Connect with counsellors and principals from top private, bilingual and international schools across Southeast Asia.

7-8 March 2024

Southeast Asia International Schools Forum & Workshop

To help you widen your network with those who actively advise and prepare their secondary school students for higher education overseas, we are flying in participants from the best schools across the whole of Southeast Asia.

In total, over 85 of the leading high school counsellors from around the region will travel to Vietnam for the event, which takes place in early March 2024.

This will therefore give them – and the participating international education institutions – plenty of time to get to know each other during the various networking breaks, lunches and the gala dinner. In addition, you’ll be able to select the specific high school representatives you wish to meet and pre-organise all of your appointments via Marcom, the online scheduling system.

Connect with key decision makers from 6 countries across Southeast Asia

BMI/THE will reference-check counsellors and only choose those from schools with a strong record of sending students abroad for higher education. On qualifying to attend, BMI/THE pays for their flights to HCMC, accommodation and all meals.

Don’t miss this unique event which gives you the chance to meet and mingle with influential school contacts who can put your brand in front of aspiring international students and sow the seeds for studying abroad from early on.

Hold private meetings with Southeast Asia’s best high school counsellors and leaders

This exclusive event gives you access to decision-makers and advisors at the top international and private high schools throughout Southeast Asia.

  • Target and pre-organise 28 private meetings with specific principals and high school counsellors.
  • Create and solidify relationships throughout the 2-day event at exceptional networking functions including the cocktail 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.
