Apeejay School International, South Delhi, recently conducted a university fair at their campus. At the fair, which is held annually, representatives from premier universities of India and abroad gathered to guide students in making informed career choices and achieving their goals.

The fair was attended by students from Middle Year Programme (MYP) 4 and 5 and Diploma Programme (DP) 1 and 2. The universities that took part in the fair included those of Queen’s, Victoria, Bridgeport, Nova Southeastern, Trinity College Dublin, Ontario Tech University, and Häme University of Applied Sciences, to name a few. They offered detailed expert advice to young learners.

Each of the universities had an array of interesting and relevant courses to offer to train students for extraordinary accomplishments. Some also offered avant-garde courses tailored for trendsetters of tomorrow.

Aryan Roy from DP 1 said, “The experience was pretty good. Initially, there was some confusion about the subject choices and how they are aligned with our future career goals. At the fair, however, we got a very good outlook on the subject combinations, specialisations, and so on. It gave me a lot of clarity regarding my subject choices.”

Added the student, who aims to pursue Biology, “I came across a lot of universities that were offering specialisation in Biomedical Sciences. They guided me about the subjects to focus on, what my score should be in each, and which exams to clear to get scholarships.”

Vedha Jangir, another student from DP 1, said, “Since I want to study abroad, I got a lot of information regarding the kind of subjects that I needed to opt for. For instance, I learned about how the IELTS score criteria are different in different countries. I also got a chance to enquire about food science, since I am interested in culinary. I spoke to some career counsellors, who guided me regarding the universities I could look into. Besides, I am also interested in art, so I visited stalls where universities were offering design courses. They guided me on how I could build my portfolio.”

Along with students, their parents attended the fair too. Sharing her experience, Vedha’s mother Shweta Jangir said, “The university fair gave us the opportunity to look at what options were available other than what my daughter had already thought of. The fair gave us a window into what certain countries and universities can offer. I strongly suggest all parents attend the university fair, which is a good platform to start searching for universities.

Anuj Aggarwal, who visited the fair with his daughter Reha, said, “Hosting such a fair was a great initiative by the school which helped me explore career options for my daughter.”

Aryan’s mother Menoka Roy added, “The exhibition gave us a first-hand insight into higher education opportunities worldwide. We got a lot of clarity on the academic subjects, which is excellent. I look forward to more such initiatives.”
