Why attend the China International Schools Forum & Workshop?

Simply put, there is no other international event in China that offers so many benefits for its school counsellors.

We recognise the crucial work counsellors do in advising students across the region, and the need for you to continuously build upon your knowledge, skill set and global network. That’s why this event has been specifically designed to aid your understanding of international admissions practices and make the right kind of contacts around the world.

Benefits of participation

This event is only for high school counsellors who have applied to participate. If approved, participation is free of charge and includes the following benefits:

  • Return air ticket from the closest major international airport in your country to/from Beijing
  • Three nights of deluxe hotel accommodation (on a twin-shared basis)
  • Welcome cocktail reception and dinner on the evening of Monday 3 November 2024
  • Networking cocktail reception and dinner on the evening of Tuesday 4 November 2024
  • Buffet breakfast, coffee breaks, and gourmet lunches on 4, 5 and 6 November 2024
  • Participation in THE CAP professional development sessions
  • 26 pre-scheduled individual meetings with international education institutions
  • Full-colour profile of your school in the official event handbook given to all international universities
  • Times Higher Education/BMI Certificate of Participation

Accommodation
All counsellors will receive up to three free nights of deluxe hotel accommodation depending on their location. Accommodation is on a shared twin-room basis, between Sunday 3rd to Wednesday 6th November 2024, at the The Westin Beijing Chaoyang Hotel in Beijing. The number of nights stay you will receive will be confirmed once your attendance to the event is confirmed.

Please note that there are a limited number of hotel rooms available, and they are assigned on a first-come, first-served basis. We therefore cannot guarantee rooms to counsellors applying after 10 June, 2024. Early registration is recommended, and we will confirm your room accommodation as soon as possible. Please note that If two counsellors from the same school are approved to participate, they must share the same room and must pay the air fare to Beijing for the second counsellor.

Hotel Check-in: 3 November 2024
Hotel Check-out: 6 November 2024

Buffet breakfast on 4, 5 and 6 November is included for counsellors who are staying at the hotel.

Networking Cocktail Reception and Dinner
The Cocktail Reception and Dinner is an important aspect of the event and will take place on the evening of Monday 4 November 2024. This is the perfect opportunity to meet other counsellors from across the region as well as the participating international education institutions in a relaxed environment.

In just three days, you will:

  • Meet experienced representatives from International Universities who have been flown into Beijing BMI/THE specifically for this event, as well as fellow counsellors from across the region.

  • Receive the latest updates on undergraduate admissions criteria and application procedures to International Universities.

The China International Schools Forum & Workshop is therefore a must-attend event for gathering new insights on international education, enhancing the way you support students applying overseas, and staying up-to-date on undergraduate admissions.

Register your school to participate in the China International Schools Forum & Workshop in Beijing, China.

This workshop is limited to 50 counsellors across China
