The Vietnamese-German University (VGU), which had its official opening celebrations on the 10th September 2008 in Ho Chi Minh City, is a Vietnamese state university. In its academic and administrative structures it follows the German model and standards. This takes place in close collaboration with well-known German universities, including TU Darmstadt. In February 2009, they organized themselves into the “VGU Consortium” which will provide long term support to VGU. Over the next few years, there will be a joint effort to develop and offer a comprehensive catalogue of courses and programs leading to Bachelor’s, Master’s and Ph.D. degrees.
