Date: 15 - 16 March 2019
Location: The International Academy - Amman, Jordan

This event was for universities interested in recruiting talented students from the Middle East and for secondary schools in the Middle East that want to connect with universities around the globe. As a counsellor in the Middle East, we want to help you be even better equipped to guide your students through international admissions.

The two-day Institute was designed for CIS member schools and universities to learn about education systems in the Middle East and admission requirements in the USA, Europe, and beyond. The Institute brought together school counsellors from the Middle East and university admission representatives from CIS member universities around the globe.

Key features include:
  • professional development sessions
  • small group discussions
  • school fair for university representatives
  • university fair for school guidance counsellors
  • university fair for students
