      The school was established under Decision No. 976/QĐ-TCCB, December 31st, 2007 of Thai Nguyen University Director. As an institution located in the strategic-midland and mountainous areas, we are well aware of the difficulties, as well as our great roles, responsibilities and noble missions. We believe that, with the determination of the Party Committee, the Board of management, the Trade Union Executive Committee, Youth Union Executive Committee together with the sharing and helping of colleagues, domestic and foreign business organizations, and especially the consensus of all staff, lecturers and students in the School with the spirit of "Solidarity, Dynamism and Creativity", School of Foreign Languages ​​will definitely overcome the challenges and difficulties in order to become increasingly stable and developed.  We are attempting to deserve the position and the role within Thai Nguyen University as well as in the region and to meet the increasing requirement for foreign languages ​​from the society in the trend of national integration.  

     Up to now, the School of Foreign Languages has gradually gained an impressive record of achievement. Currently, the school has more than 160 members of staff and 6 departments specializing in English, Chinese, Russian, French, Oriental Languages and Cultures and Basic Science. There are more than 3000 students in a range of academic monolingual, bilingual and pedagogical specializations majoring in English, Chinese, Russian, French and Korean. Also, the school offers the following modes of study: full-time, part-time, training on demands, nominated training, and second diploma. Furthermore, believed and assigned by the Ministry of Education and Training and Thai Nguyen University to take the responsibility to participate in the National Foreign Language Project 2020 from early stage (2011), the School has organized training for more than 1000 English teachers from high schools in 10 northeastern and northwestern provinces.

Besides, there is also a team of foreign experts from the US, France, China, and Korea, with the average number of 10 experts per year, participating in teaching.
    The above achievements are the first bricks which are an important foundation for the development of the School of Foreign Languages ​​today as well as the University of Foreign Languages ​​later. With a team of highly qualified, enthusiastic and dedicated employees, we are committed to build a healthy educational environment, open working mechanism, and talents appreciation.
