Yew Wah international education service is built upon the many decades of experience of Yew Chung Education Foundation in offering quality international education in Hong Kong and Mainland China. Yew Chung was founded by a pioneer of international education in China, Madam Tsang Chor-hang, in Hong Kong in 1932. In recent decades, Madam Tsang's daughter, Dr. Betty Chan Po-king, together with Professor Paul Yip Kwok-wah, have set up Yew Chung International Schools in Shanghai, Beijing, Chongqing and Qingdao for overseas and non-Chinese citizens. In 2002, the couple opened a formal Yew Chung International School in Silicon Valley, USA, the first attempt to export the Yew Chung model of international education which combines Eastern and Western cultures.

With their experience in international education, Dr. Chan and Prof. Yip started the Yew Wah series of international education for Chinese citizens in major cities of Shanghai, Yantai, Chongqing, Shenzhen and Beijing in China which overseas or non-Chinese students are also eligible and welcome to apply for. The series aims at allowing more students to enjoy quality international education provided by Yew Wah Education Management Co. Ltd..

Registered in Hong Kong, the Yew Wah International Education Foundation (YWIEF) manages schools of Yew Wah in line with the national education policy. The schools include formal, institutionalised international education schools of Higher Education, Matriculation, Secondary, Primary and Early Childhood. The Foundation is also authorised by established overseas international open examination boards and institutions to set up examination centres and curriculum systems in China. It also offers accredited continuing education, language education and on-line learning. In the future, the Foundation is going to open more Yew Wah schools in China. In face of the challenges of the new century's education and lifestyles, Yew Wah is committed to promoting the internationalisation of China's education.
