The job market is tough, and for Vietnamese students, it’s unlikely that non-governmental employers hire based on applicants’ understanding of class consciousness or state socialism.

Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung signed a decree last month waving university fees for philosophy students who study « communist sciences, » which focus on the teachings of the nation’s founding father Ho Chi Minh, German philosopher Karl Marx, and Russian revolutionary Vladimir Lenin, the BBC reports.

In boosting culture, the Communist Party also supports traditional Vietnamese opera and drama students, who will receive a discount on school fees.
