In the meantime, after studying in VNU for three years and finishing all practice hours and credit-hour requirements, the students from all departments of the College of Tourism, Hospitality and Management can choose to go abroad to Southern Cross University in Australia for one year. After finishing the study of these both parts, they could obtain two bachelor diplomas from both universities.”, President Zhunag Chang also said. Furthermore, he also emphasized that “besides the ‘3+1 Double Bachelor’ Joint Academic System, both universities also plan another ‘3+1+1 Bachelor plus Master’ system. These two Joint Academic Systems not only helps students shorten their time spent in studying in the university, but also helps them explore their learning breadth and depth”. Moreover, Vanung University is also going to talk with SCU teamed with Airways Aviation about “3+1+1 Trainee Pilot Training Program”. That is, besides the “3+1 Double Degree” Joint Academic System, students could attend one more year of flight training courses to obtain commercial aviation license.
