Counselor Fly-In Tours

KIC UnivAssist's Counselor Fly-In Tours provide a great opportunity to connect with high school representatives from around the world and introduce them to all that your university has to offer. Rated highly with great enthusiasm by participants, our Counselor Fly-In Tours.

COVID-19 Update: We continue to closely monitor and evaluate the global situation. Our priority is the health and safety of our university partners, staff and contacts worldwide. If you are interested in traveling with us for recruitment, please reach out to us at info@univassist.com for the most updated information.

PROVIDE EXPOSURE:

The tours' key objective is to offer introduction and strengthen awareness of your higher education system for the selected group of counselors; acquainting them to a diverse set of higher education institutions.

INCREASE UNDERSTANDING:

The counselors will learn not only about admissions procedures and requirements to help better counsel their students, but also gain a critical appreciation for the "feel" of the campuses they visit – and in turn, which students will be the best fit for which institutions.

THE "ONE-THIRD PHENOMENON":

Counselors are key influencers in deciding the institution at which a student will enroll. Based on a UnivAssist survey of 300+ international students, the counselor's recommendation factors a full one-third into the application decision (one-third student, one-third parent, one-third counselor).

Testimonials

  • Universities
  • Counselors

“Hosting the Indian Counselor Fly-In Tour, I was hugely impressed by the professionalism of all the counselors and staff who visited! It was truly a mutually beneficial tour. Counselors learned a great deal from being right here on our campus and we too learned a great deal from their input and perspectives. The relationships that were built were wonderful. Our Chancellor is now planning a trip to India and we are so excited to have many additional contacts and resources. The focus on the student was very impressive, with the goal to ensure students and families receive the very best information possible to inform their decisions of where to pursue their degree. Truly a magical day!”

University of California, Santa Cruz

“The KIC UnivAssist’s Counselor Fly-In Tour gave us the opportunity to showcase our faculty and campus in a way that isn’t possible through our visits to international schools. We also were able to personally meet, in a meaningful way, with a variety of counselors from around the world. We expect that this will have a big impact on our international recruitment efforts. While the students may change from year to year, it is the relationships with the schools that are key to successful global engagement. We are excited to take what we’ve learned and incorporate this into our recruitment strategies.”

Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania

“KIC UnivAssist puts together an extremely well-organized Counselor Fly-In Tour event. Our office traditionally hosts a counselor fly-in event which requires a lot of work and coordination, but KIC UnivAssist makes it easier for us to put together a great program as they focus on logistics of getting the counselors here. The group consisted of counselors from top schools in various regions of India and I believe all had an excellent opportunity to really get to know SLU and will be able to share this with their students.”

The Bishop’s School (Jordan)

More than 90% of our students look to go to the U.S. for college, so the Counselor Tour to the U.S. is extremely beneficial because it gives us that experiential learning, which we can then use to guide our students and help them through picking the right university. My experience on this tour has been amazing – I’ve gotten so much valuable information and the universities have been gracious and so kind. I am just in awe of the nice treatment and wonderful breath of information! I have been a counselor for over 20 years; you think you know it all, but you never really do.

The American School of Vietnam (Vietnam)

The UnivAssist Counselor Tour to the U.S. allowed me to see a variety of campuses throughout the U.S. and I can now visualize which students I have that would be a good fit for these institutions. It was an opportunity I know I would never have been given if it wasn’t for KIC UnivAssist.
