One of the world’s four remaining communist states, Vietnam has seen rapid growth since enacting market-based economic reforms in 1986. It now has an annual growth rate of seven per cent and has been tipped as the world’s fastest growing economy up to 2050. 

The densely populated state bordering the South China Sea has a wide range of private international schools in its capital Hanoi and southern metropolis Ho Chi Minh City. They include schools offering British, Canadian, American and Singaporean curriculums and a United Nations school serving more than 60 nationalities. 

There are 12 IB World Schools, which all teach in English, while 11 offer the International Baccalaureate and three are authorised to teach all three IB programmes. Some offer IB programmes alongside the IGCSE and A-levels, American high school diploma and Advanced Placement programmes or the Vietnamese curriculum. 

Four schools are authorised to offer three IB programmes. They are United Nations International School of Hanoi; International School, Ho Chi Minh City; European International School and Hanoi International School, with the latter authorised to offer the Middle Years Programme in 2017.

Most international schools are coeducational and take day students only. The Council of International Schools has six accredited schools in Vietnam, including British International School Ho Chi Minh City.

The sector is expected to see further growth after the government announced a draft decree in spring 2017 lifting a cap on the number of Vietnamese students that can attend schools set up through foreign investment. The cap is 10 per cent for primary schools and 20 per cent for high schools.

Vietnam’s public education system is highly competitive, with “high schools for the gifted” setting demanding entrance tests at secondary level. High scores in the National High School Graduation Examination are required for university entrance. 

Education is compulsory from age five to 14. Primary schools teach children up to age 11, middle schools to age 14 and secondary schools to age 18. The school year runs from August to June and is divided into two semesters. 

In 2015, gross primary school enrolment was 109 per cent and 94 per cent of children transferred to secondary school, while gross tertiary enrolment stood at 29 per cent of the age group. In 2011, Vietnam had 163 universities, senior colleges and institutes, including several private institutions.
