On March 31, British University Vietnam (BUV) officially introduced three pioneering academic programmes, including Computer Games Design and Programming, Contemporary Creative Practice, and International Hospitality Management, bringing more chances for students to expose themselves to a wide variety of choices, pursue their passions, and meet the increasing demand for human resources in these fields.

The introduction of the three new programmes was held at the BUV Open Day themed "Ignite Your Passion" at BUV’s new campus in Ecopark, attracting nearly 2,000 high school students from Hanoi as well as neighbouring provinces and cities.

“In the journey to fulfill our mission, we always offer the latest opportunities that come with the Fourth Industrial Revolution. We work closely with the government and business partners to ensure that our programmes provide students with the skills which employers are seeking,” said Prof Raymond Gordon, president of BUV.

“After analysing recent reports, we realise that in the upcoming years, there will be impressive developments in the human resources demand for Computer Games Design and Programming, Innovation and Creativity, as well as Hospitality & Tourism. Our three new bachelor's degree programmes named Computer Games Design and Programming, Contemporary Creative Practice, and International Hospitality Management, together with the current programmes at BUV, will nurture the skills and passions of the young Vietnamese generation, as well as build the strength and confidence they need to build their careers.”

Throughout BUV Open Day, there was a series of seminars which are specially designed to help students gain an overview of the labour market and career prospects in each field. The speakers are all industry experts, holding leadership positions at the 5-star Intercontinental hotel chain and video game developer Gameloft, which are international partners of BUV.

BUV was officially put into operation in 2010. Currently, British University Vietnam offers 10 Bachelor’s and Master’s programmes, with degrees provided by British University Vietnam and its two prestigious partners, University of London and Staffordshire University. In February 2018, BUV launched a VND34 billion ($1.5 million) Scholarship Fund, with a wide range of scholarship opportunities up to full tuition fees for students who excel in academic and/or extracurricular activities.

To meet the growing education demand, BUV opened its new campus in Ecopark of the northern province of Hung Yen in September 2018 after three years of construction. Covering 6.5 hectares, the $70 million new campus is able to accommodate 2,000 students.
