IUJ Opens New Office in Hanoi

The International University of Japan (IUJ) has opened the IUJ-ULIS Cooperative Office in the Socialist Republic of Vietnam on November 7th. This is the school’s first overseas office. We will be working to establish a relationship with universities, research organizations, etc. in Vietnam and strengthen or collaboration to help make our society more global while promoting our public relations.

In September 2014, our school’s concept of “IUJ Evolution – Establishing a New Global Standard form Asia” was selected by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology’s Top Global University Project. This new office was opened with this concept in mind.

The University of Languages and International Studies – Vietnam National University, Hanoi (ULIS) is a member of the largest group of national universities in Vietnam and the school possesses one of the top Japanese language departments. Previously, ULIS had collaborated with our school’s Center for Language Education and Research on Japanese language education.

A tape cutting ceremony was held in front of the new Cooperative Office at ULIS campus and around 120 people attended the ceremony afterward, including Minister Jun Yanagi, Deputy Chief of Mission of the Embassy of Japan in Vietnam, and people from various government organizations, Japanese companies, etc.

In the future, the new Cooperative Office is planned to not only offer education in the Japanese language, but also training on Japanese business practices to those working at Japanese companies in Vietnam.
