Are agents ESSENTIAL to international recruitment? Or is there another way?

By The PIE

The role of education agents across the world is once again in the spotlight as immigration problems are blamed on ‘unscrupulous agents’ and aggregators are framed for allowing entry to fraudsters and dodgy colleges. But student mobility is at an all-time high and agents are providing the vast majority of support to families who need guidance.

In this mega-webinar we will be joined by the co-authors of a new book 'Student Recruitment Agents in International Higher Education: A Multi-Stakeholder Perspective on Challenges and Best Practices' that explores the agent phenomenon and its complexities and contradictions.

We will be considering the agent paradox of friend or foe and asking if universities are addicted to working with agents on a success-based model? We will be taking in perspectives on how the UK, Canada, US and Australia differ in their approach to agents and explore how education providers and government agencies could adopt practices to better protect the interests of the students.

We welcome agents and institutions alike to join in and have your say! Register now and we look forward to answering your questions live!

Publishers Routledge have kindly offered a special discount on the book for webinar attendees as well as a giveaway of a free e-copy of the book.
