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

Your trip includes our main events plus fairs held in top private and international schools.

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 two major cities in just six days.

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

A dedicated area for GEMS UniConnect partners features 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.

If you are a GEMS UniConnect partner please contact us to understand the special benefits and pricing afforded to you when exhibiting in 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 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.
