Hanoi University of Technology - HUT ("Polytechnic University of Hanoi"), founded 1956, is the first, largest technical university in Vietnam.

After the communists took control of Hanoi in 1954 after the victory at the Battle of Dien Bien Phu, the Soviet Union decided to help North Vietnam to build up a new technical university as a frame for university education in Vietnam. The construction took about two years from the ground of an old campus of Indochina University during the French colonial period. The building was the largest one at that time in Hanoi.

The university is the fifth oldest universities in Vietnam, after Indochina Medical College (1902), University of Indochina(1904), École Supérieure des Beaux-Arts de L'Indochine (1925) and Hanoi University of Education (1951). It is the parent of many spin-off technical universities in Vietnam, including Hanoi University of Civil Engineering, Hanoi University of Mine, Vietnam Universty of Water Resource, etc. After the unification of Vietnam, many of its professors went to Ho Chi Minh City to rebuild Ho Chi Minh City University of Technology.

Gordon Memorial College was founded in 1902 with primary education being the sole program of the college. By 1906, the college was offering programs for training assistant engineers, land surveyors and primary school teachers.

Unity High School, Khartum, Sudan

Unity High School, founded in 1902, is an independent school in Khartoum, Sudan, which uses the English language and provides a British-style education to children of various backgrounds. In 2005, it had an enrollment of some 750 pupils which currently range from 4 to 18 years of age.

The School was founded in 1902 as an all-girls' school. In the preceding years, the Coptic community in Khartoum had established a boys’ school but lacked the resources to found a girls’ school at that time. Some Coptic families then approached the Anglican missionary Llwellyn Gwynne (who later became Bishop of Khartoum) for help and the school was opened in 1902.

In 1905 the school moved to its present site. In 1928 the school was renamed Unity High School, which reflected both the interdenominational origin and support the school received, as well as the school's policy of welcoming girls from both Muslim and Christian families.
