Abstract—Due to the demands of the country as well as the impact of the process of globalization and privatization, Vietnam has witnessed the steady increase in the number of non-public institutes. They have made contributions to society especially in terms of sharing the burden with the state, offering more choices to students and creating the competitiveness in the field of higher education which was quite passive with the dominance of public universities. But in the course of their development, non-public institutes have revealed many problems in different aspects from the quality of teaching staff and students to facilities. The mechanism for assessing, evaluating and ensuring the quality of higher education institutes in Vietnam which is said to have major limitations when applied to the private sector reveals more shortcomings. Therefore, having some separate criteria for assessing and assuring the quality of non-public institutes as well as accrediting these institutes is a matter to be considered. The article provides some ideas explaining why there should be exclusive criteria for non-public institutes based on an analysis of the specific characteristics of these organizations in Vietnam. Main recommendations on the elements which should be present in the process of forming these criteria are also included. To achieve these objectives, this research paper, as secondary research focuses on the analysis of existing academic literature and government policy documents.
