Partnerships and Sponsorships

COBIS run a very successful student engagement programme, with more than 20,000 students participating in the 2018/19 academic year, from across the 270+ COBIS Member schools in 80 countries.

COBIS are inviting Supporting Members and other organisations to submit proposals for student programmes that bring expertise and new opportunities to COBIS schools through meaningful partnerships. These programmes will support the development of COBIS students within and beyond the classroom.

COBIS currently deliver remote competitions, online activities, residential programmes and more. Going forward, we strive to develop a diverse, balanced portfolio of student programmes to cater for the wide range of ages within COBIS schools and welcome all proposals that align to this.
