TMC Academy and Foreign Trade University Collaboration Comes to Fruition

Following the dialogue session and MOU signing ceremony held in our campus early this year, TMC Academy’s international collaboration with Foreign Trade University (FTU), Vietnam, has come to fruition. FTU is a top-ranking public university in Vietnam and has gained extensive achievements in providing talented graduates to the Vietnamese economy.

The programme agreement between both schools provides FTU students the opportunity to study in Singapore during the last 2 years of their bachelor degree studies. The student will first complete the Higher Diploma programme with a 6 months industrial attachment. Upon successful completion, the student will proceed to the final year degree, delivered by TMC Academy in Singapore, and awarded by University of Northampton, our university partner in the UK.
