Global Engagement hosts key international recruitment conference

Agent conferenceThe Department of Global Engagement is hosting an International Agent Conference from 18-20 June 2018.

Every year, many international students join the University through the support of a recruitment agent. Recruitment agents help students to select their universities and guide them through the application and visa process. Agent relationships are integral to our success when recruiting overseas students.

We have invited a group of key agents with whom we work to the University of Sheffield, in order to showcase our campus, facilities, students and staff. These agents are ‘Senior Counsellors’ who directly advise and influence prospective students.

This is a great opportunity for our agents to see first-hand what it's like to study at our University so that they feel empowered to counsel prospective students about everything that we have to offer.

We previously held an online conference in 2016 and our last face-to-face conference was in 2014.
