VietNam ... More Expensive than most Home Countries
International 'industrial' schools here in VietNam are nothing less than a rip off.
Many schools have fees either nearing or at the USD$20,000 mark PLUS you get to pay horrendous additional amounts for Registration, Evaluation, Admission, etc.
Several are Cognita owned ... you know Cognita, the UK industrial school company financed by a UK vulture capitalist.
These industrial schools join for profit associations who proclaim how their fee paying members are 'accredited'.
Apartments, for Foreigner management types who want to maintain their home country lifestyle, can look forward to a monthly bill of around USD$2,500 plus all the essential services.
Many wives of these Foreign imported experts find things so tough they have to find part-time employment to make ends meet.
The VN government policy is to allow 'experts' in, but then pick their brains so Vietnamese acquire the skills. Then the Foreigners can go home.
