Author(s): Vu Thi Thanh Huyen, Vu Thi Lan Huong, Nguyen Thi Tuyet Van


Nowadays, university autonomy is a global trend in higher education management. University autonomy is expected to bring about a comprehensive revolution in higher education, as recognized by the Education Law 2005, the Higher Education Law 2012, and many other legal documents that grant autonomy and responsibility to universities. To ensure the successful implementation of autonomy in educational institutions according to the party-state's direction and policies and to promote the development of higher education and improve service quality, the government has issued various mechanisms and policies for financial autonomy. Mechanisms for autonomy and responsibility in fulfilling tasks, organizing machinery, staffing, and finance for public higher education institutions are also continuously issued, amended, and supplemented to meet practical requirements and create a legal basis for the process and important outcomes of transitioning from a hierarchical management model to an autonomous model in Vietnam. This research article explores the concept of university autonomy and the various aspects of university autonomy in Vietnam. It examines the impact of legal policies on university autonomy and identifies the existing challenges in implementing university autonomy. Additionally, it proposes solutions to enhance autonomy rights in Vietnamese universities.
