Vietnam Exchange

Do you want to study at the no. 1 Business School in Vietnam? Join our exchange program at Foreign Trade University in Ho Chi Minh for a GAP-year or one or two semesters!

Why study in Vietnam?

Vietnam is one of the world’s most rapidly growing metropolitan areas. Besides that, it's a perfect destination for a study abroad. Because of its central location in South-East Asia, Vietnam is a popular destination for travelers. Ho Chi Minh is located in the southern end of Vietnam and was, compared to cities in the North, more influenced by western cultures. Besides the expansive and luxury shopping malls, skyscrapers and rooftop bars, Ho Chi Minh is still home to many remnants of the Vietnam war and historical landmarks.

Vietnam is voted as one of the cheapest countries in Asia. For this reason, most of our students never cook their own food but eat the local street food instead. Street food in Vietnam is delicious and will cost you around $0,90 per meal. If you prefer having western meals, it might cost you $1,70. 

Even though Ho Chi Minh is a very busy and chaotic city, it’s a safe place to travel, live and study. Just trust your gut feelings and don’t be too naïve. If you follow the ‘If you don’t do it at home, then don’t do it in Ho Chi Minh’-rule, you will be totally fine!
