A new Vietnam-Finland International School (VFIS) is being built in Hanoi.

It's a first for an international school, approved by the government, to be built in a university.

The construction of the school began in November 2017. The campus has a basement, a ground floor and three floors with a total construction area over 40,000m2 on a 2-hectare site in Ton Duc Thang University (TDTU) headquarters in HCMC, Scandasia.com reported.

VFIS aims to establish an educational system from primary to high school based on the Finnish education model.

A Finnish architect team has designed the school with Finnish experts constructing the P-12 education programme. The programme is in two folds:

  1. The whole programme is Finnish, taught in English by 100% Finnish teachers. The students will obtain International Baccalaureate Certificate upon graduation
  2. The programme is regulated by the Ministry of Education and Training of Vietnam with 50% Vietnamese and 50% English for Vietnamese Baccalaureate; as well as designing cognition, mission, goals and pedagogical environment

The first enrolment is scheduled for June 2019 and will accept students from grade 1 to 9 with 5-6 classes per grade. Each class will have 20-25 students.

Finnish teaching is widely admired and its methodologies considered to be among the most advanced in the world.
