Located in the Thanh Xuan district, 30 minutes from the historic center of Hanoi, it boasts a modern campus that covers an area of hectares in the green.

Despite the rich and lively multicultural environment, HANU retains its national identity and aims to form citizens with innovative and critical mindsets ready to face global challenges.

The care and commitment of teachers and staff, especially towards international students, are one of the values most felt by HANU.
The teachers, trained in prestigious universities such as Harvard University (USA), Queensland University (Australia), the University of Leeds (US), the University of Louvain (Belgium), Indiana University (United States), the Asian Institute of Technology (Thailand), have significant experience in international organizations, multinationals and embassies.

The Faculty has about 300 students either from Vietnam or from other countries (the most represented ones: the United States, Australia, Cuba, Austria, Venezuela, Ukraine).
