Opportunity Description

While you study away from Cornell this fall semester, remain connected to the Cornell community and become immersed in student life at VinUniversity.

  • Keep on track at Cornell with 12-15 credits online, offered asynchronously
  • Take one course with local students at VinUni
  • Enjoy access to VinUni student facilities, libraries, and activities
  • Check out the beautiful VinUni campus and learn more

Housing and Meals

Being part of a living and learning environment is a core, and therefore required, aspect of all study away options.

Study Away students at VinUni may choose between two housing options:

  • Campus housing: Shared apartments or dorms on VinUni campus
  • Off campus apartments: Single, double, or triple occupancy apartments close to campus

Meals are not included, but are available in cafeterias on campus.

Health and Safety

VinUni will comply with local, regional, and national health and safety requirements.
