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 from China’s up-and-coming Tier 2 cities to Southeast Asia’s hottest hubs.

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.

Vietnam October 2020

With so much growth coming out of this emerging market, we’ve designed a full week of integrated events that connect you with every stage of the student recruitment journey.

Our events in October 2020 are fully endorsed and run in partnership with the Centre for International Education Consultancy (CIEC), a state-owned education agency and advising centre which falls under the Vietnam Ministry of Education and Training.

The programme of events includes:

Education fairs to connect you with Vietnamese 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 October, our Vietnam Global Education Fair has been growing year on year, as eager, ambitious Vietnamese increasingly spread their wings to experience an education abroad.

To directly connect you with younger learners in Hanoi, Da Nang and Ho Chi Minh City, BMI has two solutions:

  • As part of our main Vietnam Global Education Fair, we also take 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, 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.
  • If you’re recruiting for boarding schools, high schools and summer camps, we recommend our K-12 event held in March and October, the BMI Vietnam Global Boarding & High School Fair, which coincides with the main fair but specifically targets parents with younger children.

Online Recruitment Events targeting South East Asia

Some things in international student recruitment don’t change.

In fact, some things are now more important than ever, like connecting in real-time to have meaningful conversations. The ability to ask questions and receive live, personal assistance from institutions can turn into a stand-out moment for a student before making the decision of a lifetime.

Our unique approach to recruitment events brings those conversations into a new, online space called TalkGlobalStudy, where you can connect and talk directly with students who are actively in the process of researching and planning their future international studies.

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.

The International Schools Forum in Vietnam enables 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.

Chauffeured visits to Bangkok's top international schools

Once a year, BMI also runs the Thailand Global Education Fair to bring you face to face with Bangkok’s best secondary school students. Over two days, you’ll visit several of the city’s top international schools to speak with senior students, parents and high school counsellors.

You’ll be able to have more relaxed conversations with Thai students and counsellors, given that the events take place in their own schools, each of which has been chosen for their quality curriculum and their enthusiasm to proactively prepare their students for studying abroad.

Recruiting via quality agents from across Asia

Held in March in Bangkok and in Ho Chi Minh City in October, 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 South-East 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 BMI’s 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.

To maximise your time in each city, the tour also includes fairs in top bilingual high schools to provide you with direct student recruitment opportunities.

Receive funded students via scholarship programmes

And finally, the most prestigious event on BMI’s calendar is the Global Scholarship Summit, held each spring in London. With a truly global feel, the Summit attracts all the key scholarship programme providers from over 40 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.

In-depth insights on Vietnam

Vietnam has been one of the best countries for international education recruiters for several years running, making it one of our favourite emerging markets. All signs continue to point up: demand for education abroad, outbound students, incomes, economic forecasts and gradual reforms to the country’s own education system.

Hot off the press, our Vietnam Market Report offers a deep dive into the country’s demographics, economic growth, education system, enrolments and reforms as well as outbound preferences, trends and challenges. It’s got everything you need to know about recruiting in Vietnam, and then some!
