HCM City stops piloting foreign syllabus at international schools

The HCM City People's Committee has recently asked four international schools to suspend their foreign syllabus from the 2021-2022 school year following Decree 86/2018/NĐ-CP.

The Ho Chi Minh City People's Committee has recently asked four international schools to suspend their foreign syllabus from the 2021-2022 school year following Decree 86/2018/NĐ-CP.

The four international schools including APU International School, Sai Gon Pearl International School, Canadian International School, and American International School are required to stop their foreign syllabus starting from the 2021-2022 school year.

Deputy director of the Ho Chi Minh City Department of Education and Training, Nguyen Van Hieu noted that the change would be gradually applied to only newly-admitted students while students at on-going courses would continue with their current syllabus.

The piloting of foreign syllabus at these four international schools which has been carried out since 2018, allowed the schools to use different foreign-designed programmes along with the syllabus by the Vietnamese education ministry in their training. This was intended at giving graduates both Vietnamese and international certificates that can be used in their overseas studies.

However, the Covid-19 pandemic would make it difficult for students to study overseas in the coming time, the department said. Therefore, they should return to Vietnamese syllabus so that they can study at local universities.

The Ho Chi Minh City Department of Education and Training has also asked 44 other international schools or private schools that are using foreign syllabus to report on their training activities. Dtinews
