Autonomy in higher education in Vietnam facing challenges

HANOI (VIETNAM NEWS/ANN)-- Autonomy in higher education in Vietnam is facing challenges, particularly accountability and finances, according to Deputy Minister of Education and Training Hoang Minh Son.
Speaking at the annual event Vietnam Education Conference, Son said that since 2014, 23 universities in Vietnam had joined a pilot programme on autonomy under a Government resolution.
Most of the participating universities have made breakthroughs in their training and research, which helped improve the performance of national higher education, he said.
For example, the universities had attracted more lecturers with PhD degrees, enrolled more students, launched more training programmes and the number of their studies published in international academic scientific journals increased 10 times, accounting for 45 percent of the country’s total internationally-published studies.
Under the autonomy programme, the universities reported their revenue and spending increased 1.5 times compared with when they received more State-funding. The funding provided by the Government to them reduced 2.1 times in the last six years.
