Canada Pavilion at IEFT Fall 2019 and Canada Reception

Each of our event we organize Education in Canada Pavilion under the IEFT Fairs with the participation of more than 25 Institutions. Interest for overseas study programs is rapidly increasing in Turkey. 

Last event we have welcomed around 30 institutions from Canada at "Education in Canada"Pavilion.
 The opening ceremony of this special section and also 36th IEFT Fall events were made on 26th of October, honored by the participation of Consul General of Canada in Istanbul Mr. Brahim Achtoutal at this ribbon cut ceremony. This specific section not only brought an extra exposure to Canada as a study destination, but also creating an opportunity to both students and parents to learn more about the Education system, quality living standards, multicultural society in Canada at each IEFT events.

In Fall 2018 event, we have also organized a very special morning reception and seminar about ; “Studying at Top Canadian Universities!” with the participation of The University of British Columbia, University of Toronto, Simon Fraser University and University of Ottawa as well as Consulate General of Canada in Istanbul representatives.
This specialized seminar was visited by top high school and university students, as well as their parents. We had mostly visitors from Koç High School, Sisli Terakki, Uskudar American, MEF Schools, Istanbul Community College and etc.  
Mainly the 4 pillar of Education in Canada, below, is very popular at our recruitment events and these institutions has a great potential of recruitment in Turkey. 

Undergraduate/ Postgraduate Programs: The exhibitors will able to meet highly motivated students from the most prestigious universities of Turkey as well as young professionals exploring their future study/career options. Our statistics show that more than 40% of our visitors are asking for undergraduate/ postgraduate programs during at IEFT events. The most popular branches for degree programs are business and management, engineering and other technical fields, medicine and other medical fields, and social sciences and humanities.

 -High School Programs: High School Education is a growing trend in Turkey. We are expecting this will increase due to Turkey’s huge young population and the competitive environment. Again like the undergraduate level, at the high school level the decision makers are the parents so our target is to bring more families who have an International mindset and budget to send their children abroad. In Fall 2018 events, more than 2,500 families visited IEFT events.   

 -Language and Summer School Programs: Turkey sends almost 50,000 students each year abroad for language and summer school programs. At the IEFT fairs around 40 % of the attendees are subjected to language studies, whether to improve their skills or as a necessity for their degree education. The main motivation of language course students is to improve their language skills, have further studies abroad or at home, have a better career, and improve themselves socially We have been also working very closely with Languages Canada to support these schools in Turkish Student Market and attract them to join our events. 


-Colleges and Certificate Programs : College Education is a growing trend in Turkey with their affordable education, high quality programs, industry connections and working opportunities. We would be happy to collaborate with you and support Canadian Colleges here in Turkish Student Market. University Transfer programs and post graduate studies are already popular in Turkey. Short courses are very affordable, offer remote study options and deliver a wide range of unique skills in a short time. This is a huge advantage of Turkish Market and creating a great demand for these potential institutions. So Canada Village at IEFT is a great platform for schools to recruit students in Turkey. 

Networking with Agents - EuroAsia Agent Workshop in ISTANBUL 

Apart from our student recruitment events, the schools also have the chance of meeting existing or potential partner agencies right after IEFT Fall Fairs. 

EuroAsia Agent Workshop connects the schools with more than 150 agents from Middle East, Central Asia, Africa, Ukraine, Russia, Mongolia, China, South Korea.  

3rd EuroAsia Agent Workshop was organized on October 2018. There were around 150 educational agents and 80 schools from 25 different countries. Additionally for the first time, we organized a special Euroasia Awards Ceremony to honor the best performance of educators by voting system.

ILAC Canada and University of Winnipeg was among the winners of the “most preferred boutique Language school” and “most preferred university in Canada”, accordingly.
