Why Should a Destination Attract Students?

  • They bring talent, inspiration, and diversity.
  • They stay longer and spend more than tourists, and are visited by friends and family.
  • After their studies, they become life-long ambassadors for the destination once they return home.
  • Countries facing demographic decline and welcoming migration are able to attract educated new citizens.

Why Participate?

  • Learn how destinations around the world are attracting international students.
  • Examine how to effectively use social media and technology to share the student experience at your destination.
  • See how destinations are effectively engaging with education agents to promote themselves.
  • Learn what impacts the international student decision on a study destination.
  • Participate in additional networking opportunities at the ICEF Berlin Workshop – the student recruitment flagship event.
