Israel studies to be included in the training programs of USSH

On June 15th, 2021, Prof. Dr. Hoang Anh Tuan (Rector of USSH) and representative of the Office for Cooperation and Development had an online meeting via Zoom with Mr. Nadav Eshcar, Ambassador of Israel to. 
At the meeting, Ambassador Nadav Eshcar expressed his desire to begin the teaching and study of Israel at universities in Vietnam. The proposal is part of the Israeli government's plan to expand the education of Israel in Asia. In Vietnam itself, the Israeli Embassy in Hanoi has chosen University of Social Sciences and Humanities (USSH) as an address to implement this idea.

Prof. Dr. Hoang Anh Tuan thanked Ambassador Nadav Eshcar for his trust and said that USSH has the proper means and capabilities to cooperate with the Embassy in implementing the idea. USSH's Faculty of Oriental Studies has ample experiences with country studies programs such as Korean Studies, Japanese Studies, Chinese Studies, Indian Studies, and Southeast Asian Studies. The addition of Israel studies would prove to be practical and provide opportunities for students of the University to expand their knowledge.

As such, the two sides discussed a number of preliminary options for cooperation such as organizing short-term courses on Israeli language, culture and history taught by of teachers and experts from universities in Israel; holding exchange events, and cultural, art exhibitions to promote the people and country of Israel; and cooperating to seek for scholarships in Israel for students of the University. After getting positive results from the initial activities, the University and the Embassy of Israel will step by step build a major in Israel studies at the Faculty of Oriental Studies.

University of Social Sciences and Humanities has cooperated with the Israeli Embassy in Vietnam to organize many activities such as the Remembrance Day for the victims of the Holocaust every year since 2017.
