“UQ in Vietnam” is an exciting and innovative Work Integrated Learning project by The University of Queensland’s School of Journalism and Communication.

Ten students are visiting Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang, Hoi An and Hue for 10 days, reporting on exciting social and scientific projects where UQ scientists and researchers are working in partnership with Vietnamese universities and other learning institutions.

At the same time, the students are developing their skills as radio, television, print and photo journalists.

In fact, it’s not just a wonderful opportunity to experience life in a foreign country where English is not the dominant language, it’s also an assessable subject, JOUR3401. So our students are being marked on the quality and originality of their portfolio of stories.

They are accompanied by journalism lecturer and project manager Bruce Woolley and tutors Liss Fenwick and Lucy-Ellen Steadman.

The trip is funded in part by the Australia Government’s  Department of Education as well as the School of Journalism and Communication and the students themselves.

We welcome your feedback on our work!
