YZU begins to recruit international students in the East Asian countries for the New Southern Policy launched by the Tsai Administration. YZU, Far Eastern Apparel (Vietnam) and Vietnam National University (VNU) in Hanoi sign the MOU on November 11 at YZU. Nguyen Kim Son, President of VNU, also visits the campus and has a substantial conversation with his counterparts.
President Jyh-Yang Wu says YZU works with her founder Far Eastern New Century for the student recruitment project, hoping the partnership with VNU will cultivate the potential workers for Far Eastern Apparel, the textile factory in Vietnam. According to the MOU, the project offers a dual degree diploma, requiring students to study two years in YZU, and another two years in VNU, Hanoi. Students have internships in Far Eastern Apparel during the summer time. The alternative education plan is students study in VNU for three years, and one year in YZU. Wu says the project is the win-win cooperation; the university recruits more excellent international students, and the industry expects potential workers. The University-Industry partnership ensures students receiving the quality education and prepare for their professional career in the future.
