Promoting the transformation and effective implementation of the university autonomy model at higher educational institutions (HEIs) in developing countries as Vietnam is a very important task today. In order to contribute to this task, the study proposes a system of indicators to assess HEIs’ university autonomy competence. By using the system, a certain HEI can conduct self-assessment to get its clear and coherent definition of capability and resources in matters of autonomy and ac-countability. Based on this result, they can establish a strategic plan for effectively transforming the higher autonomy model in accordance with the law. Additionally, state management agencies can use this tool to assess the general and more reliable picture of the national higher education system; so that they can make appropriate policies, plans, programs to effectively promote, manage, and monitor the transformation of university autonomy model in HEIs nationwide.
