5. Which curriculum does BVIS Hanoi apply? Does BVIS Hanoi apply the Ministry of Education and Training (MOET) programme to Vietnamese Studies and British National Curriculum to subjects taught in English? Which organisation(s) accredit the school’s curriculum?
For Early Years and Primary Sections, we apply Early Years International Curriculum and International Primary Curriculum combined with the British National Curriculum. Besides, the subjects taught in Vietnamese are designed based on the MOET programme and the British National Curriculum.
For Secondary Section, we use the standardized British curriculum that prepares students for IGCSE examination (at the end of Year 11) and International A Levels examination (at the end of Year 13). BVIS Hanoi is entrusted by the Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) to run IGCSE and International A-Levels examinations.
Students in the UK, from Early Years to Lower Secondary, do not follow a specific set of textbooks. Students learn from a variety of books and learning resources to broaden their perspectives and to update the latest knowledge and skills. Students in Year 11 and Year 13 will be provided with specialized textbooks to best prepare for the international examinations.
The British Vietnamese International School is the first of its kind in Vietnam to offer an international curriculum with full bilingual development both in English and mother tongue which is accredited by (CIS) and (WASC). BVIS Hanoi is also a member of Nord Anglia Education (NAE), a worldwide organization with schools in 29 countries. We are audited annually by NAE Academic Council to ensure the standard curriculum and teaching-learning quality.
Being a member of FOBISIA and The Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award is evidence of the teaching quality at BVIS.
