Vietnamese university students increase rapidly, but university lecturers do not increase accordingly.
Professor Nguyen Viet Thinh, President of the Hanoi University of Education, said that the school has to recruit lecturers monthly, because a lot of lecturers leave for training courses or have a break. Candidates come from different sources. Some of them are excellent graduates from the Hanoi University of Education themselves. Others are the lecturers of other schools, or overseas Vietnamese students, who have finished foreign training courses, or scientific researchers.
Demand high, income low teaching jobs in Vietnam
The Hanoi University of Mining and Geology every year recruits nearly 100 lecturers for different majors, but it never finds enough lecturers.
