Putting students first

Savvy students and parents have more options than ever when researching institutions. Your brand will move on and off a student’s radar during a period of time, lasting anywhere from a few weeks to several years.

Nothing can compare to a face to face conversation with prospective students to reinforce your brand and your unique educational offering, bringing them one step closer to enrolment. That’s why thousands of institutions around the world have relied on our student fairs for over 30 years and continue to embrace the opportunity to connect in-person with aspirational foreign students and their families.

And for those of you recruiting in Brazil and Latin America, our marketing platform Viva-Mundo allows you to reach students online 24/7, with ample opportunities to engage prospective applicants, provide decision-critical information and brand-endearing inspiration.

Student recruitment fairs

As an essential element in your recruitment portfolio, BMI’s international student recruitment fairs consistently draw in thousands of students and families year on year in dozens of cities around the world.

With so many choices in international education today, being able to introduce your institution, sell your strengths and explain your requirements during a face to face conversation can make an impression that can last for years to come.

As students are firming up their ideas of where to study and parents have questions that need answering, an engaging discussion has the power to usher them through the decision making process along their journey towards enrolment.

Whether it’s at one of our international student recruitment fairs dedicated to language courses, undergraduate degree programmes or postgraduate studies, BMI fairs will connect you at that crucial point when a student is selecting their course abroad. And thanks to BMI’s SmartScan App, you’ll be able to collect student data on the spot which feeds directly into your CRM, so you can nurture each lead and track your event ROI.

High school visits and on-campus fairs

To bolster your recruitment efforts in select cities, BMI takes a limited number of accredited institutions to visit private high schools which have been carefully selected for their quality curriculum and their enthusiasm to proactively prepare their students for studying abroad.

At each school, you will participate in an on-campus fair that will directly connect you with senior students, parents and high school counsellors.
