On August 13, 2012, the eighth batch of students of the Master of Arts in Applied Linguistics Program, jointly provided by Curtin University and SEAMEO RETRAC, celebrated their graduation.
Enrolled in this intake were 71 teachers of English from Vietnam and the USA. The program has so far recruited 423 candidates. The ninth and tenth intakes are now in progress and expected to graduate in October 2013. This is a successful joint training program, effectively contributing to the development of human resource development for Vietnam’s education in general, and for English instruction in Vietnam in particular.
