Background information

International education has surged over the past two decades, emerging as a major export for many of the world’s most developed economies and the lifeblood of many education institutions. Over a million overseas students study in the UK each year and over 700,000 students are enrolled on UK HE programmes abroad.

Yet the future presents a more complex and volatile environment, with maturing markets, rising political risk and increasing competition. Institutions must ask themselves whether they should adapt to survive these challenging conditions, or reach for new heights and accept the risk of more drastic transformations.

IES conference 2018 will explore this question, focusing on the changes happening around us in markets, systems, technology and people. The event will provide solutions to futureproof international marketing strategies to ensure competitiveness in the global market place.

The conference will focus on the following core areas:

  • Strategy: Exploring how the world is changing and how we can navigate for success.
  • Innovation: Fresh approaches for connecting with international students worldwide.
  • Intelligence: Exploring external influences on international student recruitment, providing cutting-edge analysis to inform and future-proof international marketing strategies.
