While the world is a place filled different people, perspectives, goals and experiences no-one can truly live or make decisions until they have seen it all, further education opens up great opportunities, a large field of study and exceptional experiences if you find the perfect university and course.
There are basically two types of expos, one that is offered by a selection of universities and then fairs or expos offered by a specific university at their premises. Both have benefits, the combined expos allow students to take a look at the best options offered by several universities and the expos offered by a specific university allow the student to experience the campus environment and might include a more personal approach.
The main benefit of attending expos is to decide which course is perfect, followed by the finding the best university for the course, which also include decision factors like distance from home, affordability, facilities and several other factors.
Expos allow access to admission representatives, former students, great information regarding finding the right fit for each individual, financial assistance, career consultants, student advisors and other activities like sports. The student advisors and career consultants have all the information required for entrance exams or qualifications, subjects, annual tuition and would be able to fill attendance in regarding student life.
While expos offer an opportunity for interested individuals to explore the opportunities of further study, talks offered are directed at the new student, parents and provide valuable information that need to be considered before making that final decision about, where the student will fit in best, financial, registration requirements and deadlines.
With expos where several universities are competing for new registrations, each of them will contribute to broaden choice of university best suited, study options, outdoor sport activities and finally campus life. Many of the expos include career fairs and provide the best information of what is required to enter the specific career field, the fairs include recruitment officers from organizations in that specific field, to generate interest and increase their profile on campus.
Many students might wonder why the career fair should be attended when one can basically find all the information required online. For starters the expos offer great efficiency as more than one university are at the location at the same time. Consulting a student advisor face to face give the student an opportunity to discuss the best possible subjects and can get great advise on how to combine subjects to reach their final goal. Online provide general information for all students and are less specific towards individual requirements and should a new applicant apply online, they would still be required to attend an interview.
Benefits of university expos include assistance from career centres, useful platforms to find out more about courses offered, best subject combinations, presentations by lecturers and meeting student advisors, other potential students and best of all if attended with parents, they will feel part of your new future and can get all the information regarding your future leading to a university degree. Best of all you get to meet university admission officers, attend presentations and can apply for scholarships exclusive to attendees.
