Members are companies registered in Hong Kong as education consultancies, who are recruiting students to Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom, the USA, or Canada. Full Members must have an office in Hong Kong and be in operation in Hong Kong for two or more years. Companies that have been in operation for less than two years are eligible for Associate Membership if sponsored by two Full Members.
HKIECA has drawn up a Code of Conduct to which members must adhere, and will also provide on-going training, initially in the three areas of:
- Counselling Skills
- Matching students’ needs, abilities and attitude with the most appropriate countries, institutions, and courses
A number of Sub-Committees have been established to provide members with the means to improve their services and expand their influence in the industry. HKIECA will also be a platform for education consultants in Hong Kong to come together to work for the benefit of the industry, the overseas education institutions, and the students and the community in Hong Kong.
