Meet students at CIS schools in Africa during this specially curated CIS University Exploration Day

In a new world of multiple virtual events, the CIS exploration days are easily one of the best organised, well attended and highest quality fairs you can be involved in.

University participant at the CIS University Exploration Day—Africa in 2021

We take a unique approach to planning these CIS events so that you can cultivate new connections with students worldwide. Our close working relationships with our school member counsellors and their leaders create an opportunity for you to engage where:

  1. events are scheduled into the students' day-time academic agendas to prioritise the events for student participation
  2. school leaders are kept informed and encourage your connections with their students to help them explore learning opportunities worldwide
  3. the events stay small to enable more targeted and meaningful discussions for students and universities alike

When working with the schools to organize these events, we are careful to ensure that the ratio of students attending supports the number of universities attending to create quality interactions.

The CIS virtual fair provided an excellent opportunity to connect with highly talented high school students from a diverse range of countries that I otherwise wouldn't have had a chance to engage. The organisation and attendance at the virtual fair was good and the quality of enquiry exceeded expectations.
