Enrolment Stage

Once we’ve completed the entrance assessment and written to offer your child a place at our school, we ask you to formally agree to take the placement. All parents must agree to our latest terms and conditions and pay a one-time non-refundable Registration Fee of 70,800,000 VND* to secure the place for their child. 

The Registration Fee for the Foundation Stage is 23,600,000VND.  When a child moves from the Foundation Stage to Primary School (F3 to Y1) the difference in Registration Fee at the time of enrolment will be payable. 

There’s also a Security Deposit of 23,600,000 VND*, which will be refunded to you if your child leaves our school, provided you’ve given us 90 days written notice. 

After five years in Ho Chi Minh City and experiencing more than one international school in the city, we can say with great confidence that BIS HCMC belongs to the top schools both locally and internationally and was the school that best fostered our children's abilities. Fethke Family

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the purpose of the Application Fee?

The Application Fee covers the administrative cost of the assessment our teachers will undertake with your child. With almost 1000 enquiries for school places each year, it also allows us to identify those parents who are most committed to sending their children to our school.

What does the tuition fee include?

This table is a breakdown of what our tuition fees cover.

Campus Books Uniform Day Trips Lunch/Snack External Exams
Primary Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes
Secondary Yes Yes Yes No Yes


Please note that the tuition fees are exclusive of school residential trips and visits, instrumental lessons and school buses. The uniform pack (included in the tuition fee) may be collected from the BIS uniform shop once the registration fee payment has been received.

How does the process differ if my company is paying the tuition fees?

Our aim is to make the process as straightforward and simple as possible for you, the parents. In the event that your company will be paying school fees, our Admissions Team and Finance Team will be happy to liaise directly with your company on financial matters, allowing you to concentrate on your child’s education and well-being.

What is the purpose of the Security Deposit?

Good international schools recruit foreign teachers from overseas, which is an expensive and time-consuming process. This recruitment process starts in January each year so that we can secure the best available teachers. A considerable early financial investment is made in the teaching staff and we need a measure of commitment from parents that their children will still be with us for next academic year. This is the purpose of the 90 days-notice for the deposit. We would ideally like 180 days notice before the withdrawal of a student, but have settled on 90 days as a compromise. The loss of this deposit is to offset the financial outlay made in recruiting additional staff for the coming academic year only to find that parents have withdrawn children with little or no notice. The use of a deposit in this way is standard and accepted practice in international schools around the world.
