Higher Education Forum – Vietnam

11TH APRIL 2019, 9:30am – 4:30pm

The International Baccalaureate (IB) is hosting a higher education forum at the International School Ho Chi Minh City (ISHCMC). This forum is intended to bring together key stakeholders from the Vietnamese higher education sector, representatives from IB World Schools (in Vietnam and neighbouring countries such as Cambodia and Laos) and also from interested schools. The purpose is to provide information on the IB Diploma Programme, hear how universities in countries such as the UK, Australia, Hong Kong and Canada recognize IB students, and discuss developing pathways for IB students to continue their education here in Vietnam.

The IB invites educators and professionals to the Higher Education Forum. This forum is intended to provide the higher education community of Vietnam with information and resources to better understand and create awareness of the IB Diploma Programme (DP).

The number of candidates that had taken the IB Diploma Programme (DP) examination In Vietnam has increased by 35% over the past 5 years. As the number of DP candidates  continue  to grow, it is important that there are adequate pathways for IB DP students to take advantage of further education opportunities in-country and to ensure that Vietnamese universities and institutions can attract their share from this talented pool of students within the region.

Through the forum, the IB hopes to provide the Vietnamese universities and the community with an enriching experience to learn more about the Diploma Programme as well as encourage the local universities to create admissions policies for both local and foreign DP students. Additionally, the IB would be providing information and resources to help universities in better understanding the DP for developing an IB Diploma entry pathway.
