Transnational education preference among families mapped

Research has indicated that Vietnamese families have a “clear preference” for international and transnational education (TNE) opportunities over local alternatives, writes Viggo Stacey for The PIE News.

The Vietnam Voices: Consumer attitudes towards transnational education in Vietnam report by Acumen, part of Sannam S4 Group, sought the view of some 1,000 parents with both higher disposable income levels and children between eight and 22 years old in the Southeast Asian country. It found that 85% of responding parents showed an openness for their children to enrol on TNE programmes.

Some 48% said study overseas or education at an official in-country branch campus was a preference at the higher education level. A further 44% preferred international programmes taught fully or partially by Vietnamese colleges or university. This is compared to 34% of parents who said they preferred local programmes taught by Vietnamese institutions.
