BMI/THE connects you to…
Europe

Meet top quality students with an eagerness to explore

From an outbound perspective, Western Europe is primarily a postgraduate market, however, there’s consistent potential at the undergraduate level as well, particularly as young Europeans are keen to maximise their multilingual skills and explore beyond familiar nearby destinations.

Spoilt for choice and hence highly selective, international education providers recruiting at European-focussed BMI/THE events can look forward to meeting academically minded, mature students whose talent and passion will enrich any classroom or campus.

In addition to recruiting students directly, universities and colleges can also create ties with several European scholarship organisations that support outbound mobility by attending our annual Global Scholarship Summit.

For more than 35 years, we’ve been helping institutions around the world hit enrolment targets and increase student diversity. From our headquarters in London, we keep our finger on the pulse of Europe and are committed to promoting both inbound and outbound mobility across the region.

Receive funded students from Europe via scholarship programmes

As the most prestigious event on BMI/THE’s calendar, the Global Scholarship Summit attracts all the key scholarship programme providers from over 40 countries around the world. Held each spring in London, the Summit gives you an unprecedented opportunity to form alliances with scholarship organisations from Europe (e.g., Hungary, Kosovo, Malta, Slovakia, UK) and well as those from all over the globe.

In the international education industry, there is truly no other event like it. Spaces are limited and sell out every year; register now before it’s too late!

Meet with counsellors and visit private high schools in the UK

In 2023, BMI/THE launched two UK-based events dedicated to recruitment from the K-12 level.

Our Global International Schools Forum & Workshop invites secondary schools to London for 2 days of meetings and networking, giving you an exclusive opportunity to come face to face with senior high school counsellors from some of the best international and private schools across the world. About 20% of the counsellors will be from European schools, and you’ll have the chance to meet school reps from all other major recruiting regions including the Middle East, Africa, Asia and the Americas.

Just before that event, you can join our UK Recruitment Visits for a fully escorted 3-day roadshow. You’ll visit up to ten international and private high schools in England whose students have strong academic prowess and can afford a high quality education abroad. Spaces are limited so act fast if you are interested!

Online recruitment events for students in Western and Eastern Europe

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 dynamic online space called Talk Global Study, where you can connect and talk directly with European students who are actively in the process of researching and planning their future international studies. Over 1,000 schools, colleges and universities all over the world have used Talk Global Study, and every month the platform is generating thousands of live broadcasts and direct conversations between institutions and their future students.

Connect online with ambitious students in Western and Eastern Europe

European countries in focus: Cyprus, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Spain, Switzerland, Turkey, UK, Ukraine

Projected number of visitors per event: 1,200

Course level interest: Undergraduate 30%, Postgraduate 70%
