellent opportunity for Fulbright students to experience a liberal education in a regional context with a diverse group of students in a multicultural campus and country. With Yale-NUS being our first official international exchange partner, Fulbright is eager to continue expanding institutional partnerships to further enable Fulbright students to gain an international experience and perspective that is critical to informing Vietnam’s future changemakers and leaders.”
Fulbright University Vietnam is determined to provide a growing number of institutional partners for international exchange to provide its students with exposure to diverse settings, experience with specialized faculty and programs at well-regarded institutions, and ability to expand personal and professional opportunities that come with international experiences.
