The tuition fee policy is applied according to the different types of programs as well as chosen courses, but nationalities. In other words, international students pay the same fee as the local students do. Furthermore, other fees such as dormitory fee, admission fee, etc. paid by international students and local students are equally paid. With such attractive policy, plus the competitive costs of living, TDTU could provide an affordable higher education that both Vietnamese students and international students can approach.
TDTU is marked with several campuses located in different areas of Vietnam such as Khanh Hoa, Bao Loc, Ca Mau and Ho Chi Minh City. Known as the headquarter of the university, Tan Phong campus placed in the heart of District 7, Ho Chi Minh City is the main campus among the others and it is also the first destination opted by most local students as it provides a variety of over forty courses as well as sufficient equipment for learning and teaching activities. International students who are admitted to the undergraduate programs will schedule your study in this campus as well. Though it cannot be compared to Khanh Hoa campus with brilliant sea view, or Bao Loc campus with beautiful mountain view, plus the hustle and bustle of the city outside; however, days in and days out at Tan Phong campus deserves learning environment and student life with garden view, green cover, silent atmosphere, and clean space. Significantly, the students are allowed to have an exchange semester to another campus in the training program.
Not only the local students but the international students also wear uniforms for school. As a rule, on Mondays and Thursdays, all students and staffs are recognized with TDTU traditional outfit. Male students appear elegantly with trousers and white shirt while females look gracefully with ‘ao dai’ in pink, the one that can be easily captured in other places in Vietnam. Why don’t you join us for such interesting experience?
