South America's foremost gathering for global universities to connect with counsellors from key private and international schools.

Bogota
3 October - 4 October 2024

South America International Schools Forum & Workshop

This event is truly unique in its ability to connect you with influential counsellors at the secondary school level across South America.

You will have exclusive access to senior counsellors and advisors at the top international and private high schools whose high-achieving students possess strong English language skills and a vibrant energy that lights up any classroom.

Each counsellor is being flown to Bogota and hosted by BMI/THE for the duration of the event.

We’re bringing the best to you – make sure you’re there!

Networking and pre-scheduled, private meetings with high school counsellors and leaders

BMI/THE helps you save time by meeting with key school leaders from up to ten countries all in one place.

Each participating counsellor has been vetted and specifically invited to the event based on their school’s record of students travelling abroad for higher education. On qualifying to attend, BMI pays for their flights, accommodation and all meals.

By hosting these college counsellors, they – and the participating international education institutions – will have plenty of time to get to know each other during the various networking breaks, lunches and the Gala Dinner. In addition, attendees are able to select who they wish to meet and pre-organise all appointments via Marcom, the online scheduling system.

Forge connections with crucial contacts early in the student journey

Each participating international education institution will be able to:

  • Target and pre-schedule meetings with specific high school counsellors and principals.
  • Conduct 26 private meetings over 2 days with the best schools in the entire region.
  • Network with all participating counsellors during the cocktail reception, gala dinner, plus lunches and coffee breaks each day.
  • 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.
