About the Agent Focus

The new ICEF Ukraine Focus gives international educators and service providers the opportunity to meet top-quality student recruitment agents from Ukraine at one focused event.

Ukrainian students have a clear international orientation and have a strong demand for study abroad, mostly driven by their motivation to improve their English skills and to access a higher standard of education. The country’s recent political changes and educational reforms have shifted the Ukrainian study abroad market abruptly, increasing the need for professional education agents.

All agents at this event are carefully screened, providing multiple references from business partners, records of recent student activity and proof of business ethics. Each agent is individually selected by the ICEF Agent Team through personal contact to ensure utmost quality and a productive experience.

Up to 22 meetings can be pre-scheduled using ICEF’s customised software, allowing you to meet with partners best suited for your recruitment needs. Before the event, each participant will have access to their prospective partners’ profiles, enabling them to identify the educational sectors and programmes they are most interested in. Additionally, all participants will have access to professional development seminars and networking events to further increase their industry knowledge and professional network.

The ICEF Ukraine Focus is scheduled conveniently just before the ICEF Moscow Workshop and gives participants a chance to effectively target their marketing efforts in Ukraine, as well as in Russia and Eastern Europe all in one trip.
