Welcome to IEI


As part of the long-term development strategy to promote the internationalization of education, The International Education Institute (IEI) was established by Vietnam National University Ho Chi Minh City (VNUHCM) on the basis of merging three centers: International Training Center (established in 2001), Foreign Language Center (established in 1997) and Human Resource Development Center (established in 2000).

Over the course of more than 20 years, IEI’s predecessor has built a strong reputation for the Institute in the international education industry. As a result, the merger has created momentum to take IEI to new heights, affirming its position as the leading education and training institution in the country.

With the goal of “connecting minds – inventing futures”, IEI is committed to placing students at the center of all curriculum activities. We believe that by doing so, we would effectively improve the overall quality of the labor market, and greatly contribute to the socio-economic development of Viet Nam.

With a reputable partner network and great enthusiasm, we look forward to developing new affiliate programs and training courses suitable to even more learners, aiming to improve the education standards of Vietnam in the new era.
