BMI connects you to…
Brazil & Latin America

Welcome to the world's most lively and energetic students!

The education market in Central and South America is well known for having a strong appetite for overseas study and various government-backed initiatives to encourage outbound mobility. From kingpin markets like Brazil to small yet healthy markets like Chile, which can help you diversify your student body, BMI offers a range of recruitment solutions so you can achieve your internationalisation goals in Brazil and Latin America.

BMI has been running student fairs in Central and South America since 1987 and has garnered a reputation for organising the most successful fairs in the region. And with satellite offices in Bogotá, Colombia as well as Salvador, Brazil, our finger remains firmly on the pulse of a Latin rhythm, with warmth in our heart and a fire in our belly.

 

BMI connects you to Brazil and Latin America through the following solutions…

 

Fairs to connect you with students from the K-12 to postgraduate level

If you’re looking to recruit students for language or undergraduate courses, then be sure to join our bustling education fairs in Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico, Panama and Peru.

For those of you recruiting for postgraduate education and certificates, we also organise speciality fairs for niche higher education audiences in Colombia, Mexico and Brazil.

In addition, to help you get your brand in front of students sooner, BMI also runs fairs in prestigious secondary schools that directly connect you with senior students, parents and high school counsellors. These K-12 fairs are conveniently timed either just before or after our main fairs in order to help you make the most of your overseas visit.

Workshops to help you forge relationships with high schools counsellors

With students going abroad at younger and younger ages, having firm links at the secondary school level in your target recruitment countries is vitally important. Our International Schools Forum & Workshops are designed to help you achieve just that.

Held in Brazil each March and in Colombia in 2020, this event gives you structured, pre-scheduled meetings plus ample networking time with principals and counsellors from the top secondary schools in each country. You’ll have the chance to form relationships with this critical audience who regularly advise students and parents on which countries and institutions abroad are the best fit for them.

Connect with Brazilian Agents & International Office Directors

The higher education sector in Brazil is rife with public and private universities that are keen to meet international institutions to explore strategic partnerships for student and staff mobility, international research collaborations and curriculum internationalisation.

Join our Brazilian Agent and Higher Education Workshop in March in Sao Paulo and you’ll network with university representatives from across Brazil over 2 days packed with meetings and social functions.

At the same event, higher education institutions will also be able to sit down with thoroughly vetted agents who can recruit on their behalf. Utilising such partners gives overseas universities “boots on the ground” presence which is a strong strategy in a country such as Brazil where personal contacts have much sway over the decision making process. BMI brings in student recruitment agencies from across 11 states in Brazil, offering you full countrywide coverage.

Digital marketing strategies to recruit students

Your content marketing strategy in Brazil and Latin America will no doubt include channels aimed directly at aspiring international students, and here’s where our platform Viva-Mundo comes in.

Our team can create and manage content for you in English, Spanish or Portuguese and produce a rich mix of marketing outreach including editorial articles about your institution or study destination, webinars, email campaigns and social media engagement.

Receive funded Brazilian & Latin American students via scholarship programmes

The most prestigious event on BMI’s calendar is the BMI Global Scholarship Summit, held every spring in London. With a truly global feel, the Summit attracts all the major scholarship programme providers from over 40 countries, giving you an unprecedented opportunity to form alliances with not only scholarship organisations from Brazil and Latin America, but from all over the globe.

Due to the popularity of the Global Summit, BMI is proud to announce the launch of its Americas Scholarship Summit in 2019. This new event is similar to the global one but has a targeted regional focus, connecting you with the heads of scholarship and training programmes from across North, Central, South America, and the Caribbean.

Both events are extraordinarily unique in the international education industry given their ability to attract such high level audiences – reserve your space now before it’s too late!
