By giving a welcome address to all international exchange students of HUST, Assoc.

Besides, international students also had a chance to learn about some basic information on the training regulations of HUST from the HUST Academic Affairs Office and shared with us their very first impressions about HUST and Vietnam. 

In the ceremony, a student from Technical University of Munich expressed his excitement to come to Vietnam and attending a course on Data Science and Artificial Intelligence. Besides the desire to gain practical knowledge and experience in the field, he intends to learn more about Vietnamese culture and art.

Returning to Vietnam for the second time, Cho Su Wai - a computer science student at Yango University, Myanmar, expressed his love for Vietnam: “I want to speak Vietnamese fluently, moreover, by joining this exchange program at HUST, I will gain useful knowledge about the major that I am pursuing”.

When the welcome session came to the end, we took many cute photos together. After taking the campus tour around HUST, an orientation session is well-prepared for exchange students to learn about Vietnamese people and the lifestyle here. Bonding games are hosted by I-Buddy Team, bringing in great time for everyone to get to know each other. 

Upcoming, the External Affairs Office will host a series of cultural-exploring activities where international students are expected to dive deep into the local lifestyle, language and cuisine. Regarding the academic matters, meetings (with HUST professors) are also scheduled for each group students who joined in different programs at HUST for the week after.
