Conferences & events for university guidance

CIS offers a unique opportunity to facilitate links between guidance/university counsellors in schools and international university admissions professionals worldwide. Together, they support students in the transition from school to university. Through in-person and virtual conferences, regional institutes, college & university fairs and events, we aim to enhance communication and provide networking opportunities for guidance counsellors, colleges and universities across our global community.

Data Protection & Cybersecurity Workshop

It is increasingly important for international schools to understand data protection and cybersecurity, yet leaders struggle to understand what actions are required and how to comply with new legal requirements such as GDPR.

The workshop content is based on recent data protection and cybersecurity research and will provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to strengthen your associated policies and procedures in line with CIS accreditation standards.
