KIHE has a proven track record of successfully enrolling over 35,000 international students from around the world into academic programs annually. Since our first collaboration in 2005, we now have partnerships with over 40 universities and colleges worldwide, providing outstanding added value for a wide range of institutions across five continents.

From the outset, we strive to understand and respond fully to the specific recruitment and revenue requirements of each and every one of our partners. Our development strategy is built on our deep understanding of the wide range of the needs of international students, and our adeptness in matching these needs to suitable universities.

We are proud of our global network of educational establishments. These institutions are carefully selected to complement each other across rankings, location, academic strengths and long-term goals. Our expertise lies in helping our university partners fulfill their potential, and in supporting them on their path to a truly international future.

Our creative solutions are based on highly successful educational models, which are proven to produce excellent results not only for partner universities, with increased and sustainable revenue, but also for students, who achieve fantastic results and report outstanding levels of satisfaction.

Around the world, we have 1,400 expert staff in 31 cities – dedicated to developing and maintaining KIHE’s excellence in fulfilling the needs of both students and education institutions. This global presence, combined with our far-reaching network of almost 1000 active agents, enables our partners to achieve worldwide representation on an unrivaled scale in the sector. As a result, universities reap the benefits of increased international student volume and diversity, while seeing steady and sustainable growth at low risk.

Transnational Education: degree programs delivered locally on behalf of university partners or higher education agencies. This model allows students to gain a full undergraduate or postgraduate qualification at home or in a nearby country. We offer transnational degrees at our Higher Education Academies in Singapore and Hong Kong, in association with 12 universities across the UK, Ireland and Australia.

The above programs are run at centers in over 60 different locations around the world, further enhancing KIHE’s global reach.
