Vietnamese Students' Transitions in Study Abroad Programs
Nguyen, My Linh Thi
Australian Journal of Career Development, v21 n3 p13-22 Spr 2012
Vietnam is at a pivotal point in positioning itself within the global economy. As organisations and government agendas are pushing for a more skilled workforce, it is evident that Vietnam has to deal with the implications for the changing educational landscape. This article presents a review of the literature related to study abroad, looking at examples from neighbouring countries as models and the implications these might have for Vietnam. Push and pull factors contribute to the reasons that more Vietnamese are looking to study abroad programs. The numbers of people choosing to study abroad is projected to climb as more self-funded and career-minded individuals look outwards to gain advanced qualifications. University career services can play an important role in supporting students exiting and returning home, to help to maximise their learning abroad and to integrate more effectively upon their return home.
