In addition to the many business meetings, StudyWorld delegates can also schedule meetings with experts on safeguarding, accreditation and UK visas at the StudyWorld advice zone this September.
The StudyWorld advice zone is a great place to ask questions, discuss details and explore the legislation, rules and best practice unique to your offer.
Conference Producer Tom Weatherley said: “We try to support StudyWorld delegates in a holistic way. We want you to be as successful as possible which means not only facilitating excellent business meetings and creating networking opportunities, but also providing expertise and inspirational speakers to spark the ideas that will help you enhance your business.”
Our experts will be able to provide practical guidance and information so you can make the most of your time out of the office and ensure you are providing the best possible experience to your students.
Tom added: “The advice zone is key part of StudyWorld’s professional development programme and a great way to get answers to your questions on a one-to-one basis during the event.
“There is always something new to learn at StudyWorld.”
