HCM CITY — The University of Economics HCM City in collaboration with the Australian Trade and Investment Commission in Việt Nam (Austrade) launched the “Shine With Australia” magazine on Thursday (April 20).
The launch is part of celebrations of the 50th anniversary of the bilateral relationship between Việt Nam and Australia.
The magazine provides information about Australian international education with updates on studying abroad, useful lessons from prominent alumni and insights from experts from many top universities around the world.
It features stories about outstanding Vietnamese youths who have gone to Australia to study and achieved great success.
Speaking at the launch, Xavier Simonet, CEO of Austrade, said Việt Nam and Australia have had a long and deep bilateral relationship built over the past 50 years, with education always being a cornerstone.
In 2022 Việt Nam was the fifth largest source market for students for Australia, he said.
There are 100,000 Vietnamese alumni and 24,000 students currently studying in Australia.
Many of them are highly regarded in their respective fields and have made significant contributions to the two countries.
The magazine would become a useful resource for students and their families as well as potential partners in Việt Nam, Simonet said.
Prof Sử Đình Thành, president of the University of Economics HCM City (UEH), said the university would help Australian education reach more students in Việt Nam.
Created by UEH and Austrade, the magazine is divided into three parts: Studying abroad - Inspiration and values, experience and tips and Australia - Education powerhouse: destination and opportunity.
The magazine is named after the global "Shine with Australia" campaign carried out by the country’s Government to invite prospective international students to ‘discover their brilliant future self’ by studying in Australia.
Published by UEH Publishing House, the magazine will be distributed to high schools in Việt Nam.
A total of 1,000 copies will be printed in the first edition. —VNS
