“I took SUD course at VGU as another step in my career of urban planning as the practical work required me more knowledge. It was also a hard decision because it was a full-time program and I had to leave my work for 2 years, but it turns out to be a good decision as SUD program worth it!
Talking about SUD, the biggest impression of mine is that all the professors in the course are respectable. They are all the head professors in their field, not because of that make the class’s atmosphere serious but very open and friendly. We had interesting classes with lots of discussion, arguments and laughs. From that, we not only gained knowledge but also friendship between classmates and enrich our professional circle. Besides, all staff at VGU is helpful and they tries their best to support the students. All of that make the time VGU unique and unforgettable, after the course, we not only have the new academic title, but the new attitude professional life, keep us passionate in the field of sustainable development. Wish all the best VGU and especially, SUD program!”

“One of the most valuable things that I learnt in my 2 years studying Sustainable Urban Development at VGU is the applicability of what was in the text book to reality. I had a wonderful time with the knowledgeable and devoting professors and TA’s [aka Teaching Assistants]. VGU has been successful in creating a professional working environment where students interacted with instructors continuously during the courses. Besides that, I enjoyed so much the extracurricular activities involving field visiting that VGU organized for every course. These activities help us visualize urbanization through real life and exciting experiences instead of just through tedious textbook theories. Graduating with a degree in Sustainable Urban Development opens even more job opportunities in academic researching and teaching at Universities. Last but not least, I appreciate the devoting staff in the management department who did their best to give us amazing experiences during the time we studied at VGU.”
