Most students who go to international schools in Saigon or anywhere in the world are children of expats whose parents wishes for them to grow in an expat environment. Of course, in order to receive an international education, you should be prepared financially. Tuition fees vary greatly, but schools with a more advanced English curriculum range between VND225M and VND450M per year. Discounts may apply to additional children enrolled but it’s still a lot of money if you’re not on an expat package that includes schooling - see if your employer is willing to salary-package the fees. In addition to tuition fees, expect to pay extra for enrolment, placement, uniforms, extra-curricular activities, transportation and lunches. Even if you have no qualms about the school’s tuition and fees, there is still no guarantee that the best schools will admit your child. Keep the selection process and long waiting lists in mind when choosing.
