Tóm tắt: Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to investigate the development of Viet Nam’s approach to higher education quality assurance during the last dozen years since its establishment, focussing on the achievements and challenges. Design/methodology/approach – This is a desktop analysis study. The paper analyses the policies and practices related to the development of Viet Nam’s higher education accreditation system through reviewing associated literature. Findings – The research has found out that there are several achievements, including: the accreditation framework has been developed; accrediting agencies were established; almost universities have completed their self-assessment reports; some institutions have undergone an external assessment exercise, a few of which were awarded accreditation certificates. However, there are still a number of challenges related to the independence of the accrediting agencies, human resources, accreditation standards and criteria, institutions’ awareness about accreditation, and the pace of accreditation implementation. Research limitations/implications – The primary limitation of this study is the research methodology which merely relies on document analysis. It would be more credible if the findings could be triangulated with data taken from other sources such as interviews with key stakeholders. Originality/value – Based on the analysis of achievements and challenges at both macro and micro levels, discussion and recommendations are made for future policy-making and management in the field of higher education accreditation.
