Vietnam is a country with remarkable history of development. Since 1986, it has turned from one of the world’s poorest regions into one of the world’s fastest-growing economies!
Vietnam’s current population is over 95 million people or 1.27% of the world’s total population. In addition, 45% of all Vietnamese people are 25 years of age or younger. Because of Vietnam’s rapidly growing economy, education abroad is now affordable to many Vietnamese families. As a result, Vietnam is now as one of the fastest growing sources of international students in the world!
Is Vietnam on your international student recruitment map?
The number of internationally mobile Vietnamese students has increased more than 12-fold since 2000. According to various sources, there are over 130,000 Vietnamese students currently studying abroad. Outbound Vietnamese students spend a total of around $3 billion on education abroad per year, pouring investments into nearly 50 countries all over the world.
This exponential growth has been motivated not only by the dramatic shifts in Vietnam’s economic and social climate. Continuous issues with the quality of the local education system and the overall low capacity for research, advanced technological development and innovation further push local students to look for better opportunities abroad.
Add to all that Vietnam’s booming manufacturing, outsourcing and services industries with their unprecedented demand for knowledge and well-educated local workforce, and you will easily get the big picture: the numbers of outbound Vietnamese students will be on the rise for years to come!
