30 Years of Learning to Inspire

In 1988 UNIS Hanoi opened its doors for the first time, welcoming 13 students into the borrowed classrooms of a local high school.

Today UNIS Hanoi celebrates serving its community for 30 years and welcomes daily to our purpose built campus more than 1100 student from more than 70 nationalities.

2017-2018 will be a year to remember with not only the School's 30th Birthday to celebrate, but also 40 years of Viet Nam in the United Nations, our 20th Graduating Class and the 10th and final year of the School's longest serving Head of School, Dr Chip Barder.

And in honour of both our Head of School and the School's commitment to the future of Vietnam we will be fundraising $350,000 USD in 2017-2018 to create a 10 year Dr Charles Barder Scholarship Fund, investing in outstanding local students from disadvantaged backgrounds as future leaders in business, arts, politics and development.
