Extracurricular activities


Education at IEI is more than just coursework. IEI focuses on promoting students’ personal development. Therefore, besides theoretical lessons in class, students are strongly encouraged to participate in extracurricular activities such as:

  • Sports Competitions
  • Outdoor adventures in Can Gio District, Ho Chi Minh City
  • Yakult Vietnam’s factory tour
  • Charity Trip to Dieu Giac Pagoda
  • A visit to Ho Chi Minh City Conservatory of Music
  • etc.

Being a part of these activities helps students develop and master essential soft skills in the 21st century (i.e. skills of Leadership, Communication, Creativity, Problem Solving, and Management).



Through social work volunteering such as Spring Volunteer Campaign, and The Lovely Moonlight, IEI students have not only developed a strong sense of community, but they have also had countless opportunities to:

  • Meet new people, connect and socialize
  • Support the local community
  • Network and improve their employment opportunities
  • Learn and cultivate new skills



At IEI, students will receive expert support and recommendations/referrals to companies for internships.
