Meeting with students participating in the Internship program in Australia

There are many students from the University of Agriculture and Forestry of Ho Chi Minh City, Can Tho University, Quang Nam University, Vietnam National University of Agriculture.. have registered to participate in the program but because of geographical conditions are quite far so they cannot come to meet face-to-face at Thai Nguyen University of Agriculture and Forestry. Therefore, all information is provided to them through the school's implementation department. After the meeting, many of them were accepted to practice at the farm and soon have a visa application in time for the flight at the end of 2017. Most importantly, to adapt to the pace of life and work in Australia, students need to continue to practice English and health to have 12 months of successful experience in "kangaroo country".
