About us

Baltic Council for International Education (BCIE), founded in 2004, is a leading education abroad company in the Baltic States with offices in Riga, Ventspils (Latvia), Tallinn (Estonia), Vilnius (Lithuania) and Poland (Warsaw).

One of the main activities of the BCIE is counselling and sending students to study abroad, as well as assisting with the application process. Programmes offered cover all aspects of the education abroad industry including language schools worldwide, private and state secondary schools, vocational colleges and universities.

Twice per year (October & March) BCIE organizes the biggest in the Eastern Europe education abroad Fair “Days of International Education” that is held in all four Baltic cities –  Kaunas, Vilnius, Riga and Tallinn,  Poland (Warsaw, Lodz, Krakow, Wroclav) and Czech Republic (Prague). This is a well-known brand event that attracts more than 20,000 unique visitors interested in studying abroad. Once a year in December the “Exclusive Secondary Focus Fair” is organized, which is aimed at promotion of education in boarding schools and international colleges in different countries.

Hundreds of young people get our professional counselling and assistance in the application process to universities in the UK, the Netherlands, Denmark, Canada, the USA, Australia and other countries. We are the only company in the Baltics that sends junior groups to language schools abroad on a weekly basis during summer.

We send the biggest number of students from the Baltics to language courses and private & state secondary schools worldwide.
