International educators, service providers, and student recruitment agents from Ukraine.
The 2nd annual ICEF Ukraine Focus gives international educators and service providers the opportunity to meet top-quality student recruitment agents from across Ukraine at one focused event.
Ukrainian students have a clear international orientation and 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 attending ICEF Ukraine are carefully selected and are required to pass ICEF’s strict screening process. Agents must provide multiple references from current business partners, as well as proof of ethical business practices, and a successful track record of placing students at international institutions.
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 ICEF Moscow and the ICEF Central Asia Focus 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.
