British ambassador to Vietnam, Anthony Stokes, will manage the Hanoi-based British University Vietnam (BUV), according to an agreement signed November 4 between the ambassador and BUV president Sir Graeme Davies.
The agreement is seen as a commitment on part of the British government to ensure training quality at the first British university in Vietnam, the Vietnam News Agency reported.
Stokes said the agreement was an affirmation of the strategic partnership between Vietnam and the UK, particularly in education, established in 2010.
The BUV is among key projects established under the partnership and has received support from the British government, he said.
The Hanoi-based BUV officially began enrolling students in October 2010.
It provides courses in banking and finance, international business administration and marketing management that are certified by the UK's London University and Staffordshire University.
The university will open a main campus in Hung Yen Province near Hanoi to allow the enrollment of 10,000 students in 2014.
It also plans to open another campus in Ho Chi Minh City in the near future.
