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

Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam
March 2025

Connect with the entire Southeast Asian region in just one place

You could spend months traveling across Southeast Asia to find the region’s best schools and set up visits, or you could join our two-day event where we bring the entire region to you – all under one roof.

The participating counselors have been meticulously chosen based on the volume of students who pursue higher education abroad. Moreover, their schools have exhibited unwavering dedication to fostering the counseling role and promoting international study opportunities.

What types of schools from Southeast Asia will be there?

BMI/THE extends exclusive invitations to attendees from the most esteemed private, bilingual, and international schools across Southeast Asia.

This gives you the opportunity to connect with counsellors who actively shape the future study decisions of bright young students. Importantly, these counsellors will play a pivotal role in their final university application process.

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

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

How we ensure you meet face-to-face with key student influencers in Asia

Our outreach team in Asia have long standing relationships with high performing schools across the region. Using our local knowledge, we are able to engage with principals and counsellors to invite them to the event and explain how meeting with international university partners will help them improve the way they counsel students and parents.

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

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

New accreditation programme for counsellor's Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

High school counsellors are also attracted to the Southeast Asia International Schools Forum & Workshop because they can participate in professional development seminars that tackle key issues such as academic testing, how to improve the counselling profession, and managing various visa processes. This extra academic content and training provides school counsellors and principals with credits towards completing the Times Higher Education Counsellor Accreditation Programme (THE CAP). By completing THE CAP, they will have a globally recognised accreditation and their school will become a THE Accredited Counsellor School.

This compelling programme ensures that we attract the right high schools for you to meet, train and form new relationships with in order to encourage outbound student mobility.
