Applying to university can be a daunting experience, there are so many questions, where do you start? What university should you apply to? What course is the most suitable? Have you taken the right subjects at school? What is an UCAS form? Where will you live?
All these questions and more can be answered at the upcoming Study UK exhibition in Nicosia.
UK universities have long been a staple choice for Cypriots wishing to study abroad but with Brexit looming and universities not having declared a payment structure for 2020 onwards, now is the time to make sure you get answers.
The country is promoted due to the fact that degrees can be obtained within three years and it is easy for Cypriot students to travel there and find work if they so require, although that may change after Brexit. Courses also lead to a wealth of choices for Masters, information on which will also be available at the exhibition.
School students and others looking to go back into education will have a unique opportunity to meet representatives from UK institutions in person and discuss their individual requirements face-to-face. Representatives from over 50 institutions will be at the exhibition and should be able to clear up confusion and offer more details about course structure and grades required.
A full list of exhibitors is available on the exhibition’s website but includes universities from Manchester, Sheffield, Birmingham, Nottingham and Wales.
In addition to meeting exhibitors, students will also have the opportunity to attend seminars and presentations delivered by distinguished academics, university representatives, education counsellors and other specialists. Attendees should expect to be provided with comprehensive information that will help guide them in making the right decision and successfully completing their applications.
While the seminar programme is not out as of yet, the organisers say that it will be announced soon.
The organisers further promise that undergraduates, postgraduates or research candidates will benefit from attending this exhibition.
The admission to the event is free, and those interested are asked to register at ‘www.cy.edukexhibition.org’ in order to avoid delays on arrival. In addition, those who register will have a chance to win a 5 per cent discount on their IELTS examination as well as a free counselling session.
Saturday November 10 and Sunday November 11. The Hilton Hotel, Nicosia, from 3pm to 8pm. For more information contact the British Council on 22-585000, www.cy.edukexhibition.org
