Before 1975, the university was known in the name Institute of Saigon, established in 1949 and later was given priority in development in 1955. After the country liberation (in 1975), the Faculty of Letters and Faculty of Sciences of the Institute of Saigon were merged into Ho Chi Minh University in 1977, the largest training centre for basic research in the South of Vietnam.

In 1996, the needs of further development and expansion made Ho Chi Minh University segregated into two institutions, University of Social Sciences & Humanities (USSH) and University of Natural Sciences, as two member institutions of Vietnam National University-Ho Chi Minh City (VNU-HCM).

Vietnam National University-Ho Chi Minh City is envisioned to be “a high quality, high tech and multi-disciplinary training centre for undergraduate and graduate studies and a well- qualified research hub in Vietnam’s higher education system, contributing to and meeting the demands for socio-economic development” ( ). To be more specific, the vision and missions of VNU-HCM can be found in the website as follows:


VNU-HCM aims to become one of the top Asian higher education systems.


VNU-HCM is a training centre that accumulates talented lecturers and students; training human resources with high quality and producing important scientific research outputs. VNU-HCM pioneers in innovation and essentially contributes to the development of the country and society. VNU-HCM is administrated, managed and supervised based on the higher education system model with high autonomy, self-responsibility, managing to provide an environment for science and academic to develop freely in a model urban university campus.

In alignment with the VNU-HCM vision, missions and objectives, the USSH state its visions and missions as follows:


As a member of Vietnam National University - Ho Chi Minh City – a key centre of Vietnamese education for under- and post-graduate training and for scientific research with high quality and multi-disciplines, the University of Social Sciences and Humanities (USSH) pledges to be one of leading research-oriented institutions of Vietnam in social sciences and humanities, aiming to reach international standards of a research institution, comparable to that in the Asia and the world.
