What can we offer?

ICON works with schools to take care of marketing and recruitment for overseas students. In the UK we offer guardianship and hosting services, while we are well established in the education sector in countries where which we target for recruitment.

In most countries we work predominantly with sub-agents, although we also have partner schools overseas, and we receive a number of direct enquires each academic year. We also attend worldwide educational events throughout the year.

Student Recruitment

  • At ICON, we work hard to ensure that the right students are selected. We look for students who will be able to stand up to the challenge of studying abroad and will integrate into a new school and its local community.
  • We examine school reports and academic achievements for students and screen potential candidates with a telephone interview
  • Upon successful completion of this process we submit the student’s profile to the school
  • We arrange for entry tests to be taken and for personal statements to be completed and sent
  • We make arrangements for registration forms to be completed and fees to be paid
  • We arrange telephone or Skype interviews with heads of departments or senior teachers to give staff the chance to get to know the student
  • For students who are accepted, we coordinate all relevant documents, including offer letters, acceptance letters, visa applications, medical forms, and travel arrangements
  • We also recruit suitable host families for students who will attend day schools
