The next chapter
We are proud to inform you that our graduates of Class of 2021 have received offers from the following, prestigious institutions:
Given the current challenges posed by the pandemic worldwide, 36% of our graduates decided to continue their higher education at home in Vietnam. The US accounted for 19% of the total university acceptances and ranked 2nd in our students most popular destination. 8% of our students are heading to Netherlands with the rest receiving great offers from other different countries, including the UK, Canada, Hungary, New Zealand and France.
The destinations recorded so far from our cohort saw a variety of career aspirations in different fields including Business Management, Marketing, Engineering & Computing, Economics & Finance, Psychology, Biomedical and much more. This diverse range of pathways is credited to dedicated students and teachers and the wide range of option choices available within our internationally-recognised A Level program.
The path towards success requires much more than just an excellent academic profile
This year’s university admissions are unlike any other. Traditionally, admission requires standardised language exams, but the pandemic has upended the process.
According to the Wall Street Journal, with nearly 1,600 colleges in the United States cancelling their requirements to submit SAT or ACT scores, colleges worldwide saw a record-breaking increase in applications this year. The most prestigious universities reported even larger bumps, making this the most competitive admission year in its history. And while this could be a disappointing reality for those in our class of 2021 who have tirelessly put their efforts into intensive preparation for SAT, one of the things they have learned is that life can be unpredictable and that the path towards success requires resilience. While this year may be an unprecedented time to venture into college life, BVIS’s graduates have already proven they are prepared to thrive as the next generation of innovative, independent leaders.
All of this happened as students strictly followed the new, carefully developed robust set of health and safety measures that continues to keep our community safe throughout the pandemic. The unique challenges and the resilience required to overcome the odds has made our graduates grateful to those at BVIS who helped make it possible. Because of their dedicated teachers, supportive parents and a strong wider school community, they have made it successfully to the end in order to start a new and exciting beginning.
A special thanks to the Class of 2021 for keeping the spirit of BVIS so alive even in uncertain times, with their resilience defined by intense collaboration, intellectual thinking, and the ability to adapt in uncharted territory. The celebration of seeing those who have been with us since our first day over a decade ago, is a reminder of why BVIS is here now and why it will continue to be the place to cherish for many years to come after our graduates have marched out our doors to take on the world.
