Vietnam leads number of SEA students in US

(VOV) -Vietnamese students remain the 8th largest group currently studying in the United States, according to the Institute of International Education’s (IIE) annual Open Doors report.

The report, published on February 22, shows that Vietnam tops the Southeast Asian region with more than 15,000 of its undergraduate and graduate students studying in the US.

The statistics demonstrate the two governments’ efforts in encouraging Vietnamese to study in the US, as well as their recently reinforced bilateral educational cooperation.

IIE plans to hold a series of annual education exhibitions in Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City on February 24 and 26 respectively. More than 400 US universities and colleges are expected to participate.
