Maxer Education Group Limited (Maxer) (trading name: Maxer Education Institute) was established in 2015. Since then, we have developed many partnerships between educational institutions between Asia and the UK to increase mutual understanding and collaboration at all levels. Our services ranged from facilitating university’s joint degree cooperation, Study Abroad Programme, Cambridge Oxford 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, approximately 4000 students from more than 100 universities in Asia have participated in more than 200 residential programmes in the UK 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. Also, we are expecting our first round of students to come to the UK for the Study Abroad Programme in January 2020. We believe it is through collaborations and partnerships that we can broaden horizons of talents from both countries.
It is our mission to expand partnerships between education institutions of two regions to increase cooperation and collaboration at all level. Increased cooperation will secure a sustainable relationship between the UK and Asia. Collaborations between Asian and British 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 both regions.
We firmly believe "Insight Inspires Innovation". Maxer helps arrange exchange visits for Asian and British students to broaden their horizons, and to experience the East-West 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.
