More than 66 universities, plus representatives from Australia and New Zealand, are coming to Jersey to take part in the 2010 Higher Education Fair which is held this week.
The fair will give Island students a chance to find out more about the universities represented, and attend a range of special seminars providing information on topics such as how to choose a course and university, teaching, and on subjects such as art, veterinary medicine and law.
Before and after the fair university representatives will also be visiting schools to give talks and lead interactive workshops to encourage students, aged 14 and above, to think about the idea of higher education and the options available to them.
“The fair gives local students a great opportunity to talk directly to universities about their options and start to gain varied and extensive information that will help them make important decisions that lie ahead of them.” said Careers Jersey’s Alan Williams.
This year the High Education Fair has secured significant sponsorship from Capita Fiduciary Group which has its head office in Jersey. Anthony O’Keeffe, CEO of Capita Fiduciary Group said “We are delighted to sponsor the Higher Education Fair which plays an important role in helping our local students make an informed decision about their further education and ultimately, their future. Hopefully, this generation will make their way back to Jersey and their skills and experience will contribute to the continued success of our Island."
The Higher Education Fair will take place at Hautlieu School on Thursday 11 March from 1.30 – 6.30 pm.
