About our Curriculum  

1. Which are the differences between the curricula of BVIS and other bilingual schools in Vietnam? 

While other bilingual schools in Vietnam provide curriculum based on that of the Ministry of Education and Training (MOET) supplemented by several subjects taught in English, BVIS students follow a combination of the British National Curriculum and the International Primary Curriculum. Both English and Vietnamese are integrated in the curricula with the proportion of English - Vietnamese varying in different sections, approximately, 50% - 50% for Early Years, 55% - 45% for Primary, 80% -20% for Key Stage 3 (Year 7-9) and 90% - 10% for Key Stage 4 and 5 (Year 10-13). 

BVIS places a strong emphasis on helping students preserve their mother tongue and culture. Subjects taught in Vietnamese are fully aligned with MOET requirements for international schools as stated in Decree No. 73/2012/NĐ-CP.

2. How is the day timetabled? Will English be integrated or will it be English in the morning and Vietnamese in the afternoon? 

The English and Vietnamese curriculum are integrated and delivered within the core school hours. Please see the Student Timetable to see our school day times.

3. How do students graduate? 
We offer Cambridge University IGCSE (at 16 years old) and International A Level (at 18 years old) examinations. Our students' exam results have consistently been outstanding. 

4. Are the qualifications obtained at this school recognised and valued world-wide? 
Yes, Cambridge examinations are taken in over 100 countries in the world and accepted as entry requirements by top universities in all countries.

5. Will there be any learning support or additional support for my child? 

The school offers learning support from fully qualified teachers for children with mild learning difficulties We also have a fully qualified  English as Additional Language (EAL) team that will help your child with their English language acquisition. 

6. Does the school offer any extra-curricular activities? 

We have a very exciting after-school programme available to our students. Every teacher has an after-school club there are leading, and at the moment we have about 100 different clubs available to our students, from a variety of traditional activities like swimming or poetry, to quirky clubs such as for example fishing.

We listen to our students and their families, and if there is sufficient demand for something new, we always try our best to cater for everybody’s passions. We also run popular clubs on both Saturday and Sundays for those who want even more.

About Admissions 

1. Will my child be able to follow the curriculum if we enroll at BVIS part way through the year? 

Yes, at BVIS, all learning has no limits and we pride ourselves on providing a personalised leanring programme.  

All of our programmes are designed to help all students to progress in both Vietnamese and English to natioanlly expected standards, in readiness for external examinations at age 16. If your child joins in Year 8, for instance, they still have 4 years to prepare for these external examinations. We also provide additional support through our English as a Second Language (ESL) programme. 

2. Will my child who is studying in a Vietnamese school without any English, be accepted? 

This depends on their age and test results and/or school reports. In general, the older the child, the higher our expectations with regards to their English levels, because they should be able to follow the curriculum and be fully prepared for their graduation year exams. 

We have an excellent English support team, and accept students who may initially need assistance with their English, depending on their admissions test results. We aim to ensure that all of our children will thrive and flourish within our vibrant school community.
