HÀ NỘI — The Việt Nam National University of Agriculture (VNUA) will offer more than 500 opportunities for Vietnamese students to study and work in Japan this year.
This was stated by director of the university’s Centre for Human Resource Supply Vũ Ngọc Huyên, who made the announcement at the Japan-Việt Nam cultural festival, organised by the university on Sunday in Hà Nội to help students from universities across the country obtain information about study and job opportunities in Japan.
Huyên said the festival was also a great chance for Vietnamese students, colleges and universities to interact and exchange experiences.
VNUA also used the opportunity to boost cooperation with partners from Japan and at the same time build the image of the university in connection education and admission counseling in 2017, according to the official.
The event, with a variety of promotion services and cultural activities, attracted the participation of some 30,000 students from colleges and universities in northern Việt Nam.
Huyên said the centre had boosted links with 300 domestic enterprises that regularly recruit students graduating from the university.
To create more employment opportunities for students, the director said, the centre had set up representative offices across the country to introduce agricultural employment to businesses and supply high quality human resources to the domestic labour market, meeting the demands of national agricultural restructuring according to modern orientation.
Last year, Huyên said, the centre sent nearly 300 students to work and study in Japan. — VNS
