Establish and strengthen your network with counsellors from the world's best international, bilingual and private high schools.

London, UK
29-30 April 2024

Strengthen your links with the best private and international schools across the world

BMI’s flagship International Schools Forum & Workshop provides an exclusive opportunity for you to meet one-on-one with senior high school counsellors from top international and private high schools from across the world.

Reinforce your brand and your unique educational offering with a focused opportunity to widen your network with influential counsellors who actively prepare and advise their students on the next stages of their academic careers.

Each participating counsellor has been selected and specifically invited to the event based on their school’s record of students travelling abroad for higher education. On qualifying to attend, BMI pays for their flights to the UK, accommodation and all meals.

In total, over 100 of the leading high school counsellors from around the world will travel to London for the event, which takes place in late April 2024.

Networking and pre-scheduled private meetings that will grow your global network of high school counsellors

Each counsellor is being flown to London and hosted by BMI for the duration of the event. This will therefore give them – and the participating international education institutions – plenty of time to get to know each other during the various networking breaks, lunches and the Gala Dinner.

Each participating international education institution will be able to:

  • Target and pre-organise meetings with specific high school counsellors.
  • Conduct 26 pre-scheduled private meetings with counsellors over 2 days.
  • Network with all participating counsellors during the lunch and coffee breaks each day.
  • Participate and network during the Welcome Reception and Gala Dinner.

Supporting the professional development of school counsellors

With so much variance in international 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 Program (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.
