EDUCATIONAL FIELD TRIPS

Every year, our students go on local, national, and international trips, including a Nord Anglia citizenship expedition to Tanzania, which build their confidence and leadership skills, and open their eyes to the wonders and challenges facing our world.

Residential, expeditions, and day trips

At BIS Hanoi, we offer a range of age-appropriate trips which develop our students' personal leadership qualities, nurture their independence, increase their self-esteem, and enable them to experience different cultures.

There are a number of compulsory day and residential trips in primary and secondary which all students are required to take part in. These are normally linked to an area of the curriculum and provide the opportunity to develop a deeper range of skills and experiences.

The cost of day trips in both primary and secondary are fully covered within our tuition fees. Residential trip costs incur an additional charge.

The chart below details planned residential trip destinations, as well as additional information about the themes and what students can expect to achieve.
