Vietnamese students graduate from Israel’s agricultural MSc course

Six Vietnamese students have completed an agricultural MSc programme, the fourth course, carried out under cooperation between the Arava International Centre for Agriculture Training (AICAT) and Tel Aviv University (TAU) of Israel.

A graduation ceremony was held for the Vietnamese students and seven others from Nigeria, Kenya, Rwanda and Uganda on February 19.

In an interview with the Vietnam News Agency, Professor Nir Ohad from Tel Aviv University applauded efforts made by Vietnamese students during the course and expressed his hope that with knowledge gained in Israel, they will contribute to Vietnam’s agriculture.

Launched in 2014, the programme offers a good opportunity for Vietnamese students to access Israel’s modern agricultural knowledge and skills. Currently, there are four centres participating in the enrollment of students in Vietnam, including AICATA, Ramat Negev, Sdot Negev and Agrostudies.
