Reception of International Guests


On June 27, BDU received an international delegation from the Southern Social Sciences Institute under the Vietnam Academy of Social Sciences.

The delegation comprised members from 5 universities of Vienna, Bonn, Prague, Chulalongkorn and Chiang Mai.

These universities have been conducting the Project KNOTS, controlled and supported by Austria Vienna University and EC respectively. The Southern Social Sciences Institute is one member of this project.

In the morning, the delegation toured BDU premises and explored the school’s training model.

During the reception, Ms. Karen Hamilton Nguyen-Head of International Relations Department made a briefing on the school.  The KNOTS research experts highly esteemed the school’s training programs of foreign languages (Chinese, English, Japanese, Korean) and critical thinking.

The two sides discussed and exchanged experience on active teaching, and identified the methods of teaching and researchwhich is no longer meeting the modern needs. Together the parties were able to define a cooperative orientation in education and research between BDU and KNOTS’s target institutions.
