Affirming the brand name of “American University in Vietnam” with the training program following model of liberal arts education, Tan Tao University (TTU) provides learners with a comprehensive knowledge base, so that after graduating, students can work well in many areas.

Teaching by the syllabus of Rice University (United States)

Gillis Hall, the proud of Tan Tao University, is designed following the architecture of Rice University, United States.

With many Vietnamese students studying in a prestigious school, advanced education programs at United States universities is a dream. Many students paid tens, even hundreds of thousands of dollars to study abroad. Nowadays, students still have all those experiences when choosing to study at TTU.

TTU is a non-profit university with the training program following model of liberal arts education, taught by Rice University curriculum. Since then, generations of TTU students are learners with comprehensive knowledge base in various fields such as social sciences and humanities, natural sciences before moving into a major. Liberal arts courses account for 25% of the overall curriculum to train students to self-study, self-adapt and improve themselves in new environments.

TTU students will study 10 core courses to supplement their knowledge before starting their specialized subjects. Particularly, in the School of Medicine, the curriculum will be distributed year by year, with the bilingual English-Vietnamese training program, which will create the best conditions for the future doctor generation to work in both domestic and international environment. Besides, one thing that is special at TTU is that after the first year of study, students (except school of medicine) have the right to change their majors if they really find their favorite major though it is not their first choice. That gives students more opportunities, instead of having to spend a year to study the subject of their favorite. In addition, students will study 10 elective courses in other disciplines to supplement their knowledge so that students can meet different jobs after graduating.

Students are really interested when their creativity are stimulated. They are actively learning about their field of study as well as related fields, “Thinking out of the box”.
