With the aim of diversifying educational program offerings, IEI looks to partner with many more reputed colleges and top universities in highly developed countries such as the United States, New Zealand, Australia, etc.
Starting from 2020, IEI is partnering with Macleans College to deliver summer study tour and study abroad programs for Vietnamese students from the age of 13 – 16, who wish to pursue a degree in education at Macleans College. This is perceived as a huge opportunity for Vietnamese students to win their most desired scholarships and to be enrolled in a full-time program at a respected institution.
