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.

Preyanka Clark Prakash (Class of 2000) wrote to proudly share about Bloomtown, the palm oil-free, vegan, cruelty-free body and skincare company she and her husband, Medwin Culmer, started in the UK. Palm oil is an ingredient hidden in many mainstream beauty and food products. After witnessing first-hand the environmental devastation caused by palm oil cultivation in Indonesia, the loss of virgin forest that is home to endangered orangutans, tigers and so much of the world's biodiversity, Preyanka made it her mission to offer truly ethical and cruelty-free body and skincare alternatives. Beautifully hand-crafted, the products are the combination of the founders' love of nature and Preyanka's botany and aromatherapy expertise. Find out more about Preyanka's story, her creations and the very thoughtful ethical policies on Bloomtown's website.
