Who is this Forum for?

Our CIS Forum is for university guidance counsellors at CIS member schools and university admissions colleagues at CIS member universities who want to keep up to date on developments and effective practices within international admission and guidance.

Check if your school is a CIS member in our membership directory. If you are not yet a CIS member, learn more about CIS membership for schools and universities.


Stay an extra day in Dublin for a new CIS workshop on how to identify and reduce bias and increase access in student guidance, recruitment, selection and admission processes. It’s part of our community-wide workshop series for inclusion via diversity, equity, & anti-racism (I-DEA), which we are expanding to include a learning opportunity tailored for university admission and guidance professionals. We scheduled it to conveniently follow directly after our Global Forum in International Admission & Guidance in Dublin. Learn more and register.
