If you are a student at the threshold of high school, wondering which path to pursue for higher education, look no further than the Global Education Fair. To be held at Movenpick Hotel in Oudh Metha, the fair help students who are aiming to study abroad, in mapping out their careers.
The fair is conducted by IQ Education Consultants, which is a multi-faceted initiative with a dynamic, student focused web portal that enhances learning environments and aims to impart information about international College and University campuses. “We help students select their subject combinations after grade 10, enabling them to move into courses of their choice and ability,” explains Shanthi Ramachandran, Managing Director of IQ.
Some of the reputed universities participating in this edition of the fair include University of York, City University ( London), University of Kent, University of Leeds, Northumbria University, Loughborough University, EU Business School, University of Southampton, Aston University, Demontfort University, Queens University Belfast, University of Bradford and more.
Two fairs are organized yearly, one in April and the other in November. April event is mostly for students who have already applied to schools abroad and are waiting for offers. The fair helps them understand if they meet conditions and to discuss scholarships and bursaries. The November event helps the fresh prospective students for the following year, to meet universities and then decide where they are headed.
“Every year we invite universities from around the world to meet students in the UAE to maximize the opportunities available to them. This helps them make unbiased decisions about their higher education. Meeting experts from international institutions, in their home country, and being able to discuss the way forward, helps them a great deal. We also organize school visits for these universities in the UAE where students and parents get to meet them on the school campuses,” concludes Shanthi
