This event is organized to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between Vietnam and Australia.

The purpose of the event is to introduce Vietnamese students in Hanoi city to education, vocational training, and job opportunities available in Australia.

Representatives from the Australian Embassy in Vietnam, Australian universities, and educational organizations provided information and consultations on education, vocational training, settlement opportunities, and Vietnam-Australia cooperation.

Jennifer Bahen, education and research counselor of the Australian Embassy in Vietnam, mentioned that numerous education-focused activities have been organized since the beginning of 2023.

Australia currently has 40 public universities responsible for training and research, 130 private schools specializing in training, 30 public vocational training establishments, and thousands of private establishments for students.

Vocational training programs in Australia focus on teaching vocational skills through observation and practice. Teachers are not required to have a university degree but must possess practical work experience and vocational training certification.

Training facilities collaborate closely with businesses, where businesses design vocational training programs and may add additional requirements or content based on actual situations.

Currently, there are approximately 25,000 Vietnamese students studying at universities in Australia, a number expected to increase further.

Jennifer Bahen believes that although the number of Vietnamese students studying vocational training in Australia is still modest, given Vietnam’s high economic and social growth rate, this number will undoubtedly increase in the future.

Affirming Australia’s openness to Vietnamese students, Jennifer Bahen mentioned that the Australian Embassy will conduct various promotional activities at schools and consulting companies soon.
