Vietnamese-German University

Vietnamese-German University 1

Welcome to the Hinrich Foundation’s Orientation page for all Global Trade Leaders attending Vietnamese-German University.

Below you will find a list of informational resources related to student life in Viet Nam. These have been created by our current scholars to better prepare you for your arrival and ensure the smoothest transition when you start university.

Have a great first semester and congratulations again on being chosen for the Hinrich Global Leadership Program!

Pre-arrival – Before you get to school

Admission process

After you are awarded the scholarship to study Master of Science in Global Production Engineering and Management (GPEM) at Vietnamese-German University (VGU), the University will send you a link to register for an official student ID. This student ID is also your student card number, which will be issued to you within the first week of your arrival. You should keep the student card carefully because it will be used in many activities during studies such as examinations, library usage, etc.

To finish your admission process and receive the admission letter, you will need to provide VGU with the following information:

  • Full name:
  • Passport number:
  • Date of Birth:
  • Previous university:
  • Major:
  • Year of graduation:
  • Work Experiences (if any):

Enrollment process

After you are successfully admitted, you will be asked to prepare the following documents and scan them to send via email to [email protected]:

  • Application form for international applicant to study in Vietnam (sample here);
  • Curriculum vitae which was written by yourself in English;
  • Copy of birth certificated or notarized copy which is translated into English if the original version is not in either English or Vietnamese;
  • Copy of Passport;
  • Copy of certified University degree or notarized translation copy in English;
  • Certified academic transcript which has been translated into English and notarized;
  • A notarized copy of English certificate (IELTS or TOEFL only) (if any)
  • A file of your face picture with file name: your first name_last name middle name_your birthday_your class. For example: adam_smith_31.05.1976_GPEM2015

Visa application

The visa application is handled by VGU, so all you have to do is to send the scanned copy of the photo page of your passport via email to the University. Also, you should note the University about the address of Vietnam Embassy in your country where is convenient for you to collect the visa.

The application process takes around seven working days. After the visa is available, VGU will send you the reference number which you can print and bring to Vietnam Embassy/ Consulate near your location to get your visa.

The visa fee is around US$140. You will arrange the payment and keep the receipt to get the reimbursement later on.

This is one-year multiple entry visa. Therefore, you will need to renew you visa one month prior to the end of semester 2 before you go back to your home country for the summer internship. Again, you just need to give the passport to the VGU coordinator.

Accommodation

Hinrich scholars will reside in VGU dormitory in Binh Duong province which is 10-minute to the campus by the school bus.

You will need to fill in the dorm registration form (sample here) and email the form to the University with the hard copy submitted later when you arrive.

The dorm room provides the beds but no mat, mattress, blanket, fan and other facilities. You can bring some or buy them in the market near the dorm when you arrive.

Flight ticket and departure time

You will book the flight ticket for yourself and receive the transportation allowance later together with your stipend of the first semester. The transportation allowance is to pay for both airfare and the taxi fare to go from Tan Son Nhat International Airport (Ho Chi Minh) to VGU dorm. Therefore, you should consult the coordinator at Hinrich Foundation to make sure you don’t book an overpriced ticket.

It is suggested to arrive at VGU dorm within working hour (8:00am – 4:30pm, Monday – Friday), so you can check in with the dorm management staff right upon your arrival.

You should avoid arriving on late Friday or Saturday because the dorm staff cannot register for your legal stay with the local police within 24 hours of your arrival. If the police checks and you cannot show your legal stay status, you will have to pay a fine.

Before take-off

Make sure you bring the hard copies of all enrollment documents, both original and notarized copies because you will be asked to submit the notarized copies to the Student Affairs Office why the original ones are for its double checking.

Other things you should pay attention to before you take the flight to Vietnam:

  • Consult and inform VGU/ HF about the flight itinerary for logistics arrangement (taxi pick-up, dorm registration)
  • Take note carefully the name and phone number of the taxi driver who will pick you up to dorm from Airport
  • Don’t forget to stick your student visa in your passport and bring it with you
  • Bring enough money for some initial expenses (housing facilities, food) before you receive your stipend (minimum US$150 as a suggestion)
  • Bring some formal outfits for business events/ meetings
  • Just bring some thin coats because there is no winter in Binh Duong/ Ho Chi Minh
  • Some studying tools (notebooks, pens…) or you can buy more later
  • ID photos (3x4cm and 4x6cm) with white background and both ears exposure
  • Some instant foods in case you cannot find your proper food in the first period
  • Some quick medications (first-aid, fever, headache, digestion…)
  • Personal items/ Housing utilities that you can bring or you can buy them later
  • Bring your laptop with you. It is required for studying & getting lecture in the class room
  • Bring scientific calculator for some calculation subjects of this program
  • Anything else depends on your demand

Travel Insurance

This is an important benefit and also a must that you have to obtain before you depart to Hong Kong for study. Because we have scholars from different countries, we need you to contact local travel agencies to propose an appropriate travel insurance plan to provide comprehensive coverage for overseas medical assist, personal accident assist and travel assist over the period from the departure date for study to the date back to home country in each semester.

After Hinrich Foundation approves the plan, you will advance to buy the insurance plan and will be reimbursed later on.

