We expect to attract an audience of between 100 and 150 school counsellors primarily from Saudi Arabia, Oman, UAE, Qatar, Kuwait, Jordan and Egypt.
The aims of the event are to improve the counselling and support provided to students to ensure they make the best choices with regard to international education and their future career and to help promote graduate employability in the region. To do this by:
- Providing counsellors with the information/skills they need to support students effectively in choosing courses and applying to international/UK institutions

- Providing counsellors with tools to maximise the opportunities for graduate employability across the region.
The two days will comprise a number of plenary sessions and parallel workshop sessions.
