Dedicated in-person and online recruitment opportunities for UK institutions

UK: The home of international education

BMI has worked with British institutions for over 35 years. The international student recruitment landscape has changed dramatically during this time, but the UK still retains its reputation as a top destination for international students – never more so than now.

As the global education industry becomes more crowded and with the cancellation of many UK-focused events, BMI has risen to the challenge to help UK-based providers capture market share from competing destinations. The BMI Study in the UK marketing initiative will provide extra support to enable British institutions to raise their profile.

At all of our student recruitment events around the world, BMI is:

  • Creating a dedicated UK-focused pavilion for students to meet British institutions.
  • Increasing our UK-related marketing budget to attract students focused on England, Northern Ireland, Scotland & Wales.
  • Embedding more UK-focused seminar content and information sessions into events.

Our schedule below offers a concise overview of opportunities awaiting you in the key recruitment markets of Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Mexico, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, and throughout the Gulf region.

In-person and/or virtual… the choice is yours!
