Our Story

HIE (Haddington International Education) was founded when Noreen Lucey identified an opportunity to enhance university collaboration and student recruitment efforts by creating a local presence on behalf of universities in various regions globally.

From working in the International Offices of colleges and universities, Noreen saw the need to provide support to universities that wanted to expand their network globally but did not have the time or resources to do so. Her time spent living overseas in Europe, Australia, China and Central America, reinforced the value of working on the ground to effectively manage a local network.

Over the years, Noreen has been joined by like-minded people who understand the importance of international education in the region they live in, and HIE is now made up of consultants based in Europe, Middle East, and Asia.

As a result, HIE has been able to develop and manage strong partnerships on behalf of universities and agencies across much of the globe and continues to evolve with ever-changing markets and student needs.

Our goal is to improve the internationalization of campuses globally and the overall study experience of students overseas. We aim to approach international education holistically by working with students, academia, industry and social enterprises in the countries we are present in.
