Master’s studies

We welcome Vietnamese students!

We have over 4000 international students on campus studying for a PhD, a Master’s or Bachelor’s degree or spending a semester here as exchange students.

In 2016 we had applications from 163 different countries. Since the nationality of our students is not registered in our systems we don’t know how many students from Vietnam we currently have. However, we do know that in 2016 we had 76 applicants from Vietnam for our Master’s programmes.

Uppsala University office in Hanoi

We have our own office in Hanoi and our staff there will be delighted to talk to you about education opportunities and assist with your application. 

Uppsala University Vietnam Alumni Chapter

The Uppsala University Vietnam Alumni Chapter is based in Hanoi and is open to all our alumni in Vietnam. Uppsala University Vietnam Alumni Chapter members are alumni, researchers, former employees, honorary doctors and supporters of the University, currently or permanently residing in Vietnam.
