Fulbright University Vietnam (FUV), a university with 100% foreign investment under the sponsorship of the U.S. Government, has brought Liberal Arts to Vietnam to “reimagine the university in Vietnam.” Their mission is “Creating the next generation of change-makers in Vietnam for a rapidly evolving world.”
What makes studying at FUV so different? Let’s check these 3 facts below:
1. Fulbright’s curriculum is built on the American tradition of liberal arts, sciences and engineering.
But FUV does not aim to recreate an American university in Vietnam. Their interdisciplinary core introduces students to topics spanning the arts, humanities, engineering, and the social, natural, and computational sciences, focusing on Vietnam.
>> Liberal Arts education is a new breeze in Vietnam, and it will soon become a trend in higher education. Join Stephen Turban on the Chuyen du hoc podcast as he explains the benefits of the Liberal Education model in the United States and at Fulbright University, as well as crucial criteria that students typically overlook when choosing a school.
Students have the chance to explore before digging into one specific major.
2. Student-Centered Approach to Teaching and Learning
At Fulbright, they believe students learn best when they engage directly with questions, problems and ideas. The faculty are open and accessible. Students have opportunities to learn through discussions, debates, group projects, presentations and research opportunities.
3. Variety of relevant experiential learning opportunities

FUV encourages students to learn through experience. These activities provide students with an overview of Vietnamese and the world’s society and economy; they allow them to navigate and apply their knowledge to engage, contribute, and even organize in a variety of ways.
