What our Partners say about us…
Mission: to be the leading service provider in international education
he EIC Group is a private organization focused on the Chinese education market with significant expertise in student recruitment. EIC has grown into the largest and leading company nationally with a network of 20 branch offices across China in all leading regional markets. The EIC Group is now the industry leader, with a significant market share, a robust fully-owned national office network and the best attended events and exhibitions of any agency in China. In recognition of our national industry leading position and seeking a stronger national
and global profile, we moved our national headquarters to Beijing in 2010. With 25 years of experience in student recruitment and a national office network reaching deep into each regional market, the EIC Group has the resources to bring our partners brands directly to the hundreds of thousands of students who attend our events, our offices or who encounter our extensive online presence. Beyond student recruitment, the EIC Group aims to be a full international education solutions provider. In July 2003, we launched
our Training Center network delivering English language and exam preparation training for Chinese students looking to study abroad. The successful outcomes of our students who are better prepared for the rigors and challenges of academic study abroad are obvious. In 2010, 25,000 students undertook English language and exam preparation training with EIC Training. We have also expanded into other foreign language and academic preparation training with courses in French, German, Korean and Japanese.
Our partnering philosophy
Jody Lehr Graduate and International Outreach
Rochester Institute of Technology
Exceptionally well organized and obviously well publicized, given then strong participant numbers and focused interest. The interpreters have strong ESOL skills and quickly come up to speed on the myriad details of the University. I will definitely continue to participate in as many EIC location education fairs as possible in the future and look forward to receiving information on upcoming events.
EIC are one of the most professional education agents that we have had the pleasure to work with. Our University has worked with EIC for a number of years and has found them to provide honest, accurate and professional advice to the students they counsel. Their staff are very knowledgeable about our courses and entry requirements and send us high quality students. EIC staff are also very efficient in handling paperwork and following our procedures. I thoroughly recommend EIC and UEA is fully committed to supporting them for the forseeable future.

With a very high degree of autonomy, our Partners will be able to deliver key messages across a range of channels to Chinese students and support and service those students.
We’ve been in the recruitment business for more than a decade and have worked with many agencies, both US-based and foreign. We have found EIC to be second to none. They are professional, student-centered, friendly, organized, and able to draw quality students to their fairs. If you’re looking for a recruitment fair option in China, look no farther than EIC.

Our Events Our events are the best in the industry and partners book early to avoid disappointment as they are frequently booked out up to 4 months in advance. The EIC Group invests heavily in attracting interested students to our three rounds of Education Exhibitions usually held in March, July and October. Our events give our partner institutions the opportunity and platform to communicate directly with students, providing advice,
counseling, course and admissions requirement information. Students and partners alike value and enjoy the experience and the opportunity to discuss individual student’s interests and study plans. Since 2005, we have held 10 cycles of Education Exhibitions in total attracting over 300,000 interested students. 2010 was our best year ever with almost 100,000 students attending our national Education exhibitions and events.
Media and online marketing services. In country representation.
or EIC, partnership is much more than agency representation. Our Partners have a range of objectives for the PR China market well beyond agency representation. In 2011, the EIC Group launched a new, independent business unit to deliver a suite of services to our Partners. Though in country representation, with dedicated staff, partners can provide support to applicants, channels, alumni, staff travelling in country and Chinese higher education institutions efficiently and directly. Our partners will be more directly in control of in country branding in the complex Chinese marketplace and better able to scrutinize and supervise all chan-
nels. Chinese language marketing materials are powerful tools to directly communicate with parents and students. With international freight now costing considerably more than print and customs tariffs and duties holding up incoming materials, now is the best time to consider localizing the production of print and marketing materials. EIC Partner Services offers design, localization, translation, print, freight and logistics services in sa total, integrated service. The Chinese media and online marketing environments are critical tools for reaching savvy, digital youth markets. EIC Partner Services can assist your institution with cre-
ating and maintaining Blogs, Wiki pages, Chinese language Websites that will reinforce your brand image in China. Many partner institutions are no longer able to respond to the vast number of incoming enquiries to their Websites, many of which require sustained interactions before converting (if at all). All institutions are continually disappointed by non-arrivals and nonconversions. EIC Partner Services offers enquiry management and conversion support services specifically designed to improve the outcomes from Chinese student enquiries and applications.
