Emma Coelho

Partnership Development Manager
Anglo Educational Services
London, United Kingdom

Emma joined Anglo Educational Services in 2002, after graduating with a BA Hons in French and Spanish. Emma's passion for International Education was fuelled by the time she spent studying abroad both in France and Spain. This in turn led to her focusing her dissertation on the Study Abroad field and a comparison between the number of UK and EU students studying in Europe.

During her time at AES Emma has worked in a number of areas including short term faculty led programmes, internships and service learning, programme development and student welfare and support. Her current role as Partnership Development Manager involves her working closely with new and current partners in order to develop a range of new and exciting opportunities for those looking to study abroad.

Emma regularly presents to both student and faculty groups, and is an active member of the British Educational Travel Association, EAIE, ETOA, AASAP, UKInbound and NAFSA.
