ASIC International Education Conferences: Innovate. Enhance. Network.

Our mission is to improve the quality of international education delivery. Our ethos is grounded in the promotion and facilitation of international cooperation and friendship. Our purpose in delivering ASIC events is to bring educators, leaders, and governments from around the world together to share their experiences – to gain new and alternative perspectives, learn from one another, and be inspired to initiate change where it is needed.

What are ASIC International Education Conferences?

Since ASIC’s inception in 2007, we have conducted and participated in seminars, workshops, and conferences in the UK and overseas. We aim to empower international cooperation in the education community, and our conferences provide delegates with the opportunity to connect with other leaders and educators. Each year they also serve as a backdrop to facilitating the forging of formal partnership and collaboration through MoUs.

Background to ASIC Conferences:

During our 10th anniversary year, we held our first international conference in Kuala Lumpur, attended by 160 delegates from over 40 countries. Delegates included those from our accredited institutions, those interested in gaining accreditation, and sector experts.

Following the outstanding success of this and subsequent conferences, and in response to increased demand, we now run a series of more intimate regional conferences worldwide in addition to our annual international conference.

Regional Conferences:

Our smaller, region focused events 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.

How do I attend ASIC Events?

Information about upcoming conferences is updated at the top of this page, on our ASIC Eventbrite Portal, and circulated via our newsletter and social media.

Quality Enhancement

There’s more to running an educational institution than gaining accreditation. It’s important to maintain effective operational practices in the long term to continue to provide students with valuable educational experiences. ASIC can help you implement new management strategies to help your institution continue to operate successfully and achieve further growth.

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.
