Why is BIS Hanoi Sixth Form the right pathway before university abroad?

Most of our students have ambitions for moving abroad following Sixth Form to study at university. Every year these graduates follow in the footsteps of our alumni who have attended some of the world’s best universities and whose success stories are inspiring proof of the exciting pathways which await them. We have prepared hundreds of past students for the transition from school to university, and have long perfected the recipe for ensuring them the best future international pathway. So, what’s key to setting them up for success? 

Internationally recognised qualifications 

At Sixth form, we teach our students the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP). Unlike many schools which focus on A Levels, we favour the IBDP for its worldwide prestige and the international pathways it opens up for our students. Popular university destinations, like the UK for example, will notice the IBDP in university applications and recognise it as a particularly competitive qualification. Why is this?  

First and foremost, it is a qualification known for preparing students far better for university study than any other. The IBDP is specifically designed so that its core elements mimic the way university students study their degree. Through tasks like the extended essay, for example, students practice skills like independent research, thinking laterally and creatively, and exploring subjects so that they shape their own opinions. Studying the IBDP results in students who do not simply repeat what they have been told and memorise answers for their exams, they thoroughly understand what it means, why it is important and how their learnings fit within a global context. 

“The combination of a broad academic knowledgebase and toolkit to approach learning offered in the IBDP programme makes our graduates very appealing to higher education institutions,” said Ms. Emma Graham, IB Coordinator at BIS Hanoi.

Nord Anglia global connections 

The right qualification and a stand-out university application is one important element on the journey to university, but equally as important is our role in educating students about where they could study and what it will be like. Our aim for every student is for them to leave our school with well placed expectations and their questions around their university destination answered. The global Nord Anglia family they are part of is crucial to this.  

IB Options Evening

Being involved in our global community of schools gives students the opportunity to access local support in the country of their university of choice. Our students have attended universities from London School of Economics and Political Science and Imperial College London in the UK, Stanford, Colombia and University of Berkeley in America, to Korea University and Yonsei in Korea. In these countries and in a further 16, we have staff and alumni who work there and have attended university there. This wealth of knowledge is a valuable resource for students. Elsewhere, a student's best understanding of their future university abroad may be its website. At BIS Hanoi, we can connect students with experienced individuals who can bring the university destination to life.
