Department of French Language and Culture, Vietnam National University

In 1945, on the basis of Indochina University, Vietnam National University was established. From 1956, University of Hanoi and Hanoi University of Education had been established, directly inheriting the traditions and facilities of Indochina University (1906), Vietnam National University (1945) and University of Fundamental Science (1951). At that time, there was a Faculty of Foreign Languages at the Hanoi Pedagogic University, which later developed into Hanoi College of Foreign Languages and Education.
