"DynaSpeak принимала участие в выставке «Образование за рубежом»-2013 в городах Российского Дальнего Востока далеко не впервые, поездка на подобные мероприятия – наша старая, добрая традиция. В этом году мы добавили Сибирь в лице славного города Красноярска и остались очень довольны своим решением: этот регион, наряду с Дальним Востоком, стал сегментом рынка, который очень привлекателен для нас с точки зрения продвижения школы и рекрутинга студентов. Прекрасной возможностью продвигать эту программу стало участие в организованной Students International образовательной выставке: в беседе с прямым клиентом можно живо рассказать о преимуществах и достоинтвах твоей школы и предлагаемой программы – спасибо уважаемой компании Students International за такой уникальный шанс! А резко возросшее количество заявок от студентов – яркое доказательство дружбы, доброго сотрудничества DynaSpeak и Students International и неоспоримой пользы от участия в подобных образовательных выставках!"

Associate Director International Student Recruitment, Curtin University, Australia
"This was only the second time for Curtin University to participate in the Western part of the SI Roadshow and the first time for me personally. We took part in Volgograd & Rostov-on-Don. The attendance at both events was excellent – particularly at Rostov-on-Don which showed Russian students had a strong interest in taking advantages of opportunities to speak with representatives from English Colleges and Universities around the world. As the only representative from an Australian institution in Perth, Western Australia, I was particularly pleased to see Australia gaining a reputation as a popular alternative destination for a quality university education that will enhance career prospects of Russian students studying abroad. I was particularly impressed with the quality of the translators SI arranged for Curtin. As always, SI hospitality is legendary as they do their best to make their events an enjoyable & rewarding experience for both students and institution representatives. The location in Rostov-on-Don was particularly attractive for both students & exhibitors – if I could offer my suggestions for 1 improvement in future, it would be for a warmer venue in Volgograd for the odd Australian who may struggle in the conditions."
Academic Registrar, ACG, New Zealand, Chairmen NZREN
"I have had the opportunity to participate in many Road Shows arranged by Students International in Siberia, the Far East and in Moscow. I have always been impressed by the quality of the fair, the large number of informed visitors who are actively interested in learning about study options in NZ, many have lead to applications. Students International and ACG have a long history of partnership; SI is the main recruitment agent for us in Russia. The quality of the applications, the degree of support provided and the follow up provided to their students post arrival is outstanding."

"The Students International Roadshows are extremely organized in the most professional manner-from arrival to departure all aspects of travel, accommodation, meals (entertainment too) are arranged. The exhibitions in each city are excellent. Prior to the exhibitions there are a variety of different forms of advertising to ensure a high quality of clients who attend the exhibitions. The SI team from each city employs superb interpreters for each institution…their level of English and Russian is wonderful and most have experienced travel abroad. In addition to this the SI local office staff have a table to direct clients as well as the highly experienced and trained SI head office staff who can answer all questions from travel , visas and additional pathway options. Anyone wishing to expand their Russian student market can ensure that Students International will assist you to do so…so I highly recommend the SI Roadshows in the different zones in Russia and the surrounding countries"
