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

Mumbai, India
November 2024

Find new school partners deeper in India

Over 1 million students graduate each year from English-medium schools in India. With limited university spaces for even the best and brightest at home, getting an undergraduate degree abroad has become just as popular as international postgraduate degrees.

But in a crowded, competitive market like India, having the right partners – especially early in the student journey – is essential.

That’s why our event is designed to help you expand your network with bilingual and international schools in the country’s thriving metropolitan cities. In November 2024, we’re bringing the region’s top school counsellors into the financial capital of the country for an event like no other. There, over 2 days, you will come face to face with counsellors from Mumbai and beyond such as Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Bengaluru, Bihar, Chennai, Dehradun, Delhi, Gurgaon, Hamirpur, Hyderabad, Indore, Jaipur, Kolkata, Lucknow, Mussoorie, Nagpur, Noida, Patna, Pune, Surat, and Visakhapatnam.

Wondering which secondary schools you will meet in Mumbai?

Participating counsellors from India’s most economically advanced cities have been meticulously chosen from the country’s esteemed private, bilingual, and international schools. Moreover, these institutions believe in supporting their counsellors with professional development opportunities to help them promote the best higher education options for their students.

Participating elite schools come from a range of profiles such as:

  • International schools including but not limited to the US, Canadian, British, French, German, and Australian curriculum.
  • Secondary schools that prepare students for GCSEs or A levels.
  • K-12 schools following the International Baccalaureate (IB) or Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) programme.
  • Private, bilingual, and gifted schools.
  • Religion-affiliated schools.

Get in touch with us to learn more about the schools that will attend.

In-person accreditation and training is a big draw for Indian counsellors

High school counsellors are also attracted to the India International Schools Forum & Workshop because they can participate in professional development seminars which form part of a global accreditation programme. For busy counsellors, this training is invaluable in the breadth and depth of insights shared, tackling key issues such as academic testing, how to improve the counselling profession, and managing various visa processes. Through expert-generated resources and thought-provoking discussions, THE CAP helps improve the way counsellors advise students and parents.

This extra academic content and training provides school counsellors and principals with credits towards completing the Times Higher Education Counsellor Accreditation Programme (THE CAP), which will give them a globally recognised accreditation and their school will become a THE Accredited Counsellor School.

BMI/THE’s compelling programme ensures that we attract the right high schools for you to meet, train and strengthen relationships with in order to open up more pathways to your institution for talented Indians.

Meet India's best high school counsellors in person

Given the unique nature of this event, spaces will sell out quickly. Reserve yours early to avoid disappointment.
