"International humanitarian action" course commenced
On September 4th, 2019, Faculty of International Studies, USSH collaborated with the Network on humanitarian action (NOHA) to launch the course "International humanitarian action".   The course lasted from September 4th to January 31st, 2019 with the participation of both Vietnamese and foreign students, including some students from America, Spain and Ireland. The students will be given lectures on such issues as the Humanitarian Leadership Programme, international relations in humanitarian affairs in responding to disasters-ASEAN experiences, anthropology and the cultural dimension of humanitarian action. Next, students will engage in an internship for three months and later write a report. The lecturers come from USSH and some international non-governmental organizations such as World Vision Vietnam, Oxfam Vietnam, and Vietnam Red Cross.   Speaking at the opening session, Prof. Dr Pham Quang Minh (USSH's Rector) sent his remarks to all the students, especially the foreign ones. He said as a member of VNU - Hanoi, USSH was promoting the strategy of internationalization, therefore the reception of foreign students was a prioritized task. The Rector hoped the foreign students will have a memorable time studying and doing research in Vietnam. He also invited them to the USSH's Opening Ceremony of the Academic year 2018-2019 held on September 27th.
