Hello and welcome to all students!

 

 

  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.
  4. You can start your research several days before the Fair by visiting the virtual university booths, taking a look at their resources, considering which ones you wish to talk to when the Fair opens.
  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. 
  6. Your mental health and well-being is always important, particularly at this time of transition in your life when moving from secondary school to university. Our member universities can tell you about the ways their institution can support you.
  7. These fairs are designed exclusively for secondary school students who aspire to study internationally. 
  8. Student and school participation at this Fair is free.
