Enrollment Process

Application Procedures

Step 1


Complete the Application Form  and provide Supporting Documents (please see Admissions Checklist)

Once all documents have been submitted to the Admissions Department (admissions@stpaulhanoi.com), Admissions Department will reach out to families to arrange time for an admission assessment. Families need to pay the Application and Assessment Fee of 4,220,000 VND *.

*Application Fee payment should be paid before scheduled test day by bank transfer. This fee is non-refundable and non-transferable and only valid for the current academic year in which the applicant applies.

Supporting Documents Admissions Checklist

  • Student's most recent 3 year academic report cards translated into English
  • Health Check
  • Teacher recommendation letter by current homeroom teacher
  • Copies of passport of student and parents
  • Enrollment certificate
Step 2

Admissions Assessments

On completing the assessments, the Admissions Director, along with the Admissions Committee’s consideration, will provide feedback as to enrollment. Assessments are used to place students in their appropriate grade/class levels, as well as provide a baseline for future measures of growth. We will evaluate each applicant based on:

  • English proficiency (reading, writing, speaking, and listening)
  • Math proficiency
  • Academic records of past three years
  • Letters of recommendation from the current school
Step 3

Decisions Regarding Acceptance

The Admissions Committee will make decisions of acceptance based on the above data. They will evaluate the assessments, determine academic potential and consider the needs of the child.

If accepted, placement will be determined by the administration based on assessment data and the space available in the program.

Acceptance decisions are made within 7 working days following the completion of the admissions assessments, review of student’s academic records, and letters of recommendation.

Step 4


Approximately one week after taking the admission assessments, the Admissions Office will send an Official Letter of Acceptance signed by the School Principal to the parents/guardian.

If the student is accepted, parents should confirm by return email and send the letter back to the school, then pay the Enrollment Fee of VND 22,100,000(this fee is non-refundable and non-transferable).

Within 5 working days, if no confirmation has been made by the parents the Official Letter of Acceptance will expire and the school may reserve that place for other students.

Before the student joins St. Paul Hanoi, parents must submit all of the following documents to the school:

  • Photocopy of student’s passport or birth certificate
  • Photocopy of parents’ passports
Step 5

Payment of tuition and other fees

The payment of the Tuition and Other Fees must be paid before attending the first class.

The enrollment fee is non-refundable. This enrollment fee is paid only once, as long as the student is continuously enrolled. If the student leaves St. Paul Hanoi for a period of more than two years and subsequently re-enrolls, the Enrollment Fee is applicable once again.
