Within the framework of the cooperation between Southern Cross University (SCU) from Australia and NTU, from October 31 to November 11, 2016, ten students from SCU attended some short courses organized by NTU.

The program provided the group knowledge on aquaculture, fisheries and seafood processing, marine ecosystems and climate change in Vietnam. They also conducted field trips to aquaculture sites, seafood processing factories, marine protected zones, research sites, etc. During the studies, the students also have plenty of opportunities to meet with locals, visit historical places, and learn about Vietnamese culture and language.





SCU and NTU have established collaborative relationship since the end of 2015 and recently, signed a MoU on September 12, 2016. This successful program is a good sign, showing the efficiency in the cooperation as well as deepening the relationship between the two universities. It also helps promote new collaborative activities in the future.

SCU is one of the three universities in the RUN network with a strong background in fisheries training. SCU students are from more than 60 countries. SCU is in the top 150 leading universities ranked by Times Higher Education magazine, of which more than 24 areas are leading in Australia and the world.
