NSS offers two main international education pathways: one leading to Cambridge International qualifications (CI Pathway) and another incorporating Academic English with IELTS/SAT Preparation & Advanced Placement (AP) courses (AE Pathway). Both pathways are offered in conjunction with the Vietnamese High School Diploma.
