Fairs and Tours


Events update: Going virtual! We are focusing on what we can plan and do with a high degree of certainty in 2020, considering our collective health and safety and ongoing uncertainties for global travel and gatherings. We won’t be hosting any in-person events for the rest of the year, including our International University Fairs. Our Student Recruitment Tours will go on hiatus through June 2021. We will create virtual opportunities to connect students with CIS member universities.

Students who are looking to connect with CIS universities in 2020 can join the registry online. Or ask your university guidance counsellor for help. University admissions representatives around the world can access the contact details for students who are interested in international study opportunities, in particular region and programmes. 

International University Fairs in cooperation with IB Americas

The CIS-IB International College & University fairs provide an ideal opportunity for IB students and their school counsellors to talk face-to-face with admissions officials from over 70 member universities and colleges across the globe who understand the IB and who actively recruit IB graduates. Member universities understand and demonstrate a commitment to the IB through a clearly stated institutional recognition policy.

The fairs are designed for grade 11 and 12 students in schools which offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme (DP) and Career-related Programme (CP), as well as students in grade 10 who aspire to these two IB Diploma Programmes.

International University Fairs

CIS international university fairs offer an ideal opportunity for guidance counsellors, their students, and parents to talk face-to-face with admissions representatives from CIS member universities across the globe. Our member universities understand international school curricula and actively recruit students from all over the world.

These fairs are designed exclusively for secondary school students who aspire to study internationally.

Participation at the fairs is free.

School counsellors, this is a great opportunity to offer to your students.

Student Recruitment Tours

Groups of admissions officers from member universities travel to various regions around the world to visit schools and talk face-to-face with students and school counsellors. These admissions officers understand a variety of international school curricula and actively recruit students from all over the world.

These tours are led by experienced admissions officers from member universities who serve on our volunteer committees.
