Truth-Checking a Current PIE Information Article About Viet Nam

Face-to-face key to recruiting Vietnam Gen Z

This 8 July 2022 article by Helen Packer, which is basically an advertorial for INTO, contains some details and figures which are inaccurate. Whereas I agree with the thesis, i.e., the significance of face-to-face recruiting, I really feel compelled to supply these corrections in level/counterpoint style.

Level #1: Roughly 190,000 Vietnamese college students studied overseas through the 2019/20 educational 12 months and Vietnam is presently the fifth largest worldwide pupil supply marketplace for the US and the fourth largest for Australia.

Counterpoint #1: In line with my estimates, most of that are based mostly on official sources, there are an estimated 250,000 younger Vietnamese learning abroad, 213,291.

85% of whom are within the prime 10 host nations. These are, in descending order, South Korea, Japan, the USA, Taiwan, Australia, Canada, China, Germany, France, and Russia. (Let me know should you’d prefer to see the sources, most of that are official.).

The 190,000 determine hyperlinks to a 2021 US nation business information for training and coaching in Vietnam that features outdated statistics such the assertion that “Vietnam has 126,059 college students learning overseas in line with UNESCO.” Take a look at this web page and also you’ll see how a lot info is lacking, e.g., the US.

Level #2: The UK was the popular vacation spot amongst contributors, with 23% of respondents choosing it as their first selection and 56% naming it as one among their prime three, whereas Australia and the US adopted as the subsequent hottest locations

Counterpoint #2: This end result makes me marvel about how INTO chosen its survey pattern. In 2020/21, the UK hosted 2,675 Vietnamese college students, which implies it most likely ranks within the prime 15. Does the end result point out a coming sea change in abroad examine preferences or is the pattern skewed in favor of Vietnamese mother and father and college students who’ve a choice for the UK?

Australia has about 6,300 fewer Vietnamese college students than the US, in line with current updates.

I do agree with the end result that “Over half of contributors mentioned they have been additionally contemplating an Asian vacation spot, equivalent to Japan or South Korea.” East Asian nations now account for 66% of Vietnamese abroad enrollment among the many prime 10 host nations, a marked change over a decade in the past.

I used to be intrigued to learn that whereas “some 60% of scholars mentioned that assembly college representatives was helpful, [but] solely 28% believed that training brokers have been one of the vital sources of data.” A pattern I’ve noticed lately is extra Vietnamese college students making use of on to training establishments, bypassing training brokers. Having mentioned that, Vietnam remains to be very a lot an agent market.
