ICEF for online learning providers

The online learning market is booming. Since the lockdown of 2020, conventional education institutions have been forced to adopt hybrid learning environments and they have fast become serious players in the sector.

Much of the credit for the rapid growth belongs to the student recruitment agencies, who serve as both valued business partners to educators and trusted advisors to millions of international students.

The ICEF event on Student Recruitment for Online Programmes was just great. In 2 days, we virtually travelled around the globe with many interesting potential business contacts. 3 years ago, it would have taken several weeks. Even the scheduling was done with one click. It couldn’t have been better! Many thanks to the ICEF organisation team for the great innovative event format! We are already looking forward to the next edition!

“The ICEF Student Recruitment for Online Programmes event, was my first experience with ICEF, and working with agents. I was happy to see the number, variety, sizes and country groups the agents came from. On the whole, the quality was very good, and even have an agent partnership that has enrolled students onto my courses within a month of the event! My ICEF Account Manager, has also supported with everything I needed to know before, during and after the event, assisting in many aspects of getting the agency ball rolling. I’m looking forward to doing more work with my Account Manager and ICEF, to help steadily grow my student enrolment numbers and agent partner network.”
