Studying the IB at the British International School of Hanoi

Since 2016, we have been offering the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) to our students. The IBDP is the world’s premium post-16 educational offering. Both academically challenging and personally enriching, this qualification nurtures internationally-minded students to become critical thinkers, service-oriented and highly skilled across a breadth of areas.  

Our specialist IB teachers work to help our students reach their potential. We are consistently proud of their excellent academic results and take great pleasure in hearing about the achievements of our alumni who enjoy fulfilling and esteemed futures at globally renowned universities and companies. 

Sixth Form

The IB is a pathway to incredible global university and employment opportunities for our students. It is a qualification renowned for the international recognition it receives amongst top universities. Armed with the IB qualification, the majority of our students get offered a place at their first choice university and a high proportion of these places are at universities ranked in the world’s top 100. Securing offers from Ivy League universities in the USA and Russell Group universities in the UK is a common achievement amongst our IB graduates. 

Our IB teaching programme shapes students who excel academically, creatively and as lateral thinkers. This excellence is inspired by the incredibly thorough and varied programme of subjects on offer. Under the guidance of our experienced IB specialised teachers, students study a considered combination of both academic and creative subjects.  

As a result of a blended subject choice, students of the IB diploma develop a varied skill set. They are encouraged to think critically and challenge assumptions, practise research and develop independent thought and opinion. These are skills they will put to great use at university. The ability to demonstrate creativity is required as part of the students’ extra-curricular project of choice; collaboration between students helps them to solve some of the more rigorous challenges set by their course leaders; and resilience is key to balancing a number of subjects and demands simultaneously.  

This well rounded education gives students a great advantage when it comes to securing a place at their university of choice, but also helps them develop on a personal level into assertive, confident thinkers who are equipped to take on any challenge, anywhere in the world.  

Do you have questions on the IB programme? Please get in touch with our admissions team who would be happy to answer them.  

An overview of our IB programme 

Students choose one subject from six subject areas, studying at least three (but no more than four) at higher level and the rest at standard level. The subjects are chosen from the following areas: 

  • Language and literature 
  • Second language 
  • Individuals and societies 
  • Sciences 
  • Mathematics and computer science 
  • The arts 

In addition, they must complete three core elements: 

  • The Theory of Knowledge course, which teaches students to think critically about the nature of knowledge and the "facts" we believe to be true. 
  • The extended essay, which is a 4,000-word paper based on research done independently by the student in an area related to one of their courses of study. 
  • Creativity, activity and service (CAS), which involves extracurricular projects or activities with a defined goal that reflect each of these qualities.
