Higher education accreditation in Vietnam: current status and challenges, and possible lessons from Australia

For better integration to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) higher education, accreditation of Vietnam’s higher education is under a new reform by fully applying the accreditation frameworks designed by the ASEAN University Network – Quality Assurance (AUN-QA) for all institutions and programs. In this presentation, Associate Professor Hao aims to introduce current approaches and also challenges in higher education accreditation in Vietnam under that reform, and possible lessons from Australia, especially the self-accreditation mechanism, which are expected to enhance the sustainability of program accreditation in Vietnam.
