Continued professional development: included for everyone
At StudyWorld, we are united by our passion for education and our free industry seminars are an important part of the experience.
Start your StudyWorld experience on Monday with seminars from industry experts and top speakers. Our seminar programme is open to all delegates and covers all aspects of international education, including trends, forecasting, student care, export and marketing tips and much more.
Monday’s seminars take place from around midday to the early evening.
How to add seminars to your meeting schedule
To add seminars to your meeting schedule, log into Marcom eSchedule PRO and navigate to seminars in the blue bar. There you use the plus button to add the sessions to your schedule.
Note – adding sessions to your schedule will not automatically block the time slot!
Tuesday and Wednesday’s seminars run during meeting hours. So if there is a session you definitely want to attend, remember to block out the relevant meeting slots in your schedule to avoid double booking with a meeting. There are no meeting slots during the keynote speaker.
