Several university events are organised by the career counselling team throughout the year. A university fair with 21 universities was organised in collaboration with CIALFO, the global career exploration of Oakridge at school campus in the month of September 2022. All these events gave an excellent opportunity to the students and parents to interact with the University admission officers giving them insight into aspects of the university that are not mentioned on the websites.
