What is our Virtual School Experience?

Our virtual school has been designed to meet every student’s social, emotional, creative, physical and cultural needs.

Our Virtual School Experience (VSE) for Secondary students ensures our students continue to receive high-quality, personalised teaching and learning as they prepare for their exams, and life beyond the classroom. BIS Hanoi teachers have access to a wide variety of teaching resources and a network of 10,000 teachers to share best practices and ideas to personalise our students’ learning. Our virtual school rigorously and holistically prepares our students for their exams and university, with bespoke guided study and the dedicated support from our world-class teachers.  

Virtual learning emphasises our responsibilities and time-management skills as students. In a world where technology is becoming more advanced, virtual learning can prepare us for the digital skills required in the future. Phuong Anh, Year 13
