Meet affluent local and expat students making their final study plans.

UAE's most important global education fair

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 three major cities in one week.

And once a year, we also celebrate 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

BMI has a close working relationship with GEMS Education, which has a network of 49 UAE-based independent schools. This network of high-end schools is invited to attend our fair to meet international education providers such as universities, colleges, language schools and vocational training centres.

If you are a GEMS For Life University Partner, please contact us to understand the special benefits and pricing available to you when exhibiting at the UAE Global Education Fair.

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, Abu Dhabi and Sharjah.

These exclusive schools have been carefully selected for their quality curriculum and their enthusiasm to proactively prepare their students for studying abroad. Given their reputation in 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.
