The ICEF Higher Education Workshop facilitates targeted, prescheduled, one-to-one business meetings between tertiary educators, selected higher education-focussed agents and relevant service providers.

Agents play a crucial role in the continued growth of the higher education sector. Agents act as in-market representatives for institutions and provide culturally-aware counselling to students in their native languages. Agents also monitor enrolment criteria prior to application, streamlining the entire process and delivering informed students.

In 2014, a total of 114 tertiary educators and 28 exhibitors met with 136 specialist agents from 47 countries around the world. Each agency at the event was carefully selected to meet the recruitment goals of the attending institutions. As a result educators were able to find best agents to meet their specific needs.

ICEF is renowned for selecting and inviting only the most professional and relevant agents to attend their events. This reputation was established, and is maintained, through ICEF’s stringent selection and screening process. Agents are required to provide verifiable data on their business practices, performance, and must also supply recent references from higher education partners. These steps, among other things, ensure that no time is wasted.

In 2015, The ICEF Higher Education Workshop will take place immediately before the EAIE Conference, also in Glasgow, allowing educators to easily attend both events.
