Hue Vietnam, Destination Features

Our programme in Hue, Vietnam is off to a flying start having opened only a few months ago.

We've been innundated with photos from our students that capture the character of Vietnam and its people, as well as their experience on placement.

Enjoy the best of the bunch below.
