The British International School, HCMC is a friendly, supportive and professional working environment for teachers. Help, information and advice is always available for new colleagues. We will do everything we can to make sure you settle in and feel comfortable as soon as possible.
After a short period of adjustment to your surroundings, we’re sure you’ll find Ho Chi Minh City a truly incredible place to live.
In order to help with the initial adjustment, the existing teachers of the school have created an information booklet based on suggestions from those who have also been new to the city at some stage. Each year it is updated based by the most recently appointed teachers. We hope it will answer some of the many questions you might have about living in Ho Chi Minh City and better prepare you for your potential move. You can download it at the bottom of this page.
“I decided to come to Vietnam for just 2 years and do my tour of excitement, go travelling and experience a new life. But I came here and fell in love with the country and the people and I’ve now been here for 14 years! In terms of staying for 2 years, I failed. In terms of finding a country I love, I definitely succeeded.” – Ms Belinda Smith, Biology Teacher
