How our Secondary teachers support our students to boost their university applications?

In the USA most prestigious universities use what is called holistic admissions. In this form of admissions, the student’s grades are considered alongside their admission essay and extracurricular activities. Students can usually list up to 10 activities on their application form.

Students who can continuously demonstrate creativity, resilience, and perseverance through their extracurricular activities, especially during the current challenging time, will have a great application for  their dream destinations. Mr Luke Curran, College & University Guidance Counsellor at BVIS HCMC

Together with our exciting Virtual School Experience, Mr Luke launched a series of activities in which students choose an activity they want to do at home over several weeks which enables them to learn a new skill, help others or show creativity. BVIS Secondary will then provide a certificate of completion and the details will be included in their school university references and recommendations later!

Challenges set by Mr Luke include:
  • Taking one of the hundreds of free online academic courses offered by Ivy League schools.
  • Creating a piece of artwork or video.
  • Looking after siblings or elderly relatives.
  • Blogging about your experiences to help others.
  • Translating stories into Vietnamese for younger children to enjoy.
  • ...your imaginative idea!

You can do as many challenges as you like.

The communications platforms deployed at BVIS such as MS Teams really brought great effectiveness in connecting and supporting students.

One of the activities being done by some students in an online mathematics course run by Stanford University. This is being supported by Mr. Stuart Reid, Maths Teacher & Head of Hanoi House.

We have a Teams page that we use as an online discussion forum to discuss that week’s learning and help each other. It has been great to observe some lively discussions from students so far, this really showed the fantastic determination and resilience from our students. Mr Stuart Reid, Maths Teacher & Head of Hanoi House

At BVIS, we believe in proactive university preparation so that our students are well-placed to enter the world’s best higher education institutions. Starting from KS4, students have access to university and career consulting resources to guide them in their future journey. Our teachers and counsellors work closely with individual students to perfect their personal profiles, maximizing the possibility for admissions to their top university.
