A great way to see and meet the different students is to attend an overseas university fair. The global knowledge of students, teachers and administrators will give you a good feel for the colleges and universities in the country you are traveling. Make sure that you register in advance, as places get limited so booking as soon as possible will pay off big time.
Be sure to bring all of your important information about yourself and also your family. Check with the school you would like to attend to find out if there are any particular courses that they are hiring for the upcoming semester. In some cases, it is even possible to be able to get in touch with one of the professors if you have any specific questions about the course. Most universities and schools have a staff that will be more than happy to help you learn about their school. Of course, this is not always the case, but you should be able to find a person that can answer any questions you may have.
The main objective of these events is to let everyone meet new people and network with each other. With the wide array of students and professionals, you will have a good chance of making connections in a short amount of time. Make sure to spend as much time as possible at the fair so that you can really meet as many people as possible. A lot of the time, the people you meet may become your best friends down the road, so do not miss out on this opportunity to meet them.
