According to the recent English UK, 2012 Annual statics report, Colombians studied a total of 67,521 student weeks in the UK, putting them just behind China/Hong Kong and Switzerland as source market for UK English centres.
Latin America continues to grow in importance for UK English language providers, for example Brazil is now the 3rd largest source market for UK ESL. To support this growth, English UK will hold an agent fair in Cartagena, Colombia this May to help member schools expand their agent networks in the region.
Immediately after the event in Cartagena, an English UK pavilion will feature UK Language centres within Latin America's leading international student recruitment fair Expo-Estudiante. This event will take place in Bogota, Colombia's capital, on 3 and 4 May 2014 and will provide members with access to over 6000 students and their parents who are planning to study abroad.
Supported by a UK ESL marketing campaign the pavilion provides an excellent opportunity for member centres to meet directly with students in a UK specific environment.
Whilst this opportunity makes perfect sense for those who are already attending the event in Cartagena, the event is open to all members who want to grow their student numbers from Colombia.
