 5, Scientific Research of Students

Hue University has specific policies to encourage students to do scientific research. This activity is one of the most important means to upgrade training quality in the colleges. By doing scientific research, students approach new knowledge and new methods to solve problems of daily life. Also, students can apply their learning to a certain issue. This process helps students consolidate their knowledge, enhance their ability and experience to serve their study at colleges and their work in the future. From the angle of reforming teaching and studying style, attracting students to participate in scientific research is a decisive step.

The scientific research movement among students of Hue University is developing in both quality and quantity. Scientific conferences for students and young teaching staff are regularly organised. Hue University's students also obtained several important prizes like "Students with Scientific Research", "VIFOTEC" and other prizes in other national contests, such as: Mathematics Olympiad, Physics Olympiad and Informatics Olympiad. Most of the students that gained such prizes has found good environment to develop themselves in the society. Some of them became young lecturers of the affiliated colleges of Hue University. With this new environment, they have more chances to continue their research and to follow their teachers' footstep to become real scientists.

Hue University, together with its affiliated colleges, have already had right policies to create favorable mental and material conditions for students to familiarize with scientific research. In addition to a very limited research grant of the Ministry of Education and Training, each college has to take from its own budget a large sum of money to support students in developing their works, as well as to manage this activity and make it a regular and effective one.
