Event programme, seminars, & meetings

Opening the first day, the ICEF Monitor Global Summit provides an engaging programme designed to foster discussions around the trends and pressing challenges facing the international higher education sector, including topics such as: exchange programmes, transnational education (TNE), and collaborative online learning (COIL). Led by world-class speakers and experts in the field, our seminars empower industry professionals, while roundtable discussions provoke debate and provide opportunities for peer-to-peer learning.

In addition, you will benefit from a seminar track dedicated entirely to accommodation. With sessions, presentations, and discussion panels led by key stakeholders in student accommodation, international education and related sector associations, the stream will touch on a range of topics related to international student accommodation and the housing crises evident in many major study destinations. A pavilion of student accommodation and related service providers will be situated next to the conference room.

With networking a major component of ICEF events, although participants can register for the summit only, the full, three-day ICEF Higher Education offers the opportunity to build a personalised schedule of up to 38 one-to-one meetings with partners and pre-screened, quality education agents that meet your specific student recruitment needs.

Registration is available for day one only, or all three days.
