The Vietnamese Student Association in the UK (SVUK), the official representatives for around 8,000 Vietnamese students from all levels of study in the UK, was founded in February 2005 with the recognition and support of the Vietnamese Embassy in the UK and the British Council. Our main aims are to support Vietnamese students in the UK, prospective students, and Vietnamese student societies in universities/cities in the UK, enhance the unity within Vietnamese student community as well as to promote Vietnamese culture in such a highly diverse and multi-cultural environment in the UK. Since founded, SVUK has established relationship with various organisations such as the Britain – Vietnam Friendship society, the Vietnamese media, Vietnamese and British companies, other student associations in the UK and other countries. We have also organised or supported various influential events such as THANG LONG - HA NOI 1000 Year Anniversary show (Memory of Love - Ky Uc Tinh Yeu), VOICE UP 2008-09, 2007-2008, SVUK FOOTBALL CUP, SVUK New Year Party 2005, SVUK Boat Party Summer, SVUK Volunteer Students Summer 2005 (Hanoi, Vietnam), “Welcoming Dawn” show (Hanoi, Vietnam), SVUK Live Show 2006 “Glamour” (London), L’ Élégance 2007.

Our official website (before was is a well-known address for any Vietnamese students already in the UK or ones interested in studying in the UK. The website has served well the needs of Vietnamese students, providing the unique means of connecting members of this big community and a useful source providing and sharing information regarding career, academic issues, and life experiene in the UK. In a very short period of time, the website will also be a connection between employers and potential graduates. SVUK will closely coordinate with prospective employers so that the website will then not only work as an official page of SVUK and a community forum but also a place devoting to career and job opportunities for all Vietnamese graduates/postgraduates in the UK.
