SHARE:   

In support of BC’s International Education sector, BCCIE is pleased to announce a coordinated BCCIE and Team BC Mission – Southeast Asia Fall 2019 Engagement taking place from October 4–21, 2019. This initiative will take place in Indonesia and Vietnam and will focus on building upon the relationships and strategic linkages that were established with education agents and networks, schools, universities, institutions, and with provincial and national agencies. EduCanada Fairs are taking place in a number of ASEAN nations during this time; however, BCCIE will be in Indonesia and Vietnam only for this fall. The working itinerary includes attendance at EduCanada fairs, agent training, partnership development visits, and other value-added activities in established and emerging markets in Surabaya, Jakarta, Danang, Hanoi, and Ho Chi Minh City.

Target Audience: K-12 schools and districts, EQA-designated post-secondary institutions and language schools in BC

Deadline: August 16, 2019 for expression of interest to participate in BC value-added events and BC branding at EduCanada fairs

Please see below for instructions and deadlines for EduCanada Fair registration.

Opportunity for growth in partnership development is also at the forefront of the BCCIE and Team BC Mission in SE Asia for Fall 2019. The recent Canada-ASEAN Scholarships for Educational Exchanges and Development (SEED) program and Canada’s membership in the University Mobility in Asia and the Pacific consortium provide opportunities for the development of reciprocal institutional collaborations between BC and ASEAN post-secondary institutions. 

Partners

BCCIE is working closely with Canadian Embassies, Trade Commissioners, BC Trade & Investment offices, government and non-governmental organizations in each country and city to offer exceptional recruitment, strategic partnership development, networking events and opportunities for all educational sectors participating in the BCCIE and Team BC SE Asia Mission.

Key objectives

  • To profile BC schools and institutions in recruitment and partnership development opportunities
  • To establish a BC Zone at some EduCanada Fairs and a CoWorking space for BC schools in Ho Chi Minh City
  • To raise awareness of BC quality education and to increase opportunities for student recruitment in SE Asian countries
  • To offer value-added engagement in different cities through attendance at EduCanada fairs, agent training, partnership development visits, networking events and opportunities for BC branding and education information.

There is no additional charge to participate in these BC initiatives, but institutions must RSVP for all events.

Working itinerary

The BC value-added events will vary for each location but may include agent training seminars, partnership development visits, sector networking and branding events, and more in established and emerging markets in Surabaya and Jakarta, Danang, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.
