We are very pleased to report that Academic Asia has been awarded the status of "Certified Agent" by the British Boarding Schools' Association. This accrediatation is only awarded to a few agents after a rigorous evaluation and assessment process.



Following the enforced closure of UK schools as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, we regret that we have been obliged to cancel our exhibitions planned for October 2020.

However, we will announce new dates for bigger and better exhibitions very soon.




Academic Asia is the largest organisation of its kind in the world specialising exclusively in the placement of Chinese students in British boarding schools and the promotion of British education in China.

We have nine main offices in China (with numerous other subsidiary and partner offices) and a headquarters office in Britain.

Academic Asia aims to provide:

  • detailed and extensive help for Chinese students seeking entry to British boarding schools
  • unique sales and marketing opportunities for British schools in China

Our offices in China are located in Guangzhou, Zhuhai, Shenzhen, Shijiazhuang, Nanjing and Shanghai.. Our UK office is located in Broadstairs, Kent. Please click here for details of our offices.

Through our network of offices in China we provide prospective students and their parents with detailed information about British education in general and British schools and colleges in particular. We then assist them with applications - during which process our Broadstairs office acts as a convenient link - and we arrange testing and interviews in China for schools as required. Subsequently we help parents through the acceptance procedures and we have specialist staff in China who provide detailed assistance with students' visa applications.

Academic Asia also organises regular educational exhibitions in China at which British schools can meet and recruit able and highly-motivated students from China. Unfortunately, the 2020 exhibitions have been cancelled as a result of the coronavirus pandemic. They will be replaced with bigger and better exhibitions - the dates for which will be announced as soon as possible.

We are also able to provide British schools with information and advice on the Chinese market and on education in China.
