Attending a university fair is a great opportunity for admission seekers to meet representatives from several universities in one place, and get answers to their questions about admissions, course content, study options, graduate careers and more.
The chance to meet universities face to face, by interacting with official representatives and alumni, is a key benefit of university events.
Let’s face it: university fairs can be really overwhelming for prospective students.
Here are five benefits of attending a university fair
- Interaction with university representatives
For many admission seekers the main benefit of attending a university fair is the opportunity to meet representatives of the university to answer your inquiries in person. It is a great platform to get a feel of the institution’s ethos.
- Understand the admission requirements
The fair will provide the applicants first-hand information on the admission requirements of the institution and how the applicants will navigate the entire application process.
- Information on scholarship and other sources of students’ funding
Attending a university fair will help the applicants to have exclusive information on scholarship and other sources of funding for students – indigents and outstanding.
The initial step in this is to establish a connection with the university through the fair and you will be to continue the conversation afterwards.
- Networking with fellow students
The university fair will also provide platforms for the applicants to exchange information and ideas on their university admission quest.
