IB Learners strive to be:
One School, Three Programmes...
The Primary Years Programme
The PYP is a curriculum framework designed for students aged 3 up to 12. It focuses on the development of the whole child as an inquirer, both in the classroom and in the world outside. The UNIS Hanoi PYP curriculum has five essential elements: knowledge, skills, conceptual understanding, attitudes and action. These are organized into process-led, inquiry based units of learning that encourage students to ask questions and seek answers about the world around them. Please visit the Elementary pages to learn more.
The Middle Years Programme
The MYP is a curriculum framework designed for students aged 11 up to 16. It provides experiences and subject studies that encourage students to become creative, critical and reflective thinkers who respond well to intellectual challenge. The UNIS Hanoi MYP builds upon the knowledge, skills, conceptual understandings, attitudes and approaches to learning developed in the IB Primary Years Programme and prepares students to meet the academic challenges of the IB Diploma Programme. Please visit the Secondary pages to learn more.
The IB Diploma Programme
The Diploma Programme is a two-year programme of studies that provides a balanced curriculum, encourages social responsibility and prepares students for higher education. It culminates at the end of Grade 12 with external examinations and externally-moderated internal assessments. Students may achieve IB Certificates that recognize passing grades in their individual subjects. Satisfaction of all requirements for every subject leads to the award of the IB Diploma. This qualification is recognized by many universities worldwide, and some offer advanced placement credits that acknowledge the academic level that students have achieved.
