StudyWorld is the major trade event for UK education. We are delighted to announce that we will be showcasing the independent school sector with a village for UK independent schools in 2019 once again.
Over 50 different buyer markets are represented at StudyWorld, giving independent schools a great opportunity to diversify their international student recruitment and find new markets to supplement traditionally strong boarding school markets.
Caroline Nixon, general secretary for the British Association of Independent Schools with International Students (BASIS), said: “Boarding schools are making great new contacts and it’s working really well. StudyWorld has lots of good contacts and it’s a great venue, which really showcases the UK.”
We pride ourselves on the professional nature of the event, everything from the location and facilities, to the care we take in vetting agents and buyers. The support of the Education is GREAT campaign lends an additional prestige to the event.
Unlike other events in the market, independent and boarding schools make up only one section of the exhibitors. In 2018, 15 independent schools attended out of a total 130 UK educators.
Non-stop networking at StudyWorld
Independent schools that attend get a great ratio of buyers to schools. More than 40% of the 300 agents expected at StudyWorld sent students to a UK boarding school in the past year and more than 90% to summer short courses.
The whole range of the UK education sector is represented at StudyWorld, from language schools to higher education. Meetings with other sectors can spark new ideas, promote best practice and facilitate new partnerships. Our seminar programme will discuss the latest trends in the UK education market and develop new ways to deal with local and global challenges.
StudyWorld is about showcasing the entire UK education sector and celebrating the journey that students make through the different UK education options. Every delegate in the room shares the goal of promoting the UK education system as the best in the world.
