IIG Vietnam and College Board will cooperate to organize training sessions for AP teachers, counselors, and administrators in Vietnam. This is to meet the needs of schools and to provide education administrators with access to high-quality international education training. At the same time, IIG Vietnam will support the organization of AP exams for high schools interested in this test.

Paul Sanders, the CEO, emphasized his commitment to work closely with IIG Vietnam to widely deploy international standardized tests such as SAT, PSAT, and AP in Vietnam. He said that the College Board will constantly improve to provide a superior test experience and give each student the opportunity to have access to prestigious international assessment standards.

Deputy Minister of Education and Training Nguyen Van Phuc said that in recent times, Vietnam has received a lot of support from the United States. In particular, this support focuses on the field of higher education with many programs on innovation, university governance, and effective teaching and learning. Many scholarship programs for students as well as faculty and student exchange programs have contributed to improving the quality of Vietnam’s human resources. In particular, these programs are implemented in the context that Vietnam is carrying out a fundamental and comprehensive reform of education and training.

Emphasizing the importance of the cooperation between IIG Education Vietnam and the College Board, the Deputy Minister believes that Vietnamese students will have more opportunities to enter prestigious universities. He also wished that the two organizations would coordinate in implementing serious, honest, and objective exams to ensure the interests of candidates.
