Why take part in the International Schools Forum Brazil?
Students are going abroad at an ever younger age. They do so in order to study a language, gain international and cultural experience and to study a particular subject. In Brazil preparations for future studies start at high school. Students and their parents often turn to high school counselors for help in the search for the university or college that best fits their needs.
This makes these counselors an invaluable asset for international institutions who are keen to understand market demand and tap into an influential audience early in the student journey.
At the International Schools Forum you will be given an exclusive opportunity to meet over 50 counsellors and principals from renowned international and private high schools from all over Brazil.
Reinforce your brand and your unique educational offering with a focused opportunity to widen your network with influential principals and school counsellors who actively prepare and advise their students on the next stages of their academic career.
Combine the International Schools Forum with the Education Fair in Brazil to bolster your international student recruitment activities. This event takes place from 12 to 23 March and takes you to Brazil’s main student cities: Sao Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia, Curitiba, Belo Horizonte and Salvador.
Brazil’s student recruitment market
* The demand for quality university education in Brazil is far greater that the supply. The best chances of furthering education are more likely to be found abroad.
* Brazil is known for its quality secondary and tertiary education. 6,3% of GDP is spent on education. This is well above the OECD average.
* Brazilian students are highly mobile. Studying abroad and traveling are part of the culture. Many Brazilians have a second (mostly European) passport.
* The Brazilian government has set up a formidable scholarship program (PEC-G) that has already enabled over 10,000 students to study abroad (degree seeking and exchange)
The International Schools Forum is a unique opportunity to establish and strengthen your recruitment network in Brazil.
