University Counsellors

Keep in touch with CIS!


The Council of International Schools (CIS) is a membership community commited to high quality international education.

Our global community includes more than 1370 schools and universities representing 122 countries.

University guidance counsellors from schools around the world are invited to attend our regional Institutes on International Admission and Guidance as well as our Global Forum. Whether you already have years of experience in international admissions and recruitment or you are new to the field, you can learn from peers and make new connections at our numerous events throughout the year. We have robust participation of both universities and schools, which maximizes opportunity for networking from both sides of the desk.


The CIS Global Forum on International Admission & Guidance is a conference of more than 900 professionals from around the world who gather annually to develop professional connections and discuss crucial industry topics. Take this opportunity to expand your perspective of student recruitment!


Experience the dynamic professional development and networking opportunities standard to all CIS events with a regional focus! We collaborate with regional partners in order to provide you with the highest-quality expertise and network. Our regional conferences are characterized by a more intimate atmosphere than the Global Forum and also includes a student recruitment fair.
