Chile - Colombia - Mexico - Panama - Peru

Recruit from Latin America’s top international student markets.

ExpoEstudiante: Your recruitment platform in Latin America

ExpoEstudiante is the most well-established international education fair series in the Americas, delivering outstanding results for 24 consecutive years.

Access the world’s most lively and energetic students through a series of strategic recruitment opportunities throughout Spanish-speaking Latin America, covering the major student markets of Chile, Colombia, Mexico and Peru.

Don’t miss your opportunity to meet and recruit vivacious students who have both the academic and financial ability to study abroad and are in the final stage of selecting their course and institution.

Recruiting students in Chile

Chile is the only South American OECD member and is recognised as the strongest performing economy in the region. The country has the highest human development index and GDP per capita in Latin America.

To fuel outbound student mobility and increase interest in postgraduate studies abroad, the Chilean government continues to fund their popular Becas Chile scholarship programme. Meanwhile, their “Penguins without Borders” programme funds the best high school students to study for six months in New Zealand or Canada at the secondary school level.

BMI attracts more than 6,500 visitors to their student recruitment fairs in Chile annually. As the international education market in Chile is maturing, Chilean students are looking for a range of opportunities overseas including language, undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

The ExpoEstudiante March fair will also feature a EuroPosgrados pavilion in both Santiago and Concepción.

Colombia: A rich source of amazing students

The demand for language courses, undergraduate and postgraduate programmes has been booming in Colombia and the outlook for international student mobility remains strong for the years ahead. As one of the hottest markets for international student recruitment, Colombia deserves a key place in your marketing mix.

BMI has organised fairs in Colombia since 1996 and has also operated the annual EuroPosgrados Colombia on behalf of Campus France and DAAD since 2010. The March 2019 fair edition will also feature a separate EuroPosgrados pavilion in all three Colombian cities (Cali, Medellín and Bogotá), making it the perfect platform for European institutions to recruit at the postgraduate level.

Mexico: The second largest student market in Latin America

Backed by more than 30 years of experience running fairs across Latin America and Brazil, as well as in the Middle East and Asia, BMI is proud to take you to three of the most important student recruitment cities in Mexico in 2019.

After Brazil, Mexico has the second largest economy and population in the region, which makes it a natural addition to your recruitment itinerary. A healthy appetite for overseas education and various government-backed initiatives to encourage outbound mobility makes Mexico a ripe market for recruiters who are keen to welcome its vivacious students to their campus.

Peru on the rise

The Peruvian economy has experienced a boom in recent years and as a result, there has been increasing interest in Peru as a student recruitment market.

Education institutions have increased their engagement in Peru’s capital city Lima since the government launched the “Pronabec Becas de la República” programme – a government initiative to increase funding for postgraduate courses. The government in Peru has, over the last few years, made a whole range of scholarship programmes available, some of which have had a very positive effect on student mobility.

With Peru developing well economically, and becoming more outward looking in its quest to develop human capital, it is an exciting time to be recruiting in Peru.
