International Education News

It’s conference season! In addition to all NAFSA Regional conferences but one, we will also be attending the ICEF Berlin, ICEF Miami, ISEP, Alliance and CSIET conferences - a total of 13 events over the next two months. This year, we are hosting sessions on three topics - one on using scholarships and financial aid to help recruit students, one on the impact of the ACA on international students, and one on using Google Hangouts to reach international students. This last session has a twist - although it will be a live session presented at eight NAFSA Regional Conferences, each of those sessions will also be a live on-air Hangout, so you can join the session from anywhere in the world!

Below is our full session schedule. We hope to see you at one of these events or in-person sessions - but if not, please consider joining one of the live on-air Google Hangouts.

NAFSA Regional Conference Presentations

How Financial Aid is Shaping International Student Populations and Using Scholarships in Recruitment

Financial aid is a key issue facing international students who want to study overseas. This year, we will host a session at several NAFSA regional conferences to explore how financial aid is shaping our international student population and how you can use your scholarships as a recruiting tool.

The Impact of the ACA on International Students and Their Insurance Options

This fall we are also presenting at several NAFSA Regionals on the Affordable Care Act and how this impacts international students and scholars. At region VII we will be presenting on the topic of international student health and safety. If you are attending any of these regional conferences we hope you have time to attend.

Google+ and Hangouts: The Latest Technology in Communicating with International Students

This year, the focus for our digital marketing presentations for the NAFSA regionals will be on ‘Google+ and Hangouts: The Latest Technology in International Student Recruiting’.

In this session, you will be part of a live Google Hangout where you can attend in person or virtually using a live Google On Air Hangout. We will demonstrate the growing popularity of Google+ and the importance of a Google+ presence. We’ll show you how to use a Hangout to communicate with international students from inquiry to enrollment and beyond.

If you cannot attend the session, you can join live via Google+! The schedule is below and you can click here to RSVP and join.
