Application Process

Application Process & Fees
Our goal at International School Ho Chi Minh City (ISHCMC) in Vietnam is to make the application process as simple and seamless for you as possible.  Prospective students who wish to apply to International School HCMC should first complete an application form and submit it to the admissions office in person or digitally in pdf format to our admission's email address. We welcome new applications throughout the academic year.  On receipt of an application, the applicant will be advised if a place is available or if there is a waitlist.  If there is an available place, applicants will be asked to pay the application fee within 10 days and to provide the rest of the required documentation.

The first step
All applicants must provide the required documentation:

1.  Completed and signed Application for Admission - Click here to Apply Online

2.  Pay the Application Fee

3.  Copy of child’s Passport

4.  Passport size photograph (not older than 6 months) (1 if pdf & 3 if hard copy)

5.  The last 2 School Reports received from the current school (Certified English translation)

6.  Educational assessment or specialist reports (where applicable)

7.  Letter from the current teacher or Principal

8.  Completed ISHCMC Medical Report

9.  Copy of child’s immunisation record

The second step
Once these documents have been submitted and the Application Fee has been received, the Admissions Office will review the application file. More information may be requested from you or the previous school.  The school may require an on-line assessment which would require supervision from the current school.

Please note:  Although admission to our school is open to students of all nationalities, as the main language of instruction is English, full participation in our curriculum requires proficiency in the English Language. English Additional Language students applying for Grade 8 and above, if not already attending an English medium school for 2 years or more will be assessed to ensure that they have an 80 Percentile level of English.

The third step
Once the full application is processed and checked by the Principal of the section, we will then provide a letter of acceptance with the start and orientation visit dates.
