ASIC International Education Conferences:
Innovate | Enhance | Network
Post-pandemic, we will witness an inevitable and understandable rush to return to [a pre-pandemic] normal. We as a sector must also ensure that we preserve and carry forward the lessons learnt from the challenges, and progress, of the past year. We held Education Beyond 2021 (our 5th conference – and 1st e-conference) in March to explore new horizons for international education. You can read more about the conference on the event page here.
ASIC Events Sponsorship Opportunities
There are many benefits to sponsoring an ASIC virtual event with opportunities to have your institution’s/organisatation’s logo displayed across conference marketing material, our website, the events page and platform, and all our social channels. During the event itself, we will mention sponsors regularly throughout, and there are also packages available which include the option to secure a speaking slot.
What are ASIC International Conferences?
Since ASIC’s inception in 2007, we have conducted and participated in seminars, workshops, and conferences both in the UK and overseas.
During our 10th anniversary year, we held our first international conference in Kuala Lumpur, which was attended by 160 delegates from over 40 countries. Delegates included those from our accredited institutions, those interested in gaining accreditation, and sector experts. The two-day conference celebrated a decade of promoting excellence in international education.
Here at ASIC, we empower international cooperation in the education community and the conference also provided the opportunity for delegates to connect and network, as well as build formal partnerships.
Following the outstanding success of this and subsequent conferences, and in response increased demand, we now run a series of more intimate regional conferences worldwide in addition to our annual international conference.
These conferences will enable our institutions, and those seeking ASIC accreditation, to meet with industry experts, ministry of education dignitaries, and various leaders and representatives from local education authorities, intergovernmental, non-governmental, and other education agencies, along with the chance to submit papers for presentation, develop partnerships, and experience new countries, cultures and business opportunities.
Information about our conferences including dates, agendas, sponsorship opportunities, etc. will be published shortly here on our website and circulated via our newsletter and social media.

There’s more to running an educational institution than just gaining the accreditation. It’s important to maintain good operation practices in the long term so that you can keep providing students with a valuable and effective educational experience. ASIC can help you to implement various management strategies so you can continue to operate a successful institution.
Some of our areas of expertise:
- Reviewing operations to determine their effectiveness and identifying areas of strength and weakness.
- Service planning, business planning, strategic planning.
- Plans for improvement and development of the institution.
- Developing the curriculum to ensure continued relevance to today’s students.
- Developing and implementing new administrative procedures.
- Developing effective, ethical and honest marketing strategies.
- Training programs for staff to help them develop their skills.
Events and Training
We believe it is important for our accredited institutions to be able to continue to engage with us, so we aim to give them plenty of opportunities to do so. This is why we provide outstanding Networking and Training Events. To do this, we join up with relevant organisations whose knowledge will help you to stay up to date with the latest legislation and best practices. This is essential if you want to stay ahead of the competition in the Education Market.
