The British Council in Vietnam signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Chu Van An High School in Hanoi on August 26, as a start for its initiative to get in schools.

The cooperation aims to create the most favourable conditions for students of Vietnam, and Hanoi in particular, to access international standard services of the Global British Council.

Under the agreement, the school will become the council’s official IELTS partner. It means that the school’s students can register to take the international test for English and enrol in the council’s courses right at their school.

The students can enjoy special preferences when attending English learning programmes and educational services at the council’s centres.

Furthermore, they can benefit from the British Council IELTS scholarship programme which will be implemented in the 2013-2014 academic year, and take part in community events introducing the UK’s education, thus helping them gain knowledge and soft skills about studying in the UK.

The cooperation’s objective is also to facilitate teacher and management staff to access the council’s global network of knowledge for specific purposes and references.-VNA
