About Us

Maxer Education Institute was established in 2012. Since then, we have developed many partnerships among education institutions across the world, to increase mutual understanding and collaboration at all levels. Our services ranged from facilitating university’s joint degree cooperation, Study Abroad Programme, Cambridge Oxford London Summer/Winter Schools, Academics and Professional Training and networking events (International Education Summit, Overseas academics or talent recruitment, Visiting Fellowships & Teaching, Building bridges between UK & Asia, Non-educational cooperation) for students and professionals.

Thus far, over 5000 students from more than 100 universities have participated in more than 200 Maxer residential programmes that have been carefully designed and organised by us to meet and exceed demands and expectations of our partner universities; 2 groups of teachers from Asian universities have participated in our Academics and Professional Training Programme co-organised with Clare Hall, University of Cambridge and over 100 representatives from the UK and Asia have attended our Annual International Education Summit. We believe it is through collaborations and partnerships that we can broaden horizons of talents from both countries.

Our Mission

It is our mission to expand partnerships among education institutions to increase cooperation and collaboration at all level. Collaborations between British HEI's and other counties HEI's can result in an increased progression of ideas and innovations. It is through collaborations and partnerships that we can broaden horizons of talents from all regions.

We firmly believe "Insight Inspires Innovation". Maxer helps arrange exchange visits for all regions' students to broaden their horizons, and to experience the cultural differences. These experiences will in turn stimulate their interest to learn each other's language and culture, to feel the diversified histories of civilizations in the world, which will better help them spread their wings in the future and adapt to the sharp competitive environment filled with international talents.

Collaboration with CCISTC

Maxer Education Institute is the official strategic partner of CCISTC.

CCISTC (Cambridge Centre for the Integration of Science, Technology and Culture) work on interdisciplinary research projects and organise relevant conferences, seminars and programmes. In light of the trend of globalisation, CCISTC aims to promote discussions and collaborations among academics, students, and our international partners (such as policy makers, higher education institutions, societies, association, etc.) across the world. Prof. Nicola Clayton, Fellow of Royal Society and Professor of Comparative Cognition in the Department of Psychology at the University of Cambridge, is the Founding Director of CCISTC, in consultation with the Co-Directors Prof. Clive Wilkins and Dr. Ruigang Michael Zhou.


Maxer benefits from a vast pool of respected Education Directors, Senior Advisors and Academic Leads who guide us throughout the journey in our mission. Our well-respected independent senior advisors are a testament to the transparency and ethical values that shape our behaviour and business.
