Welsh higher education representatives present at World Bank consultation event in Vietnam


Two high level representatives of Welsh higher education have attended a World Bank consultation event in Vietnam, providing input and expertise to support the development of the Vietnamese Government's Higher Education Masterplan for HE.

The Masterplan will cover university governance, autonomy, quality, research funding and relevance to business and the World Bank is keen to involve international partners in the development process as it moves forward. Following the mission visit to Vietnam in November, the World Bank invited Welsh higher education to send representatives to the consultation event.

UWTSD's Dr Jane Davidson, Pro Vice-Chancellor for External Engagement and Sustainability and Rob Humphreys gave presentations of an overview of the Welsh system from the viewpoint of both the legislator and those being legislated.

The continued  long-term engagement with Vietnam is part of Global Wales' strategic programme of work, with the countries establishing a system-to-system relationship, collaboration in research and opportunities for staff and student exchange.
