Tóm tắt: This article investigates potential changes to student identities when the credit system replaces the fixed study plan in Vietnamese higher education. It starts with explaining the reasons for introducing the credit system in Vietnam, before analysing Bernstein's concepts of singulars, regions, and generic modes as explanatory bases for students' identity formation. Based on this theoretical frame, together with a review of the particular history of the Vietnamese higher education system, the article problematises claims made by the Vietnamese government about the benefits of a credit system. Although the article has a narrow focus, the argument found here can be generalised to both developed and developing countries where the education system is increasingly influenced by market forces.
