In November 2016, AUN’s delegates worked at UIT to assess the Information Systems program of ISF. After 2 working days of assessment, ISF achieved a score of 4.2. The Faculty was qualified for AUN-QA standard.
"This is a big step necessary for the Faculty to look back at a whole process of training, promote strengths, acknowledge our constraints and propose roadmaps of improvement. For the upcoming time, ISF will focus on a measuring system, analyzing students' academic results and the effectiveness of our training programs, enhancing international cooperation for improving the training quality, "said MSc. Nguyen Thi Kim Phung, Associate Dean.
The AUN Quality Assessment, enacted in 2004 by the ASEAN University Network, was aimed at promoting quality assurance among ASEAN universities and towards inter-credit activities from qualified programs between the universities in the Network.
