Welcome message from DAV’s President



Welcome to the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam!


Having undergone 60 years of establishment and development with unceasing endeavours, the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam (formerly known as University of Foreign Affairs) has recorded significant achievements.

In the field of training, the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam has implemented numerous programs on international relations with a trend in multidisciplinary training from tertiary level (standard, high-quality, joint training programs) to masters and doctoral levels.  Graduates from the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam are always highly appreciated for their strong foreign language skills, expertise and their adaptability to diverse working environments and the globalization context.

Annually, the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam organizes hundreds of training courses that aim to equip the knowledge of foreign policies and international relations to public servants from various ministries, agencies and localities, improving skills and capacity of the employees working in diplomatic services, especially in the context that Vietnam is proactively and actively executing the extensive international integration strategy.

Being endowed with rich experience in conducting research and effective international cooperation with over 80 institutes and universities, at home and abroad, the Institute for Foreign Policy and Strategic Studies and the Institute of East Sea Studies are the two leading think tanks on foreign policies and have helped develop the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam into one of the most prestigious policy advisory entities in Vietnam and the region.

Preparing for the upcoming 60th founding anniversary (1959-2019), staff, lecturers, researchers and students/learners are constantly striving to build ‘the common home’ Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam into one of the leading institutions that provide world-class training, research and international cooperation in international relations and diplomacy of Vietnam as well as of the entire region.


Respectfully yours,

Dr. Nguyen Vu Tung,

President of the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam
