International education agents are traveling to Dubai this February to meet and form new partnerships with educational institutions from across the UAE at the Study in the UAE Agent Workshop.
Join us for 2 days of meetings, networking and building relationships with student recruitment agents from around the world.
UAE - A destination on the rise
With 2020 on the horizon, the education industry in the UAE continues to grow in both size and quality, making it one of the leading educational hubs in the world.
How will UAE-based institutions increase their international student numbers in order to meet their rising enrolment targets?
Recruiters working at institutions in the UAE know that one of the most effective strategies they can have is a strong network of educational travel agents around the world who can represent them and send them students.
BMI helps international student recruiters make those connections at the Study in UAE Agent Workshop in Dubai.
Hold 21 one-to-one meetings with carefully pre-screened education agents, scheduled in advance using the Marcom system.
Strengthen new relationships
Experience an integrated programme including a networking reception, lunches and dinner to complement your meetings, allowing you to strengthen new relationships in a relaxed environment.
Maximise your budget
Attend another BMI event (we run 60+ a year!) and take advantage of our package discounts for events in the UAE and around the world.
The Study in the UAE Agent Workshop is specifically designed for UAE-based educational institutions.
We maintain an attendance ratio of two agents for each institution to ensure that you meet with enough prospective partners to grow your enrolments. At the same time, we know that you need a small enough crowd to help you forge and solidify relationships.
After two days, you’ll be able to leave knowing every agent, and just as importantly, they’ll know you.
This is a limited capacity event and spaces are going fast!
Take advantage of these additional recruitment events in the UAE
Due to the ever-increasing focus on education in the Gulf, we've devoted an entire series of education events in the UAE dedicated to international education, student recruitment and academic partnerships.
UAE International Education Week happens every October, receiving government support and region-wide press coverage. The week consists of our international schools forum dedicated to the K-12 sector, followed by our main student fairs and chauffeured trips to high schools in Dubai and Abu Dhabi (which also run in March), and culminates with the lavish BMI Gulf Scholarship Summit.
High School Counselors
Giving you the unique ability to connect with influential leaders at the secondary school level across the Gulf, you'll mix and mingle with up to 50 principals and counsellors from Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia and the UAE. Hold 13 meetings and network with school leaders who advise teenagers and their parents on the next steps in their academic career.
Meet thousands of affluent local and expat students as well as those funded via national scholarship programmes during your 2-city trip, which includes our main fairs plus escorted visits to top private and international schools.
This high-level networking event connects you with the heads of over 50 scholarship programmes from 7 countries across the Gulf so you can find new educational partners and sign agreements to receive funded students that best match your institution. The Summit is government-supported and serves as the grand finale to our series of student recruitment events that make up UAE International Education Week.
