Exploring Educational Opportunities: The Nordic University Tour Fair

University+Booths

University Booths

Recently, The Nordic University Tour Fair was held where representatives from over 60 universities from all around the world gathered in the Atrium, at Norra Latin. 

The event was held after school which allowed the students an invaluable chance to explore their options firsthand and ask as many questions as needed. Students from all grades were encouraged to attend, and SIS parents also could attend. I really enjoyed walking around the different booths and talking to the representatives about the different universities, specifically about the wide range of courses each school has to offer and what career it might lead to. This experience helped me visualize how life in university might look like and look forward to what awaits me in the future.

In addition to the fair, specialized talks on regions and academic programs were organized. Students had the opportunity to attend a “Study in the UK Talk” where representatives from Durham, Essex, and Sussex University talked about the different types of entry requirements and the UK application process. I found that really interesting since I didn’t know much about the application process beforehand. There was also a “Study in Scotland Talk,” and the Norwegian School of Economics Talk. I found that they really helped me narrow down where I would like to study and what I need to accomplish before applying to a university.

Overall, these talks help provide students with a deeper insight into certain topics such as factors to consider when choosing a course or career and whether it suits them or not, as well as how the application process works in different countries. Thus, students will now be able to make informed decisions about their academic futures.
