Why Attend a University Fair?

By Jane Playdon

Updated October 13, 2021 Updated October 13, 2021

What are the benefits of attending a university fair when choosing which courses to apply to? Some may seem obvious, but to get a fuller understanding of the experience, I went along to last weekend’s QS World Grad School Tour event in London.

I was joined by almost 1,000 prospective master’s and PhD students, 是谁在忙着与来自80多所国际顶尖大学和研究生院的代表交谈, 随时帮助考生找到理想的研究生项目.

该活动现已举办了第十四届,定期在40个国家的68个城市举办. 它的持续流行表明了参加大学博览会的独特优势,而不仅仅是在网上搜索选项. To give a better idea of what to expect, 下面是一些参加周六展会的人对参加展会的好处的看法……

Meet universities face to face

The chance to meet universities face to face, by interacting with official representatives and alumni, 大学活动如QS世界研究生院之旅的主要好处是什么, 在一些机构的会议桌边形成的混乱反映了这一点. 学生们谈到了对问题得到即时个性化回复的吸引力, 了解更多有关项目和提供的资助机会, 对申请流程有个大概的了解——所有这些都是亲自参加的原因, rather than just stick to online research.

Molly Jack, 31, 有兴趣从事可持续发展领域研究的博士生, said: “I’m looking at a wide range of universities, 我希望能从他们那里得到反馈,如果可能的话还能得到赞助来帮助我继续我的职业生涯.”

Find out what university admissions officers want

参加大学博览会也是一个更好地了解大学的机会 what university admissions officers are looking for 同时,你也有机会向他们展示你的优秀品质,从而给他们留下深刻印象. Among the university representatives I spoke to, attributes such as determination, passion and focus were named among the most important.

卢克·帕里(Luke Parry)在英国的商业发展部工作 University of Law, 他说:“法律是很难的……说到底,你需要真的想要它,要有兴趣和激情。.”

And Sophie Martin, 伦敦南岸大学研究生导师, said they look for “someone that’s focused, 因为很明显,他们是最容易帮助的,你可以找到最适合他们的东西,这些人在开始学习后想要做什么, because that can also assist the advisory process, and just someone with enthusiasm and focus, because at this level, postgraduate level, that’s really what you would expect from a candidate.”

工作经验也可能是许多机构在招聘某些研究生课程时的关键因素. Daniel Guth, 卡迪夫大学面向英国和欧盟市场的研究生招生官, said: “If you don’t have a 2.1个本科学位,但在你的工作经验中表明你能够表现得很好, then we will consider that. 它是灵活的,取决于菠菜网最稳定正规平台正在研究的项目.”

Attend seminars and presentations

As well as speaking to the university representatives, 学生也可以从某一特定主题的几位专家的综合知识中受益, by attending some of the seminars and presentations 这是QS世界研究生院之旅的一大特色.

On this occasion, 其中一个研讨会是关于理解博士申请流程的, with presenters from University College London (UCL), 伦敦帝国理工学院和墨尔本大学——非常适合Shazmin Motiwala这样的学生, 26, 她毕业于伦敦国王学院(King’s College London),她说她不确定是要攻读研究型硕士学位,还是直接攻读药物科学博士学位. When asked what she hoped to get out of the event, 她说,她想“更好地了解申请过程,了解不同的大学”。.

还举行了法律论坛研讨会,演讲人来自伦敦国王学院和伦敦玛丽女王大学, 牛津大学和剑桥大学校友之间的小组讨论, and a presentation on studying in 美国.

应用 for scholarships, exclusive to fair attendees

 

Finally, 大多数参加大学博览会的人都有一个共同的主题,那就是寻找融资机会的重要性. 好消息是,所有参加QS世界研究生院之旅的人都有资格参加 apply for scholarships,专供参展人士使用,总价值1美元.2 million.

 

这些费用要么是固定数额,要么高达学费的60%. 申请过程因奖学金的不同而不同(有14种奖学金),所以请查看 QS Graduate Scholarship page for details.

In addition, 前100名参会者可获得免费的QS顶级研究生院指南, 其中包括热门学习地点和课程的指南, advice on funding and careers, 以及世界各地大学研究生院系的详细信息——这对决策过程有额外的帮助.

If you missed the QS World Grad School Tour…

到目前为止,今年QS世界研究生院之旅已经去了欧洲, 美国, 加拿大, Latin America, and Africa. If you missed the London event, 你将有更多的机会享受所有的福利(外加获得一些免费的巧克力和糖果袋), 现在巡演将继续前往欧洲其他城市, Asia and the Middle East. 如果你这次错过了,几个月后又会重新开始巡演! 看看菠菜网最稳定正规平台下面的短视频,了解如何为这次旅行做准备.
