ICIEP International Education Exhibition in Moscow has over a 20-year history and was organised for the first time in 1998.

Since 2004 the exhibition has also been organised in St. Petersburg and  the event is one of the leading study abroad fairs in Russia strongly focused on student recruitment results for our exhibitors.

The main aim of the events is to provide Russian students with first-hand information on study abroad opportunities and, for foreign education institutions, to meet students and reach their student recruitment targets for the Russian market.

Traditionally, the exhibition has hosted National Pavilions for universities from Canada, USA, Germany, France, Cyprus, Hungary, Estonia,  Austria, Switzerland and many others. 

In 2018-2019 academic years the fair was attended by over 60 institutions from  Austria, Croatia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Israel, New Zealand, Russia, South Korea, Spain, Taiwan, UK, USA, etc. including the big national pavilion for China.

Visitors’ numbers: 3,500- 4,000 per season

Reasons to Attend

The fair has become the most prominent international education exhibition in Russia, providing students with access to global study opportunities, and it has also created new recruitment opportunities for foreign education institutions in Russia.

It’s also the core event of the project Marketing and Promotion of International Education in Russia.

Market Overview

The Russian government has revealed plans to encourage students to study abroad, by funding up to 10,000 students a year to attend some of the world’s leading universities. According to a recent survey, education investment has become the favourite choice of many Russian parents. Students and parents alike are looking forward to finding out about opportunities to study abroad, making this event essential both for visitors and recruiters. International experts forecast that by 2020 Russia may enter the top-5 list of leading “demand states” in the world educational market, and the amount paid for education by the Russian students will triple.

The number of Russians receiving an education abroad has grown significantly over the last few years, with English language programs being the most popular courses according to data released by AcademConsult, a local company that organises study abroad for Russian students.

Every year more and more Russian students pack their bags and go to study abroad. The most popular destination is Europe. Latest survey indicates that every third Russian student who is going to study abroad selects United Kingdom, every sixth-seventh - France or Germany. Study in Finland, Sweden and Netherlands is more and more attractive for many young Russians. High quality of Swiss education in the field of hospitality industry is well-known here. USA and Canada are the most popular destinations for studying abroad outside of Europe.

Fair Outline

Each day will attract 1,500 - 2,000 attendees, including Russian secondary school leavers, first, second and final-year university, graduates with work experience, low-level managers and mid-level managers.

Mr Zhang, Office of China Education Opportunities, CEAIE

It was truly a fruitful trip for us and delegates from 35 Chinese universities. We all were pleased to talk with Russian students who were interested in studying in China and introduce them the study opportunities from Chinese universities. Through these events in Moscow and St. Petersburg, the student mobility between Russia and China will be enhanced, which will strengthen the friendship between people from both our countries.

We just want to say those results could not be made without your efforts. We would like to extend our appreciation to your hard-working and professional capability. At the same time, thank you for all the efforts for helping us on visa issue and hosting our delegation.

 It is really nice working with you  and we are looking forward to the future collaboration.
