Sowing the seeds

Today, students are going abroad at younger and younger ages, whether it be to refine their language skills, experience other cultures, gain confidence and independence, or increase their chances of acceptance at a well-ranked higher education institution overseas.

This desire to explore the possibility of an international education often starts in the early teenage years when students are hungry for options and helpful advisors and guidance counsellors can steer them in the right direction.

Given that they work with students on a regular basis and see them day in and day out, secondary school counsellors have a good sense of what students need and which type of educational environment will enable each one to flourish.

This makes them an invaluable resource for international institutions who are keen to understand market demand and tap into an influential audience early in the student journey.

Networking workshops that connect you with high school counsellors and principals

For this reason, BMI has developed various events exclusively aimed at the high school market, such as our International Schools Forum & Workshop and our chauffeured trips to leading international high schools held on-campus either just before or after our main student recruitment fairs.

While you can meet principals and counsellors during these high school visits, if you really want to strengthen your relationships with them, then our International Schools Forums & Workshops are your best bet. Beyond our flagship event, BMI Global International Schools Workshop & Forum in London, you have the exclusive opportunity to meet and network with K-12 leaders and advisors at regional events in Colombia, Brazil, the Gulf and Vietnam.

These workshops help you solidify relationships via private meetings and networking functions

Conveniently timed at the start of each series of recruitment events in each region, the BMI International Schools Forum & Workshop gives you the opportunity to hold over a dozen pre-scheduled private meetings with K-12 school counsellors and principals.

The event kicks off with a cocktail reception and dinner on the evening of the first day, facilitating a relaxed environment to mingle and network with this influential audience working in top private schools that offer an international curriculum and have a track record for sending sizable numbers of students and alumni abroad.

On Day 2, you’ll sit down to 15 pre-arranged meetings, converse over coffee breaks, and enjoy a wonderful lunch – saving time by meeting new and current K-12 partners all in one location and maximising your visit in each city.
