TEAN has joined with RMIT University to offer Vietnamese students who typically attend a U.S. university a unique semester in their home country and stay on track for graduation. As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to affect international travel and schooling, this program allows Vietnamese students who are currently in Vietnam and cannot easily return to their U.S. studies to continue earning credit toward their degree.  An Australian institution, RMIT is known for its cutting-edge technology, science and design programs that provide plenty of practical training, research and hands-on practice. The modern Ho Chi Minh City campus draws students particularly interested in STEM courses, Fashion, Digital Design (like 3D animation), Business, Communications, and Hospitality and Tourism. 


Stay on track to graduate without having to worry about visas and travel
