Student Recruitment

As part of our shared commitment to developing global citizenship in education we can help you expand the diversity of your campus by connecting you with more than 745 CIS member schools in 123 countries.

As part of our shared commitment to developing global citizenship in education, use your network of Your CIS membership gives you access to our global network of international school guidance counsellors and provides you with opportunities to engage with students who are looking to begin their higher education internationally.

Our experienced staff and higher education volunteers can support you in conducting effective international student recruitment.

Whether your institution is big or small, we'll help you raise the global visibility of your institution.

 

In 2021, the way we all work continues to evolve and presents new ways for us to create opportunities to support you.

Our adjusted strategy focuses on what we can do with a high degree of certainty, and on our collective health and safety. Our work continues to help you raise the visibility of your institution with students around the world while also supporting students applying to higher education institutions internationally.

New virtual and regionally-focused events include University Exploration Days. These events will connect you with 1,100+ students from schools across chosen regions. Schools are committed to prioritising the events for student participations, esuring they can gather information and meet university admissions representatives around the world. By providing a group video chat link of your choice, you can be 'live' throughout the event so that students can drop-in to your live group chats for your guidance. 

Our annual Global Forum on International Admission & Guidance went virtual with great success in 2020, bringing together more than 1,000 university admissions professionals with university guidance counsellors. Save the date for our 2021 Forum on 16–18 November.

Join your peers for member-only informal virtual Hangouts to share knowledge and updates from across the university guidance community and webinars on latest topics and trends in international admissions.

As our plans take shape for the future of international student recruitment fairs, we’ll keep you updated here on the CIS Community portal and via our Member Update newsletters.
