16 Set up your presentation: new thing! - Secretly tested during last presentations in Brazil - Goldsmiths, University of the Arts, York, Kings College Social Media promotion - free pilot We register ourselves on Orkut (Brazils Facebook) Map out social communities related to the event in two dimensions - Generic groups - Specific interest Contact group moderators requesting permission to send forum message Send event invitation to bulletin board (more realistic at this point) We also have an EdUK Brasil community at Orkut...but that is going slower Facebook and Twitter activity

19 Country Partners Portfolio photo text did you know? areas contact quote logo

20 Country Partners Satisfaction Survey 2009 How was the quality of the EUKP services during individual visits to Brazil ? How was the customer care youve received from the BC in the set up and during the visit ?

21 Satisfaction Survey 2009 Being a country partner

22 Brazil Differentials and Advantages BC Team – Customer Care "Probably the best BC we've worked with" (University of Warwick) The BC operation is currently our best asset (London Metropolitan University) "Team is excellent and professional in both cities" (University of Westminster) BC Brazil is certainly one of the most helpful offices I work with (University of Glamorgan) Some of the most responsive and proactive supports from all BCs (Goldsmiths) Excellent and helpful as ever. Any issues dealt with immediately. (Queen Mary) Very strong introduction. Much better than other Partners meetings (City University) London Week was fantastic, well worth the time and money invested (Kings College) (Relatively) Happy partners

23 Brazil Differentials and Advantages How do you rate the Brazilian market compared to other countries? How do you rate the work BC Brazil does and your general feelings about being a part of Brazil Partnership ?

24 Student Markets

25 Independent Schools - Very small niche - No stats available (just LAC) Further Education - Also just a niche - There is no FE in Brazil - Career based is not valued - Qualification validation - It doesnt make sense for our students English - Colleges: English and Prep

26 FE students - evolution What exactly are these students in FE institutions ? Are they really FE students ? Difficult to explain without breakdown

27 English students - evolution 17,000 students Top 5 sending countries

28 Higher Education - evolution 1,580 students steady growth restructuring the operation * 32% growth in 4 years * Last 3 growths: largest ever


30 $$$$$$$$$ Brazilian institutions are great English Language can be a killer Lack of links between universities UK Fees Regime X Brazilian Scholarships Market Share / Cultural Influence UK universities: Brazil not a priority Some level of cannibalism (English) Undergraduate: it doesnt make much sense... Why dont we have more HE students ?

31 * updated with help from BCs central market intelligence unit

32 Competitors Strengths: USA: Cultural influence and more investment from universities Portugal: Language and Work/Government Agreements Germany & France: Tuition (or lack of), Links to local universities Spain: Some language, but declining influence Italy: Country Brazilians admire the most, in general terms Canada & Australia: Lots of investment, growth so far modest in HE Latin America: Except Cuba, all neighbours are declining HE Market Share in Brazil - Analysis Share variation in the last 3 years: USA: - 3%Portugal: 0% Germany: 0%France: +1% UK: +1% Spain and Italy: 0%

33 Gender: Male: 47% Female: 53% Higher Education HESA 08/09 Age and Level

34 Which areas do they study ? Student Profile – HESA 08/09

35 HESA 08/09 Brazil: Self-funded: 65% BR Govnmnt: 3% Mexico: Self-funded: 43% MX Govnmt: 20%

36 Research in Brazil Brazils share of world output is growing increasingly rapidly Volume of publications compared to 1981=100 Source: Global Research Report Brazil Evidence and Thompson Reuters 1981: 2,000 papers2009: 30,000 papers (2,12% of worlds production) Passes Russia and Holland to become 13th globally (NSI); UK is 5th This growth pushes Latin America and exceeds by far the G7

37 How can we increase the number of government-funded students? FAPESP and Research Councils UK - 2009 alone: £480 million spent with Brazilian students abroad - There is a LOT of money in FAPESP, and they are more open than Brasilia - Oct 2009: groundbreaking agreement set up between FAPESP and the UK - Brazilian and UK researchers to apply for funding through a single application - Peer review process - All fields of Science - Institutions such as Kings College are already doing separate deals for exchange of researchers AND PG students

38 - new and

39 Website – Brazil-only content we hopefully will add - Scholarship Specials: For Brazilians only - Experience UK Now: Local content (videos/text) - Equivalence charts and validations: Connecting the 2 systems - Visa and Work information: Local information - Thematic Areas Tips: Why cant you study Law at UG? Why is the MBA different? - British Council tips: Choosing an institution, rankings etc

46 Agents & ELT Education Promotion in Brazil 2009

47 Brazil Agents – much ahead on the game globally Training and Certification not as important Strategic partnership with BELTA (and ExpoBelta) Belta: best agents association in the world, many prizes Support of Agents Workshop in English UKs annual event Open Days with British Consulate (Jan/2010) Student Express Scheme Agents & ELT Main problem and challenge: develop HE niche English sells very easy Fees and Commissions HE: Difficult Product to sell versus Larger amounts 72% of agents sales are English 17% Work & Travel 1% Higher Education

48 Brazilian institutions Difficulties Brazilian Public Universities (free) Spotted elitism from both sides Different business model for students mobility no fees, just exchange lack of programs in English to receive British lack of interest by British students to come to Brazil Competition advancing fast France, Germany, Italy, Portugal, Spain......and even the US
