Over the years, the university has continuously strived in academic development, ensuring students are exposed to internationally standard programs, graduating with excellent expertise and proficiency in English, confidently applying to international corporations, and becoming global citizens. To achieve this, the university has strengthened partnerships with prestigious universities and educational organizations, among which Pearson has always been a strategic partner of NIIE. In the past, both parties had cooperated and achieved particular successes. This collaboration hopes to open new directions, bringing practical values to NIIE students.

NIIE has always been essential to Pearson’s vision and mission of developing foreign languages and building lifelong learning in Asia, particularly in Vietnam. In terms of expertise, Pearson has decades of experience in education, collaborating and developing training programs, and providing resources to nearly 200 universities worldwide. Beyond languages, Pearson offers short- and long-term courses in professional and soft skills suitable for university students and working professionals. Additionally, Pearson is a pioneer in applying artificial intelligence in education, aiding in program improvement and enabling educators to effectively track students’ progress, promptly identify errors, and provide timely solutions.
In this collaboration, Pearson will partner with NIIE in activities such as Developing English training programs based on the Global Scale of English (GSE) framework; Utilizing textbooks and digital learning resources; Employing internationally recognized English proficiency tests developed by Pearson with most recent AI-based automatic scoring technology; Evaluating and accrediting the English teaching and training programs; aiming for Pearson’s GSE Silver Partner School Recognition.
This will undoubtedly be a significant milestone in NIIE’s educational development journey, promising numerous advantages for students, especially in English learning: Experiencing a dynamic, creative learning environment; high-quality training programs and materials to develop natural and flexible foreign language skills; meeting communication needs in life and work. Particularly, NIIE students will have the “privilege” of accessing a diverse knowledge base from Pearson’s internationally standard resource system, enhancing professional capabilities and opening doors to becoming global citizens.
