Tuesday 29 January

Students eager to study abroad in the United Kingdom will chat live with some of the country’s leading education institutions when IDP Education’s largest ever Virtual Fair commences on today.
 
IDP’s UK Virtual Fair will invite more than 30 institutions based in the United Kingdom to interact online with students from India, China, Malaysia, Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Oman, Turkey and the UAE.
 
Academics and experts from the University of Sussex, University of Southampton, University of Birmingham, The University of Aberdeen and University of Dundee are among those hosting Virtual Fair live chats.
 
More than 1,500 student registrations have already been received for the free online event.
 
Andrew Thompson, Chief Executive Officer at IDP Education, said students would receive valuable academic and career guidance directly from institutions abroad at the press of a button.
 
“We’re bringing some of the United Kingdom’s most recognised institutions straight to your computer screens,” Mr Thompson said.
 
“The United Kingdom is an international study destination of choice, and home to quality institutions providing global recognition of qualifications and graduate outcomes.
 
“The UK Virtual Fair will help you make informed decisions about the world’s second largest international study destination, and learn about the range of student placement services offered by IDP Education.”
 
The United Kingdom is home to 10 of the world’s top 100 universities based on the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2012-2013.
 
Each institution has a unique Virtual Fair website profile featuring facilities, entry requirements and student lifestyle. Students can watch video testimonials featuring fellow students, and learn more about their career prospects after graduation.
 
Students can also receive ‘offline’ responses from institutions, and seek advice from professionally-trained IDP Education counsellors to further explore their study options after ‘live chat’ sessions.
 
The Virtual Fair runs Tuesday 29 January to Thursday 31 January. Registration is free at www.ukvirtualfair.com.
