India's foremost gathering for global universities to connect with counsellors from the country's best private and international schools.

India International Schools Forum & Workshop

Recruiters are no strangers to India, whose year-on-year growth of outbound students has been outpacing China for the last 10 years. As the world’s second-largest sending market, India has proven to be one of the most reliable source countries when it comes to international enrolments. And with a healthy economy and strong youth population, forecasts are holding firm in the years ahead.

Yet it’s about more than just numbers. University places at home for the country’s best and brightest are extremely competitive, and young Indians are casting an ever-wider net when researching options abroad. So although universities may be able to attract Indian applicants, securing their enrolment is often another matter.

Here’s where close relationships with influencers such as high school counsellors really makes a difference.

Launching in November 2024 and building on the strength of our experience and network, BMI/THE is excited to host a new regional International Schools Forum & Workshop, giving you an exceptional opportunity to spend quality time face-to-face with India’s top school counsellors.

Tighten your relationships with influential counsellors from across India in one location

BMI/THE will reference-check counsellors and only choose those from the best schools with a strong record of sending students abroad for higher education. On qualifying to attend, BMI/THE pays for their flights to Mumbai, hotel room and meals. By controlling the selection process and facilitating their attendance, we are able to ensure that higher education institutions are meeting with the right influencers from across India’s top cities.

Once you are registered, you will be able to choose the specific high school representatives you’d like to meet and pre-organise all of your appointments using the online scheduling system Marcom. Plus, you can relax and unwind together during various networking breaks, lunches and the gala dinner. This mix of formal and casual interactions allows you to meet representatives from new schools you are not currently partnered with as well as reinforce your relationships with school contacts who put your brand in front of ambitious young Indians.

Hold face to face meetings with India’s best high school counsellors and leaders

This premium event gives you access to counsellors and advisors at the top international and private high schools from India’s Tier 1 and 2 cities.

  • Target and pre-organise 26 private meetings with specific principals and high school counsellors.
  • Create and solidify relationships throughout the 2-day event at exceptional networking functions including the welcome reception, gala dinner, lunches and coffee breaks.
  • Achieve ongoing exposure for your institution, whose profile and listing appear in the School Handbook given to each high school counsellor.
  • Access discounted hotel accommodation during the event.

How we ensure you make the right contacts at the K-12 level

With so much variety in global 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 Programme (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.

The fact that the counsellors and school leaders can obtain this extra professional development training and certification is a huge incentive for them to attend the Forum & Workshop. Hence, we are able to ensure that the best of the best participate in our event and are genuinely interested in improving their industry knowledge and global network.
