What to Ask Universities at a Virtual Fair

The Global Study Abroad Fair is coming up! It'll give you a great opportunity to meet, chat and connect with live representatives from schools all over the world. 

But how do you get the most out of the fair? Here are our top tips on what to ask, as well as what you should know about the Global Study Abroad Fair.

1. Do Your Homework

Before attending the fair, you should do some research on the universities that will be at the fair. This is so that you can make the most of your time with university representatives – and get answers and information that will give you a real sense of what the school is like.

If you see a program that grabs your attention, ask the school's representatives to tell you a bit more about it. If it sounds like the right program for you, you can even start your application there and then in the platform.

Asking great, detailed questions will show a school's representatives that you've done your homework. This can help you to make that all-important first impression. 

2. Ask What Schools Look For in Prospective Students

Take the time to look up any courses that interest you before you get to the fair. That way, you can spend your time asking deeper questions about programs that interest you. You can use the fair as your chance to get insider knowledge on your dream study abroad program. 

Bonus tip: Be prepared to talk about your study abroad goals and motivations – you want to show university recruiters that you’re a serious and motivated candidate. By getting to know you, the admissions representative will be able to see whether or not you're a fit for their classroom. You can also get an idea of whether the program is a good fit for your study and career plans.

3. Ask about Life after Graduation

Most students think about life after graduation when making their choice on what to study and where to study it. At the fair, you can ask about career services, career paths that will be open to you and the school's career services.

Career services differ from school to school, so it's a good idea to see what's on offer to you once you enrol. Some school career services even put on special events and programs to welcome international students and help them to settle into life in their study abroad destination.
