During the orientation session, international students were provided with an informative introduction to the fundamentals of Foreign Trade University. They were also enlightened on matters pertaining to their studies, training at the University, internship, and employment opportunities within Vietnam. Following this, the international students were introduced to their buddiesfrom Foreign Trade University who would be offering support throughout their academic journey.
Furthermore, with the intention of fostering a strong connection between international students and Vietnam students, the university has launched initiatives aimed at transforming each exchange student into an ambassador of Foreign Trade University upon their return to their home countries.
