In collaboration with ICEF, Gulf Conferences Ltd announced the 6th annual World Student Scholarship Education Programme (IWSSEP) held on February 16 – 17, 2023, in Dubai, UAE.
IWSSEP brought together two of the industry’s leading facilitators, Gulf Conferences Ltd, the creators of the World Student Scholarship Education Programme and ICEF, the global leader in B2B events for the educational sector.
The ICEF World Student Scholarship Education Programme (IWSSEP) brought together education providers recruiting international students with the heads and key decision makers of global scholarship programmes from across the Middle East, in the public, private and government sectors. With many countries and private organisations investing heavily in scholarships for overseas education, for example Saudi Arabia pledged to fund over 70,000 overseas scholarships by 2030, this rapidly emerging market segment offered a significant boost to the education industry as it continued its recovery from the global pandemic.
IWSSEP presented a unique opportunity for educators and providers to meet potential partners over the course of two days, all focused on this distinct industry sector.
Taking place over two days, 16 – 17 February 2023, following the 16th edition of ICEF’s annual agent networking event, ICEF Dubai (13-15 February). Both events were held at the same venue. Delegates had a rare opportunity to connect with different segments of the international education community, over one week, in the same location.
