ou’ll learn, evolve, and collaborate with peers from universities and international schools worldwide and, while we’ll miss seeing you in person, we look forward to our continuing collaboration online.

Are you new to CIS Forums? Our Forum is where school guidance counsellors and university admissions converge and unite with a shared goal of supporting students making their transition from school to university. Members will share expertise and knowledge on the latest admission processes, global trends in international student recruitment and embrace the opportunity to promote their institutions.

Last year’s CIS Forum attracted 468 university admission representatives and 404 school counsellors from 80 countries. It is our pleasure to invite this community to our 2020 virtual event and we look forward to welcoming many others who cannot always attend our Forums in person.

You’ll enjoy a balance of professional development, profile-raising for your institution, and resources to support your students at this important time in their lives.

You can expect to:

  • Identify and share effective practices and expertise in supporting students through the application process

  • Learn about a range of university admission systems around the world. We’re integrating regional content for the continuation of discussions that usually take place at our regional Institutes on International Admission & Guidance in Asia or Latin America (not taking place in 2020). Forum content will be presented in a variety of time zones and will be recorded for on-demand access.
  • Master skills for greater success in your daily work
