What is the difference between the International Programme and the Bilingual Programme?

The International Programme follows the UK’s Cambridge International Education Curriculum, an internationally recognized standard in both primary and secondary education. In the International Programme, children are instructed in English by native English speaking, highly experienced and qualified international teachers.

The Bilingual Programme follows a modified version of the Vietnamese National Curriculum (MOET) with the benefit of receiving half of the learning in English by native English speaking, highly experienced and qualified international teachers. In addition, bilingual students are combined and interacting with international students for all single subjects.

Will my child need to take an entrance exam to register at HAIS?

HAIS requires a formal Admissions Assessment for students enrolling in Primary School or higher.

Students in Primary and Lower Secondary School are assessed through an online, adaptive programme from the Cambridge Centre for Evaluation and Monitoring (CEM).

Students joining Billingual Primary will also be assessed for Vietnamese language and mathematics skills.

IGCSE and potential A Level students will undergo formal assessment in English, Mathematics and Science.

All students will also join an interview with either a Vice Principal or the Learning Enhancement Coordinator.

These assessments allow HAIS to gain a full understanding of the student and discuss and provide any additional support they may need.

Will HAIS provide a bus service?

Yes, the school is able to provide transportation to students, on a first come, first serve basis, to and from the Hoi An and Da Nang area, at an additional cost, paid with tuition per the payment schedule. Participating students will be picked up/dropped off at designated bus stops.

Does the HAIS canteen accommodate any special dietary needs?

Yes. The HAIS canteen is happy to prepare gluten-free, vegetarian/vegan meals and accommodate any other dietary choices or restrictions. Parents are required to advise if their child(ren) have any allergies or dietary requirements at the time of enrolment.

How do I make payments?

Payments can be made via online, bank transfer, or cash payment directly at our school. Further information can be found on our fees page, or email finance@hais.edu.vn for further consultation.
