Make the World Your Classroom

So you've heard the stats about how studying abroad makes you more employable. You've listened to stories of people who have loved their study abroad trips. You've been looking on pinterest for travel inspiration. You know you want to study abroad.

So what's next?

It can be highly competitive to get into top universities, so it's important to do what you can to distinguish yourself from other applicants. Attending a study abroad virtual fair is one way that you can do this. Here's what you'll gain by coming along to the Study and Go Abroad Virtual Fair:

Narrow down your options

The number of universities and programs to choose from can seem overwhelming. Chatting online to representatives from different universities will give you a clearer idea of the best option for you.

Some aspects of a university are difficult to discern from a website or prospectus; for example, the teaching style, the city's nightlife, and which sports are most competitive. Speaking to people with first hand experience of the universities you are considering will help you discern whether a particular school or program will be a good fit for you.

Make connections

The university representatives at the virtual fair will be looking to connect with prospective students, who they will stay in contact with after the fairs. Lots of questions pop up over the course of an application, like how to convert your GPA to your prospective university's grading system, and whether it's a good idea to live on campus.

Having an 'insider' who you can answer these questions is a huge advantage. This kind of connection will be vital for both your decision making and application process, and will likely help you break down the entry requirements and give you tips on how to make a strong application.

Learn about finances

Some people forego the opportunity to study abroad based on the idea that it's too expensive. However, there are actually a ton of options for making study abroad more affordable, and sometimes less expensive than studying locally.

For example, university is free in some countries, such as Germany, or heavily subsidised in others (for example, France), even for international students! Even if you do wish to study at one of the more expensive schools, many of them offer academic or sports scholarships and some governments offer study scholarships to study in their country. At the fairs, you can speak to experts in finding scholarships for study abroad programs, and learn about the fees and payment plans of different universities.
