WHY STUDY DEVELOPMENT IN VIETNAM?
Vietnam’s rising status as a nation of extraordinary growth and socioeconomic change is matched only by its ecological and cultural attractions, which include six biosphere reserves and seven UNESCO World Heritage sites. Study Vietnam’s rich history, overcoming decades of war and isolation through social, political, and economic transformation to become one of Asia’s strongest economies. Meet government officials, Vietnamese National Assembly members and speakers with the Fulbright Program Center, as well as local university students who attend SIT lectures and can help you experience their culture.
Observe international and local NGOs such as Oxfam and UNICEF. Experience indigenous music, arts, dress, and traditions. Visit the capital city of Hanoi, the cradle of Vietnamese civilization. Explore Hue, Vietnam’s last imperial city and home to the Forbidden Citadel and its tombs. Trek to the Phong Nha caves system and see the oldest karst mountains of Asia, formed 400 million years ago. Live with a Vietnamese host family in Ho Chi Minh City, the program’s base, and assist in a community-led service project.
