FLC Group on Sunday started construction on FLC University in the northeastern province of Quang Ninh’s Ha Long City.

Covering an area of 50ha, the VND4 trillion (US$172.7 million) project would start to enroll around 600 students by the end of 2020.

FLC University was approved by the Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc for establishment on June 3, 2019 under the private non-profit university model.

The project would be invested in two phases including training of some 2,000 students in 2022-25 and another 10,000 in 2035.

It is expected that the university would provide training in 14 subjects including tourism, travel and tourism service management, hotel management and aviation. This would be the first university complex under international standards connecting smart urban area ecosystems and resorts in Viet Nam.

In addition, the university would also be associated with some international universities to provide bachelor and master's degrees.

FLC University was built with consultancy from Australian specialists with a flexible lecture hall, three-floor library integrated with e-learning system and dormitory area for 1,000 students.

Speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony, Phung Xuan Nha, minister of Education and Training, asked Quang Ninh Province to continue providing favourable conditions for FLC Group to attract high quality lecturers. FLC should provide training to ensure high quality human resources to the province.

FLC Group also signed memorandums of understanding and agreements with both local and foreign education and training organisations such as RMIT Australia University, Ha Noi National University and West of England University.

FLC is one of the leading multi-sector groups in Viet Nam with outstanding development in the past few years. The university establishment would be a strong step for the group to enter into the education and training sector, said Prof. Ray Priest from the West of England University.

Earlier, on July 28, FLC Group also started construction of its Bamboo Airways Aviation Training Centre in Binh Dinh Province. — VNS
