Seminar for HE recruiters

A seminar for higher education recruiters on developing international student admissions will be held at the University of Reading

What are the best ways for universities and colleges to maximise their international undergraduate recruitment? A seminar sponsored by The International School Consultancy Group will help higher education international recruitment managers to maximise opportunities with the unique and increasingly important international schools sector.

The International School Consultancy Group (ISC) is the only research organisation in the world focusing exclusively on the international schools market; a market it has been researching for over twenty years. According to ISC data, 3.4 million students currently attend the world’s English-speaking international schools and more than 5,000 international schools have upper school students; a high proportion of whom have their sights set on tertiary education overseas. Taaleem, a group of international schools in the UAE and GCC region is one example.

Clive Pierrepont, head of communications at Taaleem said: “Over 90% of our students go on to university, well above the UK average of 50%.”

Taaleem students have been accepted into a range of colleges and universities around the world, primarily in the UK and USA.

So how are international schools different to other schools delivering international student intake for universities and colleges, and what is the best way to reach them? The Maximising International Opportunities seminar will provide valuable and practical tips and guidance for international student recruitment managers to best understand the growing market, find out about developing regions, learn how to work directly with international schools for best results, and also find out what international schools want from university admissions to help their students make the best possible higher education choices.

The one day seminar will be held on Monday February 24th 2014 at The University of Reading.
