Total Recruitment – Baku Autumn 2017

This weekend Studybritish.com hosted a full programme of recruitment activities for high-end UK universities in Baku, Azerbaijan.

“Thanks for a good event – we can always rely on you guys to deliver! As we know it’s about being targeted and I was pleased with the type of visitors to the fair”.
Joanne Jacobs, University of Manchester.

In a challenging market all channels are important to maximise recruitment opportunities, and Studybritish.com (a division of Levant Education) aims for a ‘Total Recruitment’ performance, with marketing initiatives including high school visits, online and social media, alumni events and the exhibition, our 10th since 2012.

With concerns about the economy in Azerbaijan and falling recruitment numbers, it was rewarding to see that the strength and appeal of UK education endures.

See you back in Baku next year !

Report: Turkey Spring 2013

UK Education Tour returned to Turkey in April for an intensive weekend of events in Istanbul and Ankara. 

The event coincided with the first sunny weekend of the year, ensuring that the students attending were high calibre, serious enquirers about studying in the UK. This event was the first to feature private interviews, where students booked slots for 1-to-1 sessions with UK university officers.

We also added value to this Spring’s event by adding school visits as part of the Tour, with visits to Robert College, MEF and TED Colleges, which were well received by university counsellors and students.

The UK Education Tour is successfully promoting UK education as a high quality, high value option for discerning students looking abroad for university and language education. In an exhibition obsessed market, UK Education Tour is the only UK-only, high-end event that limits participation and is organised independently. This year we were supported by UKTI in Turkey to increase the reach and effectiveness of marketing. 

“If you want to see hoards of people coming through the door, then the UKET fairs are probably not for you. If however you want to meet focused, qualified students in premier venues, then the UKET fairs should be your first choice when considering your marketing activities in Turkey”.David Thornber, Durham University (Turkey & Azerbaijan, November 2012).

UK Education Tour: Autumn Schedule

UK Education Tour promotes UK education through exhibitions, local networking opportunities and working with government agencies. Following successful events in Autumn 2011 and Spring 2012, we are delighted to confirm our schedule for Autumn 2012.

Iraq

UK Education Tour first exhibited in Erbil in November 2011; this Autumn will be our 3rd event in northern Iraq, and we will also visit Sulaymaniyah.

The KRG Human Capacity Development Program in Higher Education (HCDP) is an ambitious program that aims to develop human capacities in Kurdistan Region in the field of higher education. An annual KRG budget of one hundred and twenty billion dinars (US$100 million) is allocated to the scheme. It provides a fair opportunity for thousands of distinguished young men and women to continue their education in internationally renowned universities. In the past 2 years, over 60% of the scholarship students have chosen to study in the UK.

We will visit north Iraq from October 15 to 18. For more details and registration details, please click here. 

Turkey and Azerbaijan

Turkey is an increasingly important market for UK education, but it is notoriously difficult to gain traction there. The agent fair industry seems only to feed itself and local language schools, but the lack of focus leaves UK universities and schools feeling like the right product in the wrong place.

Azerbaijan is experiencing rapid growth on the back of increasing exploitation of energy reserves. Positioned between Russia, Iran, Armenia and Turkey, it is a strategically key provider of energy for Turkey and Europe. The young population sees the UK as the most favourable destination for foreign study.

UK Education Tour is limited to 20 institutions, and will be held at excellent venues in Istanbul, Ankara and Baku. We only exhibit with UK universities and a handful of quality English schools, to ensure that enquiries are focussed and numerous for our clients. We will visit Turkey and Azerbaijan from November 17 to 24.  Click here for more information and registration details.
