Our Alumni - Our Story
UNIS Hanoi is proud to be connected with its worldwide family of alumi - anyone who has attended UNIS Hanoi is considered to be an alum, including their families and former staff and faculty. Our hope is that our alumni will always remain connected with each other, with UNIS Hanoi and with Vietnam. With everyone’s help we hope to keep growing our world-wide alumni family.
Initially started in 1988 with 12 students in two classes, as of the start of the this school year, UNIS Hanoi has the privilege of welcoming more than 1100 students on campus every day, learning through a programme founded in the UN Principles.
One thing that has not changed during its long history is the importance of the school community, and UNIS Hanoi is making a special effort to reconnect with former families and faculty.
Alumni play an active role in the UNIS Hanoi community. Several regional reunions are held each year, giving our former students and teachers a chance to reconnect. UNIS Hanoi alumni all share a special experience from their time at UNIS Hanoi and we hope to celebrate the history of the school with as many of our alumni as possible.

“Nurses are advocates for people who can’t speak up for themselves and will always put the well-being of their patients first."
These are the powerful words of Colin Beard (Class of 2016) who is training to become a Registered Nurse in the USA. Inspired to become a nurse after a serious motorbike accident left him needing intensive year-long medical care, Colin says he remains committed to pursuing his dream profession, now more than ever before. He revealed, “During my time in nursing school, I have developed a passion for communities such as the homeless that are underserved and in need of medical care. My hope is to go back to graduate school to receive a Master’s degree in Public Health Nursing, followed by a Doctorate in Nursing Practice (DNP).”
