Life in Hanoi - Working with us

Information for new teachers.

The British Vietnamese International School is a friendly, supportive and professional working environment for teachers. Help, information and advice is always available for new colleagues. We will do everything we can to make sure teachers settle in and feel comfortable as soon as possible.

After a short period of adjustment to their surroundings, new teachers find Hanoi an interesting and exciting place to live. In order to help with the initial settling-in, newly arriving staff may find it useful to read this information booklet, based on suggestions from those who have also been new to the city at some stage. Each year, it is updated based on these suggestions. We hope it will answer some of the many questions people have about living in Hanoi and better prepare them for the move.
