UPDATE OUR LATEST INFORMATION


Health and Safety
At SE Vietnam, we care about our students’ health and safety as much as their families do. We take the responsibility of providing fruitful and safe programs to make sure that students can study, experience fully and at the same time stay healthy.
 
INTERNATIONAL INSURANCE
 
International Insurance is strictly required for all students. Basically, the insurance covers students for accidents and illness during the program.  In case students decide to purchase the insurance themselves in home country, they must provide us with purchased insurance’s information for better following-up. Please read this article on Travel Insurance: What should you look for? before ordering the insurance service. In case students would like SE Vietnam to purchase the insurance for them, we will help them purchase the service from a Vietnamese insurance company and provide them with insurance details. Please read this article on “Insurance for international students in Vietnam” for further information.
 
PRE-DEPARUTRE SUPPORT
 
The student keeps close contact with our program coordinator before the departure. The coordinator will provide direct consultancy and reply to any inquiries. We also prepare a “Pre-departure Guide book” for the student to study about the country, to prepare a go-abroad checklist and record some emergency contacts. This guide book would be revised every month for updates.
 
ORIENTATION
 
Health & Safety issues are carefully addressed in the orientation session before any program starts. SE Vietnam staff would highlight local health and safety issues as well as emergency procedures. The orientation will be conducted by both SE Vietnam and the host school/company
 
 
24/7 EMERGENCY CONTACT
 
Emergency contact is provided to students before their departure so that they can share with their parents or other close people at home. We deeply understand the worries of students and their dear ones during the far-from-home trips, so we are happy to help them feel safe with our care. The emergency contact person has a network of local contacts such as hospital, police, embassy and the students’ neighbors so as to quickly react to unexpected situations.
 
SAFETY TIPS & RESOURCES
 
Students should avoid:
  • Staying out after midnight or after a local curfew
  • Being in a high-crime area
  • Staying alone in an isolated area
  • Sleeping in an unlocked room
  • Eating food with unknown origin or without being guided by the local
  • Being on a motorbike without wearing helmet
 
Students should pay attention to:
  • What is advised by SE Vietnam staff and the local buddies
  • Local law, rules, curfew and warnings
  • The address of your accommodation and emergency contact
  • Other sources of help around you (phones, stores, police, etc.)

Ask me






I was extremely satisfied with my internship in Vietnam experience in general and the service that was providedby SE Vietnam in particular. The staffs always listened to my worries, and they tried to keep my safety and that really relieves my anxiety being in a foreign country.

Take every opportunity that arises – teaching language after work, meals with companies, travel as much as possible…these really made the experience much better.
I can describe my internship in Vietnam in two words: diverse and interesting. Big thanks to SE Vietnam all their helps and supports, I really appreciated!

I felt very satisfied with the service SE Vietnam provided for my Nursing Internship at Ho Chi Minh Hopspital of Orthopedics and Rehabilitation. I was clear about the rules and expectations required of me during my placement.


SANDRA GOMEZ VEGA

My nursing internship at the Orthopedic & Rehabilitation Hospital is a treasure experience that I will never forget. I appreciate SE Vietnam and highly recommend this internship to anyone who is interested since it’s a great way of meeting new friends, experiencing new culture, food and language
