About this event

ICEF Virtual Higher Education is a dedicated online networking event specifically designed to meet the networking needs of the international higher education sector.

Now more so than ever before, student recruitment agents play a crucial role in the growth of the higher education sector, connecting discerning education institutions with eager students, as well as providing culturally-aware counselling to students and their families. These agents also monitor enrollment criteria, streamlining the entire student recruitment process.

In 2021, this conference returns for its 14th edition to connect international tertiary education institutions, selected higher education-focused agents, and relevant service providers. Over 3 days, event attendees will network virtually, and learn more about emerging trends within the sector.



Educators and service providers can attend ICEF Virtual Higher Education for just €1,940 per participant. Discounts are available to attendees when multiple participations are booked at the same time, making your attendance even more cost-effective. Please contact us for further details.

We are proud to welcome carefully-vetted student recruitment agents to this event for free, provided they successfully complete ICEF’s rigorous screening process which ensures that educational institutions meet only with the most qualified agents who have a demonstrated history of successful student placement.
