HÀ NỘI (VNS) — The Francophone Universities Agency (AUF) will focus its future plans on dealing with challenges that its university members are currently facing in improving quality of teaching and graduates.
“IT advances should be applied in teaching and study programmes to meet the demand of a large number of students in a country like Việt Nam and in order to help all students to easily find jobs after graduation,” AUF General Director Jean-Paul de Gaudemar said today at a press conference during his visit to Hà Nội.
“Training programmes should be based on the demand of socio-economic development of member countries, so that the agency will attach its future action plans to the development and connection between more than 800 AUF university members, Gaudemar said.
The general director said that further co-operation and exchange between member universities would help improve professional skills, expand training programmes and improve the research capacity and management for each university in the network.
“Each member university should focus on helping students soon and easily find jobs after graduation,” he added.
Established in 1961 with 41 original members, over the past 50 years or so, the AUF has expanded to include more than 800 Francophone education and research units in nearly 100 countries world-wide, including 39 in Việt Nam. — VNS
