November 30, 2016 Ryukyu Shimpo
Okinawa University has made a deal with Ho Chi Minh City University of Teacher Training to promote an exchange program between Okinawa and Vietnam. A signing ceremony was held at the university on November 30. President of the Okinawa University Hiroshi Nakachi has signed the contract that vice president of Ho Chi Minh City University of Teacher Training Nguyen Thi Minh Hong brought, hoping for further development of both schools. Ho Chi Minh City University of Teacher Training is the seventh overseas school that Okinawa University has made a deal with.
As part of study tour programs, students of Okinawa University have made annual visits to Ho Chi Minh City University of Teacher Training since 2014, promoting exchange between students. The programs have prompted Okinawan students to get jobs or enroll in schools in Vietnam. For the sake of further development of student exchange, the schools made the agreement.
From now on, the universities will implement exchange of students, faculties, academic information, and carry out collaborative projects. Specifically, both schools will implement a one-year student exchange program and shorter exchanges for students on vacation. The schools will accommodate visiting students and support their lives and studies.
