Low cost of university education in VietNam not all positive

Universities in VietNam are increasing their revenues by taking in as many students as possible by lowering admission standards.

As a result, the methods of instruction suffer, with high ratios of students to lecturers. Subjects are not specifically tailored to students according to ability or to the type of institution, e.g. students at research-oriented universities follow the same structure of study as those in practical institutions, reports VietNamNet.

This is mainly due to the low cost of higher education in the country. Tuition fees for a university education in Vietnam are $500 per student per annum, while the cost is around $36,000 for private schools in the USA and $16,000 for public institutions.
