Hanoi National University of Education (Abbreviation: HNUE; Vietnamese: Đại học Sư phạm Hà Nội) is a public university in Vietnam. Established in 1951 as the fourth university in Vietnam (after Indochina Medical College (1902), University of Indochina (1904), École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de L'Indochine (1925)), it is one of the largest higher education institutions in this country. The university also operates HNUE High school for gifted students, a national high school for gifted students.

Established in 1951 with the name of National University of Science Education, the school was headed by Prof Lê Văn Thiêm, the father of Vietnam's Mathematics society. In 1956, it was merged with National University of Arts and Social Science Education and renamed Hanoi University of Education. In 1993, the University, along with University of Hanoi and Foreign Language Teachers’ Training College, became the main posts for the establishment of Vietnam National University, Hanoi (VNUH). However, thanks to the Vietnam government's requirement for establishing an independent institution to train teachers, the university was split from VNUH in 1999 and renamed the Hanoi National University of Education - a hitherto major national university in Vietnam.

The biggest astronomical optical telescope in South East Asia is situated on the school campus. In 2008, HNUE was the host for the 39th International Physics Olympiad.


Hanoi National University of Education was founded on 11 October 1951. Since then, it has been accredited by the Ministry of Education and Training of Vietnam (MOET), which has also managed and awarded the University's undergraduate and post-graduate degrees. HNUE was a member of Vietnam National University, Hanoi for 6 years (1993-1999). It is one of the 14 key national universities in Vietnam.
