  1. You will live chat with admissions representatives from accredited universities worldwide to ask all the questions on your mindOur global network of schools and universities is highly professional, friendly and collaborative. They’re also committed to providing high-quality international education and supporting your transition to university. 
  2. Our member universities understand international school curricula and actively seek global citizens to join their institutions. They're eager to meet you and discuss their courses, admissions policies, and higher education learning experiences. And they're keen to hear about the achievements, behaviours and skills that you can offer their institution.
  3. The Fair will be open for three hours during your school day and two hours in the evening when your parents or guardian might like to join you.

  5. Learn about admissions, student transition to university, your future after university, mental health and well-being, and more during five live sessions. The schedule for these sessions by higher education specialists will be available the week before the Fair so you can plan ahead.
