Who We Are
We are a United Nations school inspired and guided by the principles of the United Nations. We seek staff and faculty who are excited by the challenges and opportunities of integrating the Sustainable Development Goals into all facets of teaching and learning. UNIS Hanoi recruits staff and faculty with a reputation for excellence and who demonstrate our values in both their professional and personal lives. Our Service Learning programme is central to our Mission and involves all of our students and teachers in contributing to our Vietnamese community. We are a non-profit international school where revenue is reinvested in our professional learning and campus development. We are also a co-curricular school where activities beyond the classroom provide a critical balance to our academic programme.
This year, 2018-2019, we have over 300 members of our team with slightly more than half (52%) hired from overseas, and slightly less than half (48%) locally recruited. We are an IB World School with 60 Elementary School teachers, 38 Middle School teachers, and 39 High School teachers. Our faculty are diverse, coming from 18 different nationalities. We recruit experienced teachers: our staff have an average of more than 16 years of experience in education, and nearly 60% of our faculty and administration team have a Masters or Doctorate.
What it’s like to live in Hanoi
Hanoi is a dynamic city that is rich in ancient culture, while offering the modern comforts of a middle-income country. UNIS Hanoi campus is conveniently located within the major expatriate residential areas, as well as 20 minutes drive downtown to the Old Quarter. Expats rate Vietnam highly as a host country for friendliness, low cost of living, career prospects and satisfaction, their personal happiness, and ability to find friends (Internations Expat Insider Survey 2018)
