RMIT International University Vietnam was today awarded its second consecutive Top Trade Services Award for excellence in education services, in a ceremony held at the Hanoi Opera House.

The prestigious awards, conducted by the Ministry of Industry and Trade in association with Newspaper of Industry and Trade, acknowledge excellence of enterprises operating in Vietnam in the trade and services sector.

The Top Trade Award comes less than a week after RMIT Vietnam received its sixth consecutive annual Golden Dragon Award.

The Golden Dragon Awards, conducted by the Vietnam Economic Times in cooperation with the Ministry of Investment and Planning, were presented last weekend in a ceremony also at the Hanoi Opera House.

"All at RMIT feel deeply honoured to be consistently recognised by both the Government and enterprises for the quality of our services to education in Vietnam" said RMIT Vietnam's President, Professor Andrew Scown.

"To receive such an award is a wonderful reflection on the dedication of our academic staff as well as the commitment of our students to achieving success."

RMIT Vietnam has received many awards since establishing a campus in Ho Chi Minh City in 2001 and another in Hanoi in 2004. More than 5000 students now attend RMIT Vietnam, receiving English language-based education in a growing range of academic programs geared towards meeting the needs of international employers and industries.
