Today,gossips and some personal opinions,which are known as “common sense”, are one of the most social aspect of our life.It can impact us in a good or bad way.One typical example is the common sense about our University-IU.As a result, there are many people underestimate IU and its student.So why and how to fix it?
Firstly,IU has some disadvantages such as:
- High tuition fee than standard institutes(59 usd/credit)
- Low requirements for entrance exam(13,5/30 for twinning program and 17,5/30 for IU program) =>People usually imply that low-quality-institutes recruit students who had low perfomance in university entrance exam.
- IU was founded later than the other universities(in National Univesities) =>Some people don’t even know the existence of IU.
- Studying programs of IU are in English.This is not a disadvantages but the problem is:It is diffent from most of other institutions (especially in National University)
On the other hand,we have to admit that learning in English is a good way to prepare for future.Students will be ready to work in a interracial environment.However,it’s different and differences are not easy to be accepted in society.
English is important in interracial working environment
Secondly,people imply from those disadvantages to assume some negative commonsense knowledge.Most of students from IU are considered to be rich,bad perfromance in studying and party-addicted( from a survey on 20th November,2009)
In fact,paying high tuition fee means that IU students have investment for future.It is not because IU students are rich and use money inefficient.The reason is:
- Research shows that 1/3 post-graduated students don’t have their desired job (vnexpress.net).Whereas,88% post-graduated IU students are employed(hcmiu.edu.vn) =>IU students have better job opportunities.(If they study hard)
- There are no such things like a “free lunch”: The more you pay,the better facilities you have.
Thirdly,nowadays,we can see many institude named “international” and some of them have low teaching quality.Students pay lots of money for nothing.As a result,IU reputation will be affected negatively.
This incorrect commonsense will be denied in near future because “Educational renovation is nowadays a global trend. Vietnam education, especially college education must put a step forward in the process of renovation and integration“.Human behaviors or personal opinions are not easy to change and we have to prove patiently like the way Gallilei proved his theories.
