StudyWorld London showcases everything the UK offers, from universities, ELT centres and colleges to publishers, examining boards, and student accommodation providers, to buyers from around the world. At StudyWorld partnerships are built, training is commissioned, deals are negotiated, and cross-sector partnerships are born.


Everyone – from the smallest agencies to the largest educational tour operator – who is serious about doing business with educator providers the UK, the event will focus exclusively on promoting UK education exporters to buyers from around the world. Participants can hold traditional agent/educator meetings with up to 47 appointment slots or book flexible one-day or full event passes. Everyone is invited to social networking opportunities, inspirational speakers, and professional seminars.


This year Gulf Conferences partnered with EnglishUK and for the first time universities, government ministries and educational councils are among the official Gulf delegates making appointments at StudyWorld. Most of the 16 attendees from four nations represent leading universities, but health and education ministries and councils are also at the event. They were all based in the event’s first-ever Gulf Lounge, organised in association with Gulf Conferences Ltd and sponsored by King Abdulaziz University.


“We’re really excited about the Gulf Lounge and the opportunities it provides for our educators and officials from the region to get together both formally and informally to discuss needs and possibilities,”


said Jodie Gray, Head of Market Development for English UK.

She added:


“Meetings are booking up fast, so if you’ve keen to move into this market, we recommend you act quickly.”


The Gulf delegates have a wide variety of objectives, including continuing training for nurses, CPD for university lecturers and other staff, the establishment of in-country higher-level academic programmes, academic collaborations, and the development of educational policies and programmes. Organisations represented include Qatar University, Taibah University, Princess Nourah University, The University of Hafr Al-Batin, Imam Mohammed Ibn Saud Islamic University, Shaqra University, as well as the Saudi Arabia Ministry of Education, the Oman Ministry of Health and the Abu Dhabi Educational Council.
