Major changes for StudyWorld 2017

StudyWorld is moving to a new venue and focusing on UK education only from 2017.

Next September the event will be held at the QEII Centre in central London, and will feature more flexible attendance packages, wider opportunities to create partnerships, and more appointment slots.

Quality agents and UK educators and service providers will remain at the heart of the event. But the changes will make it easier to meet business-critical contacts, and create cross-sector and global partnerships for large and small organisations alike.

English UK, organisers of StudyWorld, have decided to align the event more closely with its role of promoting the UK and its ELT sector.

It believes the changes will put StudyWorld at the forefront of the international education market, where major government and business contracts are becoming as important as agent-educator partnerships.

The changes were announced on Monday night at StudyWorld 2016, the last to be held in the London Hilton Metropole. “After many months of work, we’re delighted to finally reveal our really exciting plans for StudyWorld,” said English UK’s new chief executive, Sarah Cooper. “We believe it is the right time to make radical changes: we have concluded that the focus of StudyWorld should be more closely aligned to English UK’s strategy and remit, which has always been about promoting the UK and its ELT sector.

“Our new event will also enable those across the full range of the UK educator sector, from educators to examiners, to work together and for governments, international organisations and agents alike to be able to make the contacts and the partnerships they need to thrive. StudyWorld really is a must-attend for anyone interested in what the UK has to offer, and our new flexibility means it will work for everyone.

“We welcome everyone – from the smallest agencies to the largest organisations – who is serious about doing business here.”
