The PIE is a trusted, leading voice in the international education sector, connecting professionals, institutions and the businesses that support hundreds of thousands of people to study abroad every year.

Our news, analysis and intelligence is published daily by our global team of journalists who delve into the inner workings of the sector and share the information and tools you need to stay informed.

We provide independent, free and unbiased news, breaking exclusive stories, covering the hottest debates and working closely with policy makers and leading advocacy groups in all major student destinations.

“The PIE is the definitive voice in international education”

Andrew Ness, Dean of International, Humber College, Canada


In addition to our unrivalled reporting, we hold events worldwide, convening thought-leaders to spark discussions around pressing issues in the sector and connecting the people within it.

From policy talks to student roundtables to networking (plus the occasional netwalking session), our events are informative, interactive and fun.

Our annual awards ceremony has become a calendar highlight for the industry, celebrating success stories and recognising individuals and organisations who are pushing professional standards, evolving their engagement and redefining the international student experience.
