About ICEF Virtual French Education

Outside France, Canada is the study destination of choice for international students looking to study in French. There are lots of reasons for this: Canada has consistently proven to be popular for students thanks to its outstanding education providers and comparatively low cost; Canada boasts a stable political environment; it is a safe and welcoming setting for international students; and the country offers straightforward access to study and work permits. All of these factors combine to make Canada a hugely attractive destination for French language programmes.

Each year, ICEF French Education attracts dozens of educators, industry service providers, and specialised international agents who send thousands of students and youth travellers to Canada annually. In 2020, we are taking ICEF French Education online to continue to connect professionals from the international education industry with an interest in Canadian French-language courses.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to connect with stand out student recruitment professionals in this specialised field.

Programme & Seminars

This year, ICEF Virtual French Education will take place on 15 - 16 September, and will feature 80 screened education agents from around 30 countries. To ensure a streamlined and focused agenda, we keep the agenda to 2 days, helping you efficiently forge new relationships in a compact timeframe.

You can build your own personalised programme of around 30 one-to-one video meetings with existing and would-be partners of interest. You will also be able to access our extensive range of seminars providing up-to-date information and the latest market trends and issues currently impacting French-language teaching in Canada. These are all optional and will be available to you on demand both during and after the event, so you can build your schedule to suit you.

This unmatched agenda of personalised video meetings and informative webinars provides the most cost-effective way to keep up with the latest developments as well as existing and new partners during current travel limitations.
