AISL hosted the 2019 Council of International Schools College and University Fair on Wednesday 9 October. Representatives from 14 universities in 5 countries attended: Canada, Germany, Netherlands, Spain, and United States of America.
252 students attended from 21 schools, along with their parents, teachers, and advisors. They listened to presentations about the different tertiary education systems in different countries, financial aid and need, merit, and talent scholarships, and application tips and requirements. Participants then visited with the representatives at their booths to explore the opportunities offered at each institution and to ask specific questions.
Ongoing communication between representatives and the students was achieved through StriveScan. This technology enables representatives to provide remote support to students after the fair, and to capture their interest in the institution (which is an important factor towards acceptance).
Participants expressed that they found the Fair very informative and came away enthusiastic about the university and college journey.
The representatives of the colleges and universities all acknowledged the friendly and welcoming atmosphere of AISL.
