General Introduction

By applying an innovative program, the foundation year equips USTH students with the skills to be successful in any university setting. In addition to scientific subjects (i.e. Chemistry, Physics, Biology, IT and Mathematics), Management Sciences and English are taught to develop students’ communication and interpersonal skills and ability to work in groups, developing practical skills essential for working not only in research, but also in today’s business.
The enormous knowledge provided in the first year will help students make a smooth transition into any particular training field of the second and third year. Indeed, USTH offers not only strong traditional skills but also high levels of creativity and innovation in order to stay competitive for the Vietnamese and International market.
More amazing things are waiting for you!
