BMI connects you to…
Asia

A region renowned for academic excellence, commitment and strength

For many decades, international student recruiters have enjoyed the growth coming out of Asia with mature markets like China, South Korea or Japan consistently producing tip-top graduates and multiple countries in Southeast Asia increasingly sending larger numbers of students abroad.

Throughout the region, international education providers recruiting at BMI events can look forward to meeting academically focused students, helpful high school counsellors, reputable agents and various scholarship organisations fuelling outbound mobility. Via multiple events targeting different audiences, you’ll be able to cover the whole of Asia by visiting just three cities (Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City and Bangkok).

For more than 30 years, we’ve been helping institutions around the world hit enrolment targets and increase student diversity. With one of our satellite offices over in Sydney, Australia, Asia is right on our doorstep, making market access and insights a breeze. And BMI, much like the forecasts for a market such as Vietnam, shows no signs of slowing down… and neither should you. Welcome to Asia.

Education fairs to connect you with students at all academic levels

Meeting students and their families face to face while they are actively researching and selecting study abroad opportunities is a fantastic way to bring your brand to life and create a personal connection with your prospects. Held in both March and November, our Vietnam Global Education Fair has been growing year on year, as eager, ambitious Vietnamese increasingly spread their wings to experience an education abroad.

BMI also takes a select number of institutions into leading Vietnamese private high schools known for producing gifted students with the financial wealth to enable them to study overseas. You’ll exhibit directly to senior students and high school counsellors at several schools in both Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City, with helpful BMI staff on hand to manage every aspect of the visit – from escorted bus rides to the setup of all your materials – giving you a hassle-free experience so you can concentrate on what you do best: recruiting students.

 

Workshops to help you forge relationships with influential high school counsellors

Given the fact that students are going abroad at younger and younger ages, having firm links at the secondary school level in your target recruitment countries is crucial. Our Vietnam International Schools Forum & Workshop is designed to help you achieve exactly that.

New in 2019, the Forum will be held in Vietnam this October, enabling you to establish and strengthen relationships with secondary school principals and counsellors who regularly advise students and parents on which countries and institutions abroad are the best match for them. These attendees represent the top bilingual, international and private schools from throughout Vietnam, creating a perfect pathway for higher education overseas.

Recruiting via quality agents from across Asia

Held in March in Bangkok and in Ho Chi Minh City in November, the BMI Agent Workshop Asia is a convenient, cost-effective way to meet a large variety of quality screened agents under one roof.

With over a dozen countries represented from across Asia at each event, you’ll be able to enrich and expand your agent contacts as a wealth of Asian agent connections comes to you.

Prior to the workshops, you’ll pre-schedule meetings via the Marcom scheduling system, giving you control over who you meet and making sure your time is well spent. BMI agents have also been carefully screened to ensure they are active in the market and operating to high ethical standards.

Over two days dedicated to partner recruiting via agencies, you’re sure to strengthen your relationships with local Southeast Asian agents during private meetings and multiple networking opportunities like refreshment breaks, meals and social events.

Receive funded students via scholarship programmes

And finally, the most prestigious event on BMI’s calendar is the Global Scholarship Summit, held every spring in London. With a truly global feel, the Summit attracts all the key scholarship programme providers from 42 countries around the world, giving you an unprecedented opportunity to form alliances with not only scholarship organisations from Asia, but from all over the globe.

In the international education industry, there is truly no other event like it.
