China's foremost gathering for global universities to connect with counsellors from the country's best private and international schools.

Beijing, China
November 2024

Going deeper in China to find new school partners for universities

Most international institutions tend to focus recruitment efforts on China’s classic Tier 1 cities (e.g., Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen), and while there will be participants from those cities at the China International Schools Forum & Workshop, we are also working hard to ensure there is a balanced attendance from across the country. For example, as explained in our T2 China Market Report, its Tier 2 cities hold enormous potential for recruiters.

Tier 2 cities (such as Hangzhou, Chengdu, Shenyang, Wuhan, Xi’an and Jinan) are undergoing rapid expansion with vast improvements in infrastructure, transportation, education, employment and standards of living, making them a hotbed for international student recruitment.

That’s why our event is designed to help you expand your network with bilingual and international schools across the country’s thriving metropolitan cities. In November 2024, we’re bringing the region’s top school counsellors into the nation’s capital for an event like no other.

Find out which secondary schools you will meet in China

Participating counsellors from China’s most economically advanced cities have been meticulously chosen from the country’s esteemed private, bilingual, and international schools. Moreover, these institutions believe in supporting their counsellors with professional development opportunities to help them promote the best higher education options for their students.

Participating elite schools come from a range of profiles such as:

  • International schools including but not limited to the US, Canadian, British, French, German, and Australian curriculum.
  • Secondary schools that prepare students for GCSEs or A levels.
  • K-12 schools following the International Baccalaureate (IB) or Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) programme.
  • Private, bilingual, and gifted schools.
  • Religion-affiliated schools.

Get in touch with us to learn more about the schools that will attend.

In-person accreditation and training is a big draw for Chinese counsellors

High school counsellors are also attracted to the China International Schools Forum & Workshop because they can participate in professional development seminars which form part of a global accreditation programme. For busy counsellors, this training is invaluable in the breadth and depth of insights shared, tackling key issues such as academic testing, how to improve the counselling profession, and managing various visa processes. Through expert-generated resources and thought-provoking discussions, THE CAP helps improve the way counsellors advise students and parents.

This extra academic content and training provides school counsellors and principals with credits towards completing the Times Higher Education Counsellor Accreditation Programme (THE CAP), which will give them a globally recognised accreditation and their school will become a THE Accredited Counsellor School.

BMI/THE’s compelling programme ensures that we attract the right high schools for you to meet, train and strengthen relationships with in order to open up more pathways to your institution for talented Indians.
