Empowering Students and Parents Through the Global University Fair
- 19 October 2023
University fairs play a crucial role in the education landscape, offering numerous benefits to students and parents. They bring together a wide range of educational institutions from different countries, allowing students to explore diverse academic programs, campuses, and cultures. This exposure helps students make informed decisions about their higher education options.
Oakridge International School Visakhapatnam provided such a platform for students and parents to explore higher education options, gain insights, and make informed decision by hosting the Global University Fair on October 18. The Fair presented learners with global opportunities in USA, UK, India, China, Australia, Europe, Canada, and Ireland. More than 55+ World-Class Universities, and about 525 students and parents from various schools around Visakhapatnam were a part of the fair.
The Global University Fair provided an exceptional platform for students to engage in one-on-one interactions with university representatives. This direct engagement allowed them to gain valuable insights into new-age career options, admission requirements, and scholarship opportunities. Moreover, students received crucial advice on how to craft a strong university application.
Ishita, a grade 12 student who attended the fair, shared her perspective. She emphasized that beyond the admission information readily available elsewhere, the fair gave her a genuine sense of what university life might entail. This holistic understanding helped her identify the areas she needed to focus on in her academic journey, making this event stand out from others she had attended.
Ms. Shaila Bhamidipati, Principal of Oakridge International School Visakhapatnam, said “It is of utmost significance for us to offer our students the knowledge, resources, and guidance required to make informed decisions about their higher education in the second edition of our University Fair. This will enable them to embark on a path towards a successful and fulfilling future.”
Mr. Amit Jain, School Director of Oakridge International School Visakhapatnam, said “Oakridge Global University is not just a wonderful opportunity for networking directly with universities but a catalyst for informed choices and pursuit for academic excellence.
