Tuition fees in Hanoi can be doubled

In the 2022-2023 school year, the lower secondary school tuition fee is expected to be 50,000-300,000 VND/month, double the current rate of 19,000-155,000, most of the remaining grades have a similar increase.

According to the draft Resolution stipulating tuition fees for public preschools and high schools in Hanoi from the school year 2022-2023 to the school year 2025-2026, the city is divided into four regions.

Accordingly, 12 urban districts and wards in Son Tay town belong to region 1; towns in 17 suburban districts are zone 2; communes (except mountainous communes) of 18 districts and towns in region 3; the remaining mountainous communes are classified into zone 4. Last year, Hanoi was divided into three regions, including urban, rural and mountainous.

The draft resolution is developed according to the new tuition fee framework at Decree 81/2021 government. The expected tuition fee of Hanoi is at the floor level, which is the lowest fee.

For schools that do not yet guarantee regular expenses, the tuition fee for regions 1 and 2 is 300,000 VND per month. The remaining two regions are lower, ranging from 100,000-200,000 VND (region 3) and 50,000-100,000 VND (region 4).

If compared by level and region, except for high schools in regions 1 and 2, whose tuition fees increase from 217,000 VND (in 2021) to 300,000 VND, the remaining tuition fees have all doubled last year.

The expected tuition fee rates for preschools and high schools that do not yet guarantee regular spending (period 2022-2026) are as follows (unit: VND/student/month):

Elementary school is free of charge. The above fee is the basis to support private primary school students or private students who are eligible for the policy of tuition fee exemption and reduction as prescribed.

With public schools self-financed regular expenses, the city does not give specific tuition fees, but only sets a ceiling each year. In the academic year 2022-2023, the tuition fee ranges from 2.4-3.2 million VND a month, increasing by 6-8% each year after. On the basis of the ceiling, the principal decides the appropriate tuition fee.

In addition to tuition fees for public schools that can and cannot be spent on a regular basis, the Hanoi People’s Council has also issued a draft Resolution on tuition fee ceiling with high-quality public schools in the academic year 2022-2023. Accordingly, the entire tuition ceiling of four levels of education will not increase compared to 2021-2022. Similar to self-funded recurrent public schools, principals of high-quality schools determine appropriate tuition fees based on this ceiling.

In the case of online learning, institutions collect 75% Tuition fees have been issued. This regulation does not apply to preschool because preschool children do not learn online.

In a month, if preschool children study for less than 14 days, they need to pay half of the prescribed amount; Studying for more than 14 days must pay full tuition for the whole month. For the high school level, which rotates face-to-face and online learning in the same month, whichever form is applied for 14 days or more, the school will collect tuition according to that method. Schools need to ensure that the total number of months of tuition collection in a year does not exceed 9.

Last year, because Covid-19 severely affected people’s lives, Hanoi did not increase tuition fees for preschool children and high school students compared to the 2020-2021 school year.

Last year’s tuition fees for kindergartens, kindergartens (excluding 5-year-olds) and high schools were 217,000, 95,000 and 24,000 VND per month respectively, corresponding to three areas: urban, rural and mountainous communes. Three rates for preschool children 5 years old, lower secondary school are 155,000, 75,000 and 19,000 VND per month.

Before Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City also announced a new draft of tuition fees, also applying the floor level according to the Decree 81 framework, but the increase is still high than before.
