A/Prof Tran Van Dien and Prof Annabelle Duncan with the Advanced Standing Agreement

UNE is expanding its presence in Asia with this week’s signing of an agreement with Thai Nguyen University Of Agriculture and Forestry (TUAF).

Following a visit by UNE Vice-Chancellor Annabelle Duncan to TUAG a few weeks ago, the leaders of the Vietnamese university visited UNE to formalise an Advance Standing Agreement under which UNE will provide support to TUAF so that TUAF can undertake curriculum development of units for a Bachelor and Master of Agriculture Resources Economics.

In return, UNE will provide advanced standing for TUAF students to study in Armidale.

UNE began establishing relationships with South-East Asian countries in the 1960s, and has extensive alumni and ongoing research partnerships across the region.
