We are pleased to invite you to the 2020 IC3 Regional Forum in Dubai that will be hosted at a Dubai venue to be determined shortly.


The vision of the IC3 Regional Forums is to bring career and college counseling to all students, regardless of socio-economic background. Together with high schools, university representatives, and education leaders, we’re getting closer to making that a possibility. These one-day forums are critical because in many cases, students are completely reliant on their career and college counselor for information about what careers exist, what courses they need to take, and how to get into best-fit colleges and universities, locally and abroad. But what if 1) the counselor does not have access to this frequently-changing information? or 2) there is no school-based counselor?


By attending the IC3 Regional Forum, you will:

  • Gain a better understanding of what it takes to operate a career and college counseling department
  • Return to your school and perform your job more efficiently and with greater confidence
  • Expand your professional networks with local high schools, education leaders and universities


Held across 8+ countries and sponsored by GEMS Education, UniConnect and My Path To Uni initiatives – this Dubai IC3 Regional Forums offer insightful sessions that focus on professional development for attendees and drive thought leadership in the community.


We invite you to submit a session proposal to present at our IC3 Regional Forum. The theme for the 2020 IC3 Regional Forums is, Discovering Local and Global Academic Systems, and Career Possibilities. Submit your session proposal here:
