Of course, getting into the right university is only half the goal. Students must be ready to thrive once they get there. BIS’s university-level IBDP requirements give them advanced experience with essay writing, research and deadlines with an emphasis on inquiry-based, student-led learning. These skills are all important during the application process as well as once they begin their university careers. Moreover, extracurricular and service opportunities mean they have the academic and social skills required to excel once university classes begin.
For those looking to confirm BIS Hanoi’s educational excellence, the list of universities graduates attend, which includes UCLA, Columbia University, New York University, King’s College London, London School of Economics and Political Science, University of Sydney, University of Toronto, University of Hong Kong, and Yonsei University, is impressive. But the extensive university selection process involves much more than just aiming for a name on a list. A successful career and life is greatly supported by finding the university that best responds to the academic, social and developmental needs and interests of a student. In this, BIS Hanoi excels because, as Widemann notes, “you don’t have to do it alone.”
