Below are the highlights of a guest post that I wrote for the ICEF Monitor, which described Vietnam as “a country that is increasingly seen as one of the most promising emerging markets for international student recruitment.”

  • The Vietnamese government has removed certification requirements for education agents
  • The move aims to reduce government bureaucracy in the Vietnamese industry and open up greater consumer choice
  • However, the change to a more open marketplace for education agents will likely also place a greater burden on both students and foreign institutions in terms of identifying credible and qualified agents

  1. This is bad news for agents.  Now the schools will be getting pelted and peppered by "agents" who are Vietnamese and who are unethical.


    This also adds "noise" to the consumer market who can be confused as it is.
