China International Schools Forum & Workshop

While our Southeast Asia International Schools Forum & Workshop brings together several nations from the region, when it comes to a country the size of China, it’s essential to have an event dedicated exclusively to the Chinese school sector. And although outbound mobility may have slowed a bit in recent years, this Asian powerhouse is by no means lessening in its importance.

And when it comes to recruitment, there’s no better place to start than at the secondary school level. Here, influential counsellors advise students on a daily basis as to which career paths to take and which universities might be the best match for them. If you want your brand to be among those considered, then you can’t afford to miss this event.

Pulling in the best counsellors and principals from renowned international and private high schools across China, this workshop will provide you with an exceptional opportunity to build and strengthen relationships with one of the most formidable networks across a country that is home to 1.4+ billion people.

Meet in Beijing to tighten your relationships with influential counsellors from across China

To ensure that only the best schools with a strong record of sending students abroad for higher education attend, BMI/THE will reference-check all counsellors before extending an invitation. On qualifying to attend, we will pay for their transportation to Beijing, hotel room and meals. By controlling the selection process and facilitating their participation, we are able to ensure that higher education institutions are meeting with the right influencers from across China’s top cities.

Once you are registered, you will be able to choose the specific high school representatives you’d like to meet and pre-organise all of your appointments using the online scheduling system Marcom. Plus, you can relax and unwind together during various networking breaks, lunches and the gala dinner. This mix of formal and casual interactions allows you to meet representatives from new schools you are not currently partnered with as well as reinforce your relationships with school contacts who sow the seeds for studying abroad from early on.

Hold face to face meetings with China’s best high school counsellors and leaders

This premium event gives you access to counsellors and advisors at the top international and private high schools from China’s Tier 1 and 2 cities.

  • Target and pre-organise 26 private meetings with specific principals and high school counsellors.
  • Create and solidify relationships throughout the 2-day event at exceptional networking functions including the welcome reception, gala dinner, lunches and coffee breaks.
  • Achieve ongoing exposure for your institution, whose profile and listing appear in the School Handbook given to each high school counsellor.
  • Access discounted hotel accommodation during the event.

How we ensure you make the right contacts at the K-12 level

With so much variety in global undergraduate admissions processes and requirements, our events give counsellors the chance to not only meet industry colleagues face to face, but also enhance their own knowledge and career development.

During our workshop, counsellors will also attend educational seminars which form part of Times Higher Education Counsellor Accreditation Programme (THE CAP). Consisting of 12 modules and covering a solid range of content to help improve counsellors’ daily tasks when advising students, THE CAP is a ground-breaking professional development programme to support the international school sector.

All attending counsellors will receive some in-person training from THE CAP during the event, and then finish the remaining sessions online. Once completed, they will be among an elite cohort of school counsellors who hold a globally recognised accreditation, bolstering their career profile and thereby enhancing the reputation of their school.

The fact that the counsellors and school leaders can obtain this extra professional development training and certification is a huge incentive for them to attend the Forum & Workshop. Hence, we are able to ensure that the best of the best participate in our event and are genuinely interested in improving their industry knowledge and global network.
