“Succeeding at university requires more than knowledge and impressive exam certificates, as in life, we must have the skill to problem-solve, think critically, communicate and collaborate”, shared Mr Webb.
Throughout the two-year programme, the students have learned to balance their time between a demanding course schedule, sports and community service activities to build an excellent profile with the aim to achieve acceptance to their top choice universities. One of the main elements of the IB Program is Theory of Knowledge (TOK), which enables students to develop their self-study along with critical thinking skills and prepares them for tertiary education.
Beside the ability to excel academically, the IB Program also inspires students to stand out socially and personally among millions of university applicants in the world. BIS Hanoi students are required to engage and take part in Creativity – Action – Service (CAS) projects and contribute to their school, local and global community, for example in Hanoi, Mai Chau and Tanzania.
During their time at BIS Hanoi, the students had the opportunity to collaborate with Performing Arts students at the regional festival in collaboration with Juilliard; create with international students from 12 different schools at the regional STEAM festival; and problem solve in New York with students from our other 65 schools at the UNICEF conference in New York.
BIS Hanoi is part of Nord Anglia Education, a family of 66 Premium International Schools across 29 countries offering personalised and dedicated learning to 64,000 students from 2 to 18 years old.
