Why attend the India International Schools Forum & Workshop?

Simply put, there is no other international event in India 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 Goa
  • Three nights of deluxe hotel accommodation (on a twin-shared basis)
  • Welcome cocktail reception and dinner on the evening of Tuesday 22 October 2024
  • Networking cocktail reception and dinner on the evening of Wednesday 23 October 2024
  • Buffet breakfast, coffee breaks, and gourmet lunches on 23, 24 and 25 October 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 Tuesday 22 and Friday 25 October 2024, at the Westin Goa in Goa. 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 28 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 Goa for the second counsellor.

Hotel Check-in: 22 October 2024
Hotel Check-out: 25 October 2024

Buffet breakfast on 23, 24 and 25 October 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 Wednesday 23 October 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 Goa by 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.
     
  • Participate in a series of world-class professional development sessions as part of the Times Higher Education Counsellor Accreditation Programme (THE CAP).

The India 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 India International Schools Forum & Workshop in Goa, India.

The workshop is limited to 50 counsellors across India.
