Join the largest event promoting UK international education and ELT

No other event represents the UK ELT industry as well as StudyWorld. And it has never been more important that we tell our positive story to the world.

Learning English in the UK is a life-changing experience for millions of students every year. And they not only bring wealth and jobs with them, but cultural exchange and friends for life.

"That is the magic of international education" in the words of Yinbo Yu, former international officer of the National Union of Students, who spoke at our StudyWorld 2019 welcome reception.

"Bringing people together, with different backgrounds and stories, and from every corner of the world. And if there was ever a time where we need to shout about the positivity of international education, about the economic, social and cultural benefits student mobility brings – the time is now," he said.

StudyWorld is the UK's largest event focused on promoting UK international education to agents, partners and influencers from around the world.

In 2019 we hosted over 300 study abroad agents from 61 different markets. With the support of UKTI, we also hosted a delegation of high-end Chinese buyers interested in investment in and partnership with UK education providers. We are planning to increase this activity in 2020.

"I love it: I love the possibilities of all of it... the dynamism. It's a very strong environment andmore value for money if you want to break it down into educational tour operator minutes per pound."​​​
- Ward Lincoln, OISE

StudyWorld offers opportunities to meet unique contacts, including diplomatic staff from London embassies were and a high-level Chinese delegation of senior staff from ten organisations selected by the Department for International Trade.
