Inspections in foreign-related education and training institutions throughout the country by the MOET have detected some wrongdoings and violations. Under current regulations, all international co-operation for graduates and higher education must be licensed by the MOET or selected institutions including the national universities in Ha Noi and HCM City, Thai Nguyen University, Hue University and Da Nang University.
