International students are an integral part of our students’ community. We welcome students from all over the world to have a unique academic and cultural experience at our friendly campus. NTU have received and trained hundreds of international students from developing countries such as Laos, Cambodia, China, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Nepal, Liberia, Ghana, Rwanda, and many others. NTU have also offered short courses, internship or exchange programs for students from European and American countries such as Czech Republic, England, France, Italia, Portugal, United States, etc.

  Students’ reflections 

  Jean Claude NDORIMANA, Master  student in Aquaculture from Rwanda

"I would  say that all staff in NTU are very friendly, any kind of help you may require which is in their possibility they provide it; because we deal very often with Department of External Affairs, I would like to take this opportunity and present my degree of appreciation to all of them without any particular sympathy or emphasize. Any problem we face, they intervene as if it is their own problem; they treat students as real friends and colleagues; we interact as if we are in family. 

Students in Nha Trang are also very friendly but you need to take time because when they see you as a foreigner they are surprised but as you get familiar to them, they are unique, very helpful, friendly so that today everyone we so far met is a friend of mine; the only barrier to many students is the communication in English. 

Campus life is also good, they try to keep the campus clean, enough security in the whole campus; many entertainment events but I would suggest the University to consider the presence of Foreign Students so that the Master of Ceremony in different events organized should summarize every step in English so that we can be able to follow what is going on; his is the case on University website

You should try to make easy translation into English because very often we we try to translate we fail and we can know any announcement apart from our colleagues. 

Otherwise, NTU is well located in a beautiful place, people around Nha Trang city are also very kind".

KAMONDO Stephanie, Master  student in Aquaculture from Rwanda  

"Frankly speaking, Nha Trang University is exactly what we expected before coming here in Vietnam for our Postgraduate study. It has great facilities, like lecture halls,  classrooms, experimental and practical facilities, wonderful and spacious dormitories especially for foreign students in K1 with access to the sea view, modern library system, gymnastic complex (as exercising is one of my hobbies), and many other teaching, learning and research facilities.  All these and much more, help us to be in good health and strong intellectual state. This social and friendly environment gives me so much hope in the future. 

People in Nha Trang city in general and everyone (lecturers, staff, students) at NTU are particularly very nice people, very friendly with care, every time they greet me with a big smile.    

I guarantee that, NTU is the right Institution for higher education, especially in aquaculture program because the staff, lecturers are dedicated to their jobs, they always make sure that we are gaining not only theoretical knowledge but also practical experiment. 

One of the proofs of this is that we (4 Rwandan students) had one month of training trip in Research Institute of Aquaculture No. from 15th April – 15th May, 2013. I would like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude the NTU particularly to the Aquaculture Department. I also recognize that we have very kind classmates and we thank them for their assistance and encouragements".
