Visit from Vietnam delegation

On the 15 December, we were pleased to welcome a group of academic and media officials led by Ms Le Thanh Lien and Ms Nguyen Thu Ha from Quoc Anh IEC, Hanoi.  The group included Prof Nguyen Xuan Phong, Vice Rector of FPT University Hanoi;  Ms Cao Thi Viet Huong, Vice-Rector of Bing Duong University; Mr Mai Van Hieu, Mr Ta Van Thao and Mr Nguyen Xuan Phong of VTV2 Vietnam Television Educational and Scientific Programme Channel.  The groups visit to Kent was part of a project to visit 3 universities in the south of England to produce a education programme for Vietnamese TV on the educational experience in the UK.

The group was welcomed by Joanne Ganderton-Smith, Director of the International Office, and James Banner, International Officer, and were able to meet and interview Vietnamese students at Kent, followed by lunch and a tour of the campus and the beautiful city of Canterbury.

Ms Thu Ha Nguyen writes:

“I am very glad to write you to express my personal thanks to you and your colleagues for your arrangements for the visit of Vietnam Television to University of Kent.

Certainly the delegates enjoyed learning about Kent, its nice and large campus at Canterbury and programs which University of Kent offers, the diversity of international students. I would like to thank you for arranging the interview of Ms. Joanne Ganderton-Smith, Director International Office. It was also our pleasure to meet and talk to Vietnamese students who are studying there. In other words, it really contributed to our aim viz. to understand more about students life of living and studying in Kent so as to give right advice to potential students and parents about the University.”
