Overseas missions

A growing part of our work is to take strong positive messages and information about what English UK member centres offer to agents and students where they live and work - to emerging and growing markets worldwide.

We currently have one established annual event as well as increasing numbers of one-off events, which often tie in with the English UK Fairs or sometimes respected workshops run by third parties.

Most of our one-off missions promote the variety, scope and above all, quality of courses offered by English UK members. They usually include presentations by staff on specific subjects, such as visas or quality assurance, and the opportunity for English UK member centres to meet local agents and students.

The China Roadshow is slightly different: it is aimed at the juniors market and is run in conjunction with the British Council. Find out more about the China Roadshow and other overseas missions below.

The China Roadshow 2016

Monday 14 - Friday 18 November
Beijing, Hangzhou and Guangzhou

This high profile event is the leading annual event for UK English language summer school providers looking to meet high quality Chinese agents.

Supported by the British Council China, the China Roadshow is ideal for English UK members who are serious about the Chinese market. With over 45 appointment sessions, the event has a reputation as an official channel for Chinese agents to meet new and existing school partners.

The programme usually includes a market briefing, welcome dinner, three full days of formal appointments in three different Chinese cities, optional excursions and a farewell gala. Participants receive insights into the Chinese market and trends, as well as briefings from UK Visas and Immigration.

The Roadshow is a perfect opportunity for English UK member centres to meet potential partners, including education consultancies, travel agents and local educational institutions, who are actively engaged in the UK summer school sector.

Further details and registration will be available soon. If you have any questions contact International Manager Sarah Wang at sarah@englishuk.com

If you are a Chinese education consultancy, travel agency or local educational institution interested in participating in one of the Roadshow workshops, please contact Sarah for further information.

This year's event has been scheduled to dovetail with the English UK Fair, Danang 2016.
