The mission of CIET is to improve the human condition through educational development by sharing the expertise and experience at Hanoi National University of Education (HNUE), and it’s educational partners in Vietnam and around the world, through involvement in culturally sensitive, sustainable, international development programs.


Consistent with both the stated goals of the HNUE relating to internationalization, and with the University mandates to provide service to the wider community, CIET provides a infrastructure through which HNUE can participate in meaningful, sustainable, international development activities. CIET recognizes the benefits to all participants - both at home and abroad - which result from the rich and meaningful relationships that develop through international programs. The dual purposes of service to the international community and mutual growth through cultural exchange constitute the fundamental reasons for engagement in international projects. CIET exists to provide a vehicle through which members can pursue service and scholarly activities by fostering, supporting and developing the HNUE involvement in the global community.

The Center for International Education and Training is the flagship of international initiatives and activities at HNUE. In addressing its mission, CIET supports and develops HNUE commitment to its educational goals and responsibilities in a global context.
