RMIT International University Vietnam has been honoured with a Certificate of Merit from the Minister of Education and Training, Prof. Dr. Pham Vu Luan, in recognition of 10 years of outstanding achievement.

The Certificate was presented this week to RMIT University's Vice Chancellor and President, Professor Margaret Gardner. The Certificate was presented by Mrs. Nguyen Thanh Huyen, Deputy Director of International Cooperation Department, Ministry of Education and Training.

The Certificate has been given to RMIT "for its outstanding achievements in the development and operations of the University on the occasion of the 10th anniversary 2001-2011".

Professor Gardner said today that she was "delighted and deeply honoured" to be recognised in such a way.

"The staff of RMIT in Vietnam have worked very hard over the past 10 years to build excellent education and successful graduates, with strong support from the University as a whole. It is a great honour that these efforts have been recognised by the Minister," Professor Gardner said.

"It makes us more determined than ever to live up to the standards set to date, so that we can meet the challenges of the next 10 years just as effectively."

RMIT Vietnam's President, Professor Merilyn Liddell, said the Certificate was an honour that would be shared by a team of more than 500 Vietnamese and foreign staff.

"In receiving this honour, we know it must be shared by many staff - both past and present - who have made very important contributions to the success and reputation we have come to enjoy in Vietnam," she said. "We honour them all."
