How will Vietnamese students be affected by US immigration rules?

The news that the US and other western countries are tightening immigration policies may force Vietnamese students to rethink their education plans.

Nguyen Phuong Anh, who graduated from Franklin & Marshall University and has a full scholarship at Georgetown University, believes that the new policy won’t have negative impact on Vietnamese students.

“With the separation of powers, these decisions need to be approved by the bicameral chamber. In addition, the power of the states in the US is big, while most of the universities are privately run, and they attach importance to the role and contribution of international students,” Anh said.

The 9X generation student believes that policies related to education pursued by the states in the US and universities will not be affected.

The news that the US and other western countries are tightening immigration policies may force Vietnamese students to rethink their education plans.

However, the new policies may affect students’ futures after they finish four-year study in the US.

Vu Tuan Minh, a new student at Rice University, thinks the policies would make it difficult for international students to stay in the US and look for jobs after graduation.

It would be much more difficult to obtain an H1B visa in the future than now.

Vietnamese students and parents need to think about their goals of studying in the US. Do students want to study in the US just to improve knowledge or do they want to stay in the US after school?

He said that only a few students with outstanding abilities can stay and work in a competitive working environment in the US.

Many Vietnamese students hope they can stay in the US and get good jobs. Some believe the US offers better job opportunities. Others want to work in the US to get money to pay back for their studies.

Anh studies in the US to improve her knowledge. “Staying in the US is not always a good choice in all cases,” she said. Many friends of Anh’s have returned to Vietnam after finishing school.

Vo Tuan Son, a Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam graduate, now works for an UN agency, andvbelieves that studying overseas is not the only way to develop. Son graduated from a school in Vietnam and found a good job with high pay and working conditions./.
