2021 Online Entrance Ceremony for New Students in Viet Nam

The Asian Satellite Campuses Institute (ASCI) welcomed a new student from the Diplomatic Academy of Viet Nam (DAV) at an entrance ceremony on November 1, 2021.
In opening remarks, Dr. Kazuhito Kawakita, Vice President of Nagoya University (NU) introduced the background of the “Transnational Doctoral Programs for Leading Professionals in Asian Countries” which was triggered by the expectation of students who were eager to continue their studies to obtain a doctoral degree but could not attend the campus directly.

Dr. Pham Lan Dung, President of the DAV, gave thanks to the ASCI for providing a program for those in their organization wishing to do more advanced research.  Dr. Dung also expressed her warm congratulations to Ms. Ngo Thi Tran who has enrolled in the Graduate School of Law, NU.