When you arrive at the airport

The most convenient way to go to VGU dorm is to use the taxi arranged by VGU, so please note the University’s coordinator about your flight number and arrival time to arrange the driver to pick you up. The driver will hold the board with your name on it so you can recognize him. The taxi fare is about US$32.

Dorm check-in procedure

The taxi driver will take you directly to meet the dorm manager to check in and sign the housing contract. The manager will keep your passport for several days to register your legal stay with local authority.

The coordinator at HF will also connect you with Vietnamese students or senior scholars to support you upon your arrival such as buying housing facilities (mat, blanket, etc.), opening a local bank account and finding some places for food.

In case you cannot check into the dorm by the time you arrive, you can ask for the permission from the dorm management staff/ security guards to temporarily stay in the room of those Vietnamese students or senior scholars. They are always willing to help.

Dorm address:

Block M1-M7, Uni Town, Tran Quoc Toan Street, Hoa Phu Ward, Thu Dau Mot City, Binh Duong province.

When you arrive at the airport

The most convenient way to go to VGU dorm is to use the taxi arranged by VGU, so please note the University’s coordinator about your flight number and arrival time to arrange the driver to pick you up. The driver will hold the board with your name on it so you can recognize him. The taxi fare is about US$32.

Banking

Your stipend for each semester will be transferred to you via VGU. You should open a local bank account to receive and keep the stipend safe. You need to sign on VGU’s confirmation letter to acknowledge the amount you have received in each semester.

Recommended banks:

  • Vietcombank – Phu Chanh transaction office: Block H24-25-26, Dong Khoi Street, Hoa Phu Ward, Thu Dau Mot City, Binh Duong (near Lucky Square Convention & Event Centers).
  • BIDV – Hoa Phu transaction office: Block H27-28-29, Dong Khoi Street, Hoa Phu Ward, Thu Dau Mot City, Binh Duong.

You just need your passport to open the bank account in Vietnam. The process normally takes one week

Insurance

The University will buy the insurance for you in each academic year. You should check carefully with the University to well understand the insurance benefits to claim for compensation/ coverage if you are involved in any health problems, accidents and other cases.

The GPEM Program is structured in five module groups Production, Engineering, Management, Intercultural Communication and Special Profile.

In order to complete the program, you have to reach 120 credit points according to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS). An average of 30 credit points is achieved for each of the three first semesters, adding up to a total of 90 credit points.

Additionally, the summer internship has to be completed for 12 credit points. Towards the end of the program, a Master thesis has to be written (18 credit points).

After completing the GPEM-Program, you will be awarded with the degree certificate “Master of Science in Global Production Engineering” from the Technical University of Berlin.

You may have the possibility to participate in a competition for doing your Master Thesis in Berlin for a period of four months. In that case, you will choose one of the thesis topics assigned by TU Berlin, writing and presenting your proposal for the topic in front of a committee from VGU and TU Berlin. You will need to compete with other students choosing the same topic to win the scholarship to Berlin.

Here is the program structure with the modules for AY2017-2019:

Vietnamese-German University 2

Work-integrated learning: Internship in-between studies

Purpose

Work integrated learning (WIL) is the approach that Hinrich Foundation and its partners provide towards each scholarship. The WIL approach includes, besides academic degrees, professional work experiences between study periods and a career upon graduation. This equips scholars with not only a career-oriented study and practical skills for the international trade industry, but also best prepare them to add value to companies right when they start work.

Timeline

After finishing the semester 2 at VGU, you will go back to your home country to start the work placement in between studies with your sponsor company for 3 months.

You then will go back to Vietnam to finish the Year 2 of your studies.

You are encouraged to intern again at the sponsor’s factory to work on a practical industrial issue of the factory for your Master thesis during semester 4.

Internship Relocation Fee

Your sponsor company will cover the round trip airfares for your internship relocation. This includes the airfare to go from Vietnam to the assigned internship location (mostly your home country) to start the internship and then go back to Vietnam for the semester 3 after the internship.

If you want to travel somewhere outside the itinerary above, you need to discuss and get the agreement from the Sponsor. Extra costs incurred are at your expenses.

Visa Extension

In late June or early July of the first academic year (one month before your summer internship), you should contact the VGU coordinator to proceed your visa extension. This will help prevent you from going back and forth between Vietnam and your home country during your internship to extend the visa.

Housing

VGU and its establishments are located in Binh Duong New City. As its name, this is a newly developed complex with well-planned infrastructure, sparse population and high security.

The best thing about the life at VGU is low living cost compared to that of the neighbor city – Ho Chi Minh. The University also provides the students with some subsidy/ free services to create the best environment for both study and extra-curricular activities. However, it may be a bit inconvenient to go around if you do not have your own motorbike.

Unitown Dorm

You will share the room with 3-5 other students.

Facilities Services (fees included in the accommodation fee paid by the scholarship)

  • Water, Wifi, Security
  • Available furniture for each student: 1 chair, a part of 1 wardrobe, a bed (bunk bed), lights
  • A bathroom inside and balcony

Electricity cost is not included in the accommodation fee. You will share the total electricity cost with your roommates at the end of the Course.

2. Mr. Pham Thanh Toan – Student Affairs Officer at Dorm

3. Ms. Le Thi Hong Thu – Nurse
