Accreditations

Recognition by the prestigious global membership organisations confirms that BIS Hanoi meets internationally-agreed and recognised standards and develops global citizens with the qualities and skills necessary today.

In 2015, BIS Hanoi was granted membership of FOBISIA – the Federation of British International Schools in Asia, while in 2017 the school became a fully accredited member of CIS - the Council of International Schools as well as ACS WASC - the Western Association of Schools and Colleges.

Our international IGCSE qualifications are fully accredited by the Cambridge Assessment International Education Examinations Board, part of the University of Cambridge.

Council of International Schools (CIS)

In June 2017, the British International School Hanoi was officially awarded full accreditation status through the prestigious Council of International Schools (CIS).

CIS is recognised by Ministries and Departments of Education around the world as the demonstration of a school’s commitment to high quality international education - over 550 of the top universities in the world are members of CIS. This recognition confirms that BIS Hanoi meets internationally-agreed and recognized standards and develops global citizens with the qualities and skills necessary today. All CIS schools share the following ideals:

  • a desire to provide students with the knowledge, skills and abilities to pursue their lives as global citizens; and

  • a commitment to high quality international education

Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC)

The Accrediting Commission for Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges (ACS WASC), a world-renowned accrediting association and one of the six regional accrediting agencies in the United States, works closely with the Office of Overseas Schools under the U.S. Department of State. ACS WASC is responsible for accrediting public and private schools, colleges, and universities in the United States and international schools in the Asia-Pacific Region.

The British International School Hanoi has been fully accredited by WASC since August 2017. Being accredited means the campus has met rigorous standards for quality, capacity and effectiveness. Accreditation is periodically reaffirmed through a comprehensive review process that includes an institutional self-study, external review, and site visit at least once every ten years. 

The accreditation given will: 

•    Assure a school community that the school’s purposes are appropriate and being accomplished through a viable education program - a trustworthy institution for student learning

•    Validate the integrity of the school’s program and transcripts

•    Facilitate transfer of credits to other English-speaking schools — critical for college/university acceptance worldwide

•    Foster the ongoing improvement of the school’s programs and operations to support student learning

•    Provide valuable insight from fellow educators visiting the school

•    Benefit schools that choose joint accreditation or other collaborative processes, e.g., ACS WASC/CDE.

FOBISIA

The British International School Hanoi is proud to be a member school of Federation of British International Schools in Asia (FOBISIA) – a federation of over 50 of the best British International schools in the region. All member schools are closely scrutinised on application and have to meet an extensive range of quality standards in order to be accepted into the group and to retain membership.

Being a member of FOBISIA offers BIS Hanoi students opportunities to take part in a variety of cross-school international competitions, fixtures, and events, such as the FOBISIA Games and the FOBISIA Performing Arts Festival. Other FOBISIA events for students include collaboration over community service projects, a Model United Nations conference, a Primary Maths competition and a Drama Festival.

FOBISIA organises conferences where teachers from across the region can meet to share good practice, swap ideas and receive professional training. Some examples would be conferences for Principals, Deputy Heads, Business Managers, ICT Coordinators, Careers Education and Guidance teachers, Music teachers and PE teachers.

There is also a FOBISIA teacher professional development executive committee. The committee arranges for university lecturers from the UK to train teachers from around the region helping to ensure we keep our teachers up to date with the latest educational thinking, providing opportunities for them to study for further qualifications.

Cambridge Assessment International Examinations

Our international IGCSE qualifications are fully accredited by the Cambridge Assessment International Education Examinations Board, part of the University of Cambridge.

Cambridge qualifications are accepted and valued by universities around the world, recognising that they prepare and equip students with the skills they need to succeed.
