Recruit students via national scholarship programmes and from affluent expatriate groups that make up a vital recruitment demographic in the region.
This biannual fair enables you to meet thousands of students making their final study plans in two major cities in just six days.
And in the second half of 2019, join us in celebrating UAE International Education Week where we pack three different types of events into one smoothly organised series of recruitment opportunities.
Watch our accompanying video to hear our CEO explain what happens at BMI’s student recruitment fairs and why students and parents value them.
Partnership with GEMS Education's 49 private high schools in the UAE
New in March 2019, BMI will open a dedicated area for GEMS UniConnect partners inside the UAE Global Education Fair which will bring additional exposure for GEMS university partners and more options for local UAE students.
GEMS Education has a network of 49 UAE-based independent schools, all of whom will be invited to attend the fair, browse the GEMS Pavilion, and explore the rest of the fair to meet international education providers such as universities, colleges, language schools and vocational training centres.
This will be the only community-wide event for GEMS UniConnect partners this spring and is perfectly timed to enable institutions to recruit students for Fall 2019 enrolments.
Fairs in top private high schools
To bolster your recruitment efforts, BMI takes a limited number of accredited institutions to visit leading private Emirati and international schools in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
These exclusive schools have been carefully selected for their quality curriculum and their enthusiasm to proactively prepare their students for studying abroad. Being the UAE, a very high proportion of these students will travel overseas for their undergraduate studies.
At each school, you will participate in an on-campus fair that will directly connect you with senior students, parents and high school counsellors.
Meet thousands of affluent local and expat students as well as those funded via national scholarship programmes during your 2-city trip, which includes our main fairs plus escorted visits to top private and international schools.
Giving you the unique ability to connect with influential leaders at the secondary school level across the Gulf, you'll mix and mingle with up to 50 principals and counsellors from Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Hold 13 meetings and network with school leaders who advise teenagers and their parents on the next steps in their academic career.
This high-level networking event connects you with the heads of over 50 scholarship programmes from 7 countries across the Gulf so you can find new educational partners and sign agreements to receive funded students that best match your institution. The Summit is government-supported and serves as the grand finale to our series of student recruitment events that make up UAE International Education Week.
The best way to understand what happens at BMI education fairs is to join them! But in the meantime, to give you a small snapshot of what it feels like to walk through one of our event venues, watch our video for a quick tour of the UAE Global Education Fair held in Dubai last October.
